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 […]
