The Collaborative Robot Market Will Exceed US$11 Billion by 2030, Representing 29% of the Total Industrial Robot Market
"The hardware innovation is still trailing behind, and most of the value related to cobots does not come from collaboration. It comes through ease-of-use, re-programmability, lower total cost compared to industrial systems, and re-deployability.
Much like other industries, the automotive industry is changing. With the increase in the variety of vehicle models, variants, and derivatives being produced and the shorter product life cycles in the automotive industry.
The NEW Collaborative Robot Vacuum Tool (CRVT) from Bimba adds unparalleled flexibility to your collaborative robot. The standard CRVT is highly configurable to meet your application needs, but simple to install and operate.
Learning without programming means anyone can teach OB7 to do hundreds of complex automation jobs quickly. The operator simply shows OB7 how to do the job by physically moving the cobot through the steps, and it learns and remembers.
Columbia Engineering researchers have made a major advance in robotics by creating a robot that learns what it is, from scratch, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics.
Universal Robots Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Selling the World's First Commercially Viable Collaborative Robot
Universal Robots marks a decade of pioneering collaborative robots, now the fastest-growing segment of industrial automation. The company is poised for continued growth as its cobots continue to lower the automation barrier within a wide range of industries.
Milestone investment will combine connected digital technologies, state-of-the-art collaborative robotics and cutting-edge artificial intelligence research to create the most sophisticated, automated and flexible Factory of the Future.
As the continued e-commerce wave drives industry-wide pressure to deliver orders on time, there has been an explosion of cobot startups focused on improving the efficiency of picking and packaging boxes of mixed items.
A recent report from QY Research looked at the global construction robots sales market and forecasted that the market would hit $420 million by 2025.
IMTS 2018 takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL September 10th - 15th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
The UR3 was integrated in the assembly line by Hirebotics, a Universal Robots Certified System Integrator that basically works like a staffing agency for cobots, letting startups like Creating Revolutions rent cobots by the hour without any upfront capital.
Top of the line SCARA in speed and precision is designed for easy integration into the production line with predictive maintenance functions
Matt Simon for Wired: Today, three of these machines from Universal Robots handle the brute sanding and painting, while humans handle more complicated tasks like assembly. Some of these workers even turned into robot technicians.
Bill Ibelle for News@NorthEastern: While drones and driverless cars dominate the headlines, another breakthrough-robot dexterity-is likely to have an even greater impact in both business and everyday life
William G. Lovell for Electronic Design: I began using it for a new type of robot called the "Omni-chassis." This is a powered robotic chassis that can carry different payloads or functioning modules.

Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and ﬂexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, reﬁned process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and stafﬁng challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
