Collaborative robots were a disruptive technology when they first emerged. The radical future ahead for collaborative robots seems just as innovative.
Pioneering Technology for the Challenges of Today's Marketplace
Fenceless robots automate tasks beyond the capabilities of traditional collaborative robots. Built with a number of safety sensors and protocol, these robots are moving the industry forward.
Calculating return on investment (ROI) is a critical part of the decision-making process for investing in industrial or collaborative robots. Read the blog to learn how to calculate your expected ROI on robots.
Collaborative robots have been a disruptive technology in the robotics industry. The latest developments, primarily on the hardware side, have advanced collaborative robot technology and made them more profitable in a wider range of industries and applications.
Robot grippers are end-of-arm tools (EOAT) that are responsible for grasping objects - a key capability for most robots.
Industry standards and robotic equipment are both evolving to accommodate greater and greater levels of collaborative robot safety in the workplace.
With vision sensors and machine learning capabilities, collaborative and industrial robots are able to achieve far more than they ever could on their own.
Collaborative robots are getting tougher, smarter and easier to implement and train in any size facility.
While the collaborative robots market is relatively new, it's poised for huge growth over the next 7 years.
Cybersecurity needs to be taken very seriously when it comes to collaborative robots.
Collaborative robots are particularly useful in most manufacturing startup settings. They provide great opportunities for small companies to start competing with their larger competitors who have drastically higher production capabilities.
One thing that’s not often discussed with collaborative robots is their ability to provide quicker return on investment (ROI) than their heavier, more dangerous industrial counterparts.
One of the more recent applications to be tested by automation technology is the use of collaborative robots in laboratory settings, and the results are promising.
Collaborative robots are evolving quickly, becoming more and more useful across the industrial sector. There are many reasons why collaborative robots are gaining popularity, but there are a few key features that make them so valuable now, and even more so in the future.
Are collaborative robots or industrial robots the future of deeper, more versatile automation? The answer might just be both.
Many people imagine robots as adapting to virtually every task, performing tirelessly and accurately. In the real world of industrial robotics, this ideal hasn’t been achieved yet – but robots are becoming more versatile. One of the best indicators is the collaborative robot movement. Collaborative robots use special designs or systems to overcome some barriers to operating safely with humans.
