Repetitive work using a CoBot
Consider the loading and unloading of machine tools. These are repetitive activities that are tedious and often physically strenuous for workers. So why not have a CoBot carry out this work?
The CoBot never tires or gets bored, and never suffers from RSI or back problems. It is accurate and can be deployed flexibly for a wide range of tasks.
Relieve your workers from tedious and repetitive work, so that they are free to add value to your business in some other way. With the speedy and flexible deployment of a robot arm you can quickly modify your production line for new products. Add value to your business with the CoBot that pays itself off.
The CoBot works safely among people
Improve speed and process quality while reducing the risk of injury associated with working in close proximity to heavy machinery. If the CoBot comes into contact with a person, the patented technology limits the forces at contact. The robot can also be programmed to operate at reduced speed when a human enters the robot’s work area and resume full speed when the person leaves.
The robot arm can be used to carry out most machine applications automatically. While being space-saving, it can also be reprogrammed quickly and used with different machines. It is the perfect choice for small productions or changing workflows and operational set-ups. Robot accessories are easy to attach, so that the tasks of the robot can be modified according to the production requirements.
Most CoBots throughout the world operate without safety facilities (after a risk assessment) alongside people.
Expand your production capabilities with higher quality, consistency and production speed. The deployment of the robot arm in new processes is fast and easy, giving you the flexibility to automate almost any manual task, including those with small batches or fast changeovers. The robot is able to reuse programs for recurrent tasks as you can save the tasks in the software.
Lower your operation costs. The CoBot gives you all the advantages of advanced robotic automation, with none of the traditional extra costs associated with robot programming, set-up and dedicated, shielded cells.
The average payback period of 195 days is the fastest in the robot industry.
All robot arms are certified IP-54. They will need protection when working in corrosive liquid environments.
Examples of repetitive work carried out by the CoBot
