Could Cobots Be the Answer to the Welder Shortage?

The American Welding Society has predicted a deficit of 400,000 welders by 2024. According to specialist welding technologists K-TIG, a US welder's skills are in such high demand they can demand a salary of $100,000.

The sense of touch - Tactile technologies for cobots

Currently, there are several tactile sensors used in cobots, including piezoelectric, piezoresistive, capacitive and elastoresistivity types. Piezoelectric technologies are used for gathering data from the cobot's joints and transmitting it to the controller

Tips for choosing a 3D vision system - The future of vision systems in manufacturing

Manufacturers have long relied on human vision for complex picking and assembly processes, but 3D vision systems are beginning to replicate the capability of human vision in robotics.

Automation Lends Humans a Hand in High-mix Low-volume Manufacturing

The opportunities, conditions and business advantages offered by properly functioning collaborative automation solutions have never been more attractive, while the technology is also more accessible than ever.

Four Ways to Improve Your Logistics Applications

Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.

Better Together: the Human and Robot Relationship

The Collaborative Robot Market 2021-28: Grounds for Optimism After a Turbulent Two Years

Suppliers have gradually moved from simply selling the concepts of "collaboration" or "safety" to marketing specific landing solutions in different application scenarios and service areas.

Drivers and Restraints to the Collaborative Robot Market

While American manufacturers took a hit early on, the sector experienced a 30-month high in December as some U.S. companies calmed supply chain chaos by turning to domestic sourcing options.

FANUC America Launches New CRX Cobot E-Learning Website

FANUC's new CRX e-learning website offers FREE online tutorials. The CRX is an ideal cobot for everyone - plus we guarantee customers eight years of maintenance-free operation, and the same industrial reliability that FANUC is known for.

COBOTS VS COVID: Today's Manufacturing Reality and Tomorrow's New Normal

THIS WHITE PAPER discusses how manufacturers in many industries are leveraging collaborative robots (cobots) to create safe zones for workers returning to production lines.

Human-Robot Collaboration for Assembling Tasks in Manufacturing

Wire Cobots is one of the currently final five experiments who have successfully passed from Phase I to Phase II in the ESMERA project. Thus, they are supported and mentored even more on their path towards industrialising their robotics product.
