Cobots, a combination of the words “cooperation” and “robot”, are compact robots used to automate repetitive industrial processes. The collaboration between the operator and the robot is at the heart of the technology.
What are COBOTS?
Cobots are collaborative robots that allow companies to access robotic automation. Affordable, they can be integrated into production cycles, whether new or existing. This new technology allows a machine tool to act autonomously, but can also act as an assistant to the operator. The main advantage? Cobots can do tasks far too often exhausting, dangerous or difficult for the worker. Versatile, cost-effective, secure and flexible, these collaborative robots allow companies to avoid manufacturing defects caused by employees’ repetitive tasks.
Blazing space saving!
These robots are compact and easily redeployable to other applications, without changing the production structure. No barrier or guard is required in the work environment. In addition, they can be moved quickly while offering the ability to reuse programs for recurring tasks. Cobots are safe; they comply with all applicable safety standards. As soon as they hit a physical obstacle, their maneuvers automatically stop and no barrier or guard is needed. Cobots make automation accessible for both small and large businesses! To date, cobots are used in more than 31,000 production environments!
