Cobot use is on the rise to assist human workers and increase workplace safety
Cobots, or collaborative robots, are robots that are designed to work with humans. They are typically smaller and lighter than traditional industrial robots and are often used for tasks that are too dangerous or difficult for humans to do themselves. They are built with safety features that allow them to stop working if they encounter a person or they can also work alongside humans to accomplish various tasks. This makes them ideal for use in factories and other workplaces where people and robots interact together.
Cobots are designed to be easy to use and can be programmed to do a variety of repetitive tasks to increase productivity. They are becoming increasingly popular in factories and other industrial settings. They are also being used in research and development labs, where they can be used to help researchers automate tasks that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to do manually.
They offer several benefits over traditional industrial robots. They are smaller and lighter, which makes them easier to move around. They are also less expensive than traditional industrial robots and can be quickly programmed to do a variety of tasks. They have collaborative robot arms that allow them to pick up different sized or shaped items for increased reliability and better production rates.
Cobots are still a relatively new technology, and there are many applications for which they are well suited. In the future, cobots may find uses in a variety of other settings, including healthcare facilities, schools, and homes.
Cobots are used in a variety of industries including but not limited to:
- Food and beverage
In food and beverage, cobots are used for tasks such as packing food into boxes or trays, palletizing food items, and labelling food containers. Cobots are also used in the automotive industry for tasks such as welding car parts together and painting car bodies. In the electronics industry, they are used for tasks such as mounting circuit boards and handling small parts. And finally, in the pharmaceuticals industry, cobots are used for tasks such as counting pills and loading syringes.
