Cobotics offer a number of advantages for production workshops. In the first instance, it provides a safety maximum the operator in carrying out the various manipulations. What’s more, the recently introduced cobot models are easier to handle. Learning how they work doesn’t require extensive training. Similarly, the use of this technology enables operators to entrust the most tiring tasks (handling, unloading, checking) to the machine. As a result, they can easily devote themselves to work that requires a great deal of thought. This enables improve productivity within a plant.
Thanks to their mobility options, cobots are ideal for small spaces. They also connect easily to digital equipment. Able to be guided by a tablet, these machines are very easy to handle, and can be used for both complicated and simple tasks. It is important to note that the tablet must be equipped with an emergency stop button.
It’s also worth mentioning that cobotics accentuates the relationship between man and machine by bringing them physically closer together. Similarly, when executing its tasks, the cobot adapts its speed to production needs. This avoids the risk of collisions.
This technology can be very cost-effective for your plant, as it is less expensive than conventional robotic technology. What’s more, cobots consume less energy than older robotic solutions.
