Cobots in the industry

The vision of collaboration between humans and robots that was created years ago has become reality. With sensitive robot-colleagues, briefly "Cobots", 亚博vip群1 proves: human-robot-collaboration is realizable now.

Sensitive and secure cobots open up new areas of activity

With their integrated sensors, they make it possible to automate delicate assembly tasks in the first place – ranging from assembling automotive transmissions through to inserting rubber plugs or handling flexible parts. If unexpected contact is made, cobots, for example, reduce their speed and thus the kinetic energy to an extent that prevents injury. When people and robots can work safely together, many conventional safety precautions become superfluous. Additional costs that would normally be required for safety technology and protective fences can be dispensed with. Workers and robots can share the same workspace without any concerns. In this way, expensive feed systems and production floor space can be saved.
Without doubt, cobots will play a key role in Industrie 4.0 – not only directly as part of modern production, but as data gatherers that can communicate all relevant information to IT systems in real time if required. Information that can be processed immediately and sent back to production. Knowledge that can be used for optimizing production successively or autonomously. At present, no other component in the production process is capable of carrying out this supporting role as well as modern robotic systems.

Cobots support and relieve humans and thereby confer them new skills.

Man remains at the center of production

The crucial point is to achieve open communication and simple integration. This makes cobots virtuosos for modern, networked production and logistics which will link together automation solutions with services and databases within the foreseeable future. However, a factory staffed by robots alone will remain an illusion, even in the smart factory. People will remain the central focus.
