Industrial collaborative robots are a breakthrough in industrial process automation. The use of collaborative technology increases the efficiency of those processes that are repeated, monotonous, or are a risk of injury to a human employee. Thus, the production departments have greater opportunities and flexibility to move staff members to activities that add value to the company and enable employees to develop their potential.
Engaging collaborative robots in production processes is simple and secure. Compared to industrial robots, collaborative robots work in a limited space with flexible transfer options. Installation and programming are a significant plus when deciding to include them in the production process. A great benefit is its safe operation in cooperation with human. Cage protection and remote control are not required. Individual types of collaborative robots have security sensors that allow the robot to stop automatically when touched by a person and then return to its original planned action.
