How does a cobot integration work?

Would you like to invest in a cobot, but are still unsure how the entire process works? We will show you the most important milestones for successfully integrating cobots into your processes.

1. clarify goals and challenges

It is very important for a successful integration of the cobots to clarify the goals and existing challenges. This way, the integrator knows what is important to you and what challenges you want to solve. Be clear about what you want to achieve with the collaborative robot. Together with the integrator, look at all possible aspects.

2. on-site meeting at the company

The next step is a personal meeting at your company. The production environment will be examined and analyzed in detail. The contact person will also demonstrate a Cobot. You can test it and see for yourself how easy it is to operate.

2.1 Meetings in other companies that use cobots

Sometimes it is also possible to visit other companies that already use cobots. Then you can see the cobot in real use and be fully convinced. A visit is particularly worthwhile for similar applications.

3. concept development

Once all the details have been clarified and you have been able to test the cobot briefly, the integrator creates a concept with all the service providers involved. Once you have confirmed the concept, the actual development of the entire system begins.

4. testing

The system with the collaborative robot has been created and is now ready for extensive testing within your intended application. In order to minimize downtimes for your production, the tests take place at the integrator.

5. training of employees

At the same time, your employees are trained with the UR Academy or a one-day training course. Even after these short but comprehensive training sessions, the cobots can be used effectively. Over the next few weeks, your employees' knowledge will be further consolidated.

6. installation in the company

If everything works perfectly, the installation takes place at your company. This installation usually only takes 1-2 days. This means that operations are hardly interrupted. This ensures a smooth transition.

7. make optimizations

After installation, you can make some optimizations yourself in the following weeks and further adapt the cobot to your needs. The cobots can often be adapted much better to the cycle times of different machines.

These milestones show you very clearly how quickly and easily a cobot can be integrated. You too can benefit from a cobot in your company.

The important advantages quickly become clear from the milestones:

  • You increase the productivity and efficiency of your company
  • Your employees are relieved. Use them sensibly.
  • You can react flexibly.
  • You are one step ahead of the competition.
  • You can easily program the Cobot yourself.

Even and especially in small companies, a cobot makes a lot of sense.
