Cobots are not simply new types of industrial robots. They are collaborative robots. That means they work as colleagues on your team. When we say colleagues, we really mean like colleagues. They work together with your employees and relieve them of strenuous and monotonous tasks. Together with the cobots, your employees can achieve so much more.
By the way, there are possible applications in almost every industry.
Cobots solve many challenges
A major problem for the industry is finding and retaining skilled workers. In order to solve this shortage of skilled workers, the company must become more attractive so that existing skilled workers can be retained and new ones can be recruited. In addition, the company’s own specialists must be deployed more effectively. Repetitive tasks should therefore not be performed by skilled workers if possible, but automated with cobots.
Cobots help you to relieve employees and to produce even faster while maintaining high quality. This is possible in many industries.
Can cobots really work alongside and with humans?
Yes, this is really possible! Depending on the safety assessment, the cobots are allowed to produce with your employees without a safety fence. They complete individual work steps and hand objects to their human colleagues for further processing.
They screw together parts that have been placed ready beforehand. They pack products on a packaging line and assemble packages.
With this characteristic, they can be used completely flexibly in your production.
Cobots are good team players in another aspect. They are usually easy to implement and program. This means that integration is generally very straightforward and further operation is often possible without external support.
All this has a positive effect on the return in investment. In most cases, the cobot acquisition has already paid for itself after one year.
Cobots are not only team players and quickly amortized, they increase the efficiency of individual work steps and significantly reduce material waste. When your employees go home for the day, the cobots continue to work. This allows them to complete particularly monotonous and time-consuming tasks 24/7, and your employees can focus on more demanding tasks.
Wide range of applications
Your product quality does not have to suffer under high production volumes. With a repeatability of +/+ 0.03mm, collaborative robots can perform the same activity for hours without losing precision.
So even quality control, where precision is even more important, is possible.
You still can’t believe that collaborative robots can really take over tasks right next to your employees and work together with them?
Then watch this video or arrange a Cobot demo or rental. A test of your planned task is then easily possible.
