Unlike an industrial robot, the Cobot does not have to be housed in a protective cell. Lightweight construction and integrated safety technology, which will set the robot arm to idle after being touched, make it possible to operate Cobots in an environment with immediate interaction with human beings. This will not only lead the worker to perceive the Cobot as a natural automation tool for their daily work but also helps save a tremendous amount of production space.
When not in use, the Cobot simply returns to its home position, clearing the welding bench for other tasks. The phenomenal ease with which it can be programmed and its intuitive operation make it a cinch to enter into this new world of welding and ease the load on the welder during the production of small and medium production runs:
- The responsibilities of the welding specialist are reduced to setting up the Cobot. This frees up capacity, allowing the welder to shift their attention to other, more demanding tasks.
- The loading and removal of parts into the welding fixture as well as the release of the pre-programmed welding sequence can be done by semi-skilled labourers – with no detrimental effects on the welding results.
Smart addition to your production planning: Cobots will work 365 days a year at a consistently excellent level of quality.
