As robotic technology continues to develop, more manufacturers are applying industrial robots to automate tasks that are repetitive or dangerous for human workers or those that create bottlenecks within the facility. In these situations, robotic automation can increase productivity and efficiency, boost product quality and improve safety in a variety of manufacturing sectors. While the […]

Machine Vision: Why Your Industrial Robot Needs Eyes

Industrial robots safely and efficiently perform tasks that are either too repetitive, difficult or hazardous for human workers and do so in a way that enhances production by eliminating bottlenecks and increasing product quality, but without “eyes” to see what they’re doing, robotic applications can be limited. Since a robot can only perform a task […]

Getting to Know Industrial Robots

Should I Buy a Cobot or an Industrial Robot for Pick and Place?

Pick-and-place robots can help speed up the process of picking up objects and placing them in another location, increasing productivity and handling repetitive tasks while freeing up workers for more complex jobs in the facility. When you’re ready to automate pick-and-place activities, one of the first questions to address is whether to use an industrial […]

How to Successfully Introduce a Cobot into the Workplace

Collaborative robots, also called cobots, are getting a lot of attention because they address labor shortages and enhance productivity in a more cost-effective way than traditional industrial robots due to a simpler set up (think more along the lines of plug-and-play than complex system integration) and their ability to work alongside humans, while freeing them […]

The Differences Between Collaborative and Industrial Robots

As the world of robotics continues to become a fast-growing industry, so does the way in which we use them. Collaborative robots and industrial robots are quickly becoming staples in modern factories and businesses. In this article, we will explore the significant differences between cobots and traditional industrial robots. We will also discuss the benefits […]

Cobots and the Future of Advanced Robotics in Manufacturing

Historically, automation in manufacturing has been a bit of a hammer. And as machine operators and plant managers alike know, not every problem is a nail.  Fortunately, automation in manufacturing has advanced considerably over the last several years, bringing more agile, more cost effective, and safer solutions to manufacturing’s most wicked problems. Collaborative robots, also […]

Are Collaborative Robots More Efficient than Workers?

The core motivation at the heart of technological advances is the desire to create tools that provide an improvement in our effectiveness as workers and, in turn, our business as a whole. As advances in technology continue, they broaden the boundaries and landscape of what was thought possible, and forces employers to be constantly reexamining […]
