Are cobots inherently safe?

Results from the Global Robotics Report 2019 identified that 79 per cent of automation distributors do not believe their customers understand the safety requirements of installing a collaborative robot.

Me and the Machine

Paralyzed people can learn to walk again with the aid of electromechanical exoskeletons. However, it's not easy. It takes a lot of engineering and hard training.

5 More Ways Robots Keep People Safe

Robots may have been accused of stealing jobs, but they're actually doing more than most people realize to keep workers safe as they go about their daily tasks. Let's take a closer look at five more ways that robots are helping to accomplish this.

Collaborative robotics - history and recent trends

Today cobots represent the fastest growing segment of industrial robotics. Here Sophie Hand traces a brief history of collaborative robots and looks into the most promising future developments in the industry.

Robots or Cobots: Which to Choose?

Today's plant managers are faced with a dearth of automation technologies but it's not always obvious what will work best. There is rarely, if ever, a one-size-fits-all approach.

What is Machine Vision?

Machine vision is used in a variety of industrial processes, such as material inspection, object recognition, pattern recognition, electronic component analysis, along with the recognition of signatures, optical characters, and currency.

Vision systems from SICK enable flexible automation for positioning, inspection, and measurement tasks. It also promotes the use of collaborative robots or "cobots" as a means to effective and safe human-robot collaboration.

Robot Modularity - Q&A with Víctor Mayoral, CEO of Acutronic Robotics

Machines should be built out of the most appropriate hardware for each particular purpose. And that's where modular robots deliver a big advantage. In modular robotics you just choose the best hardware including the H-ROS technology and built the robot.

Talking Automate 2019 with Universal Robots

Booth #7154 - Our booth features four different application clusters for machine tending, packaging, assembly and processing. We chose to focus on these applications as they are currently experiencing a significant demand for cobot automation.

Benefits of Collaborative Robots

It is true that a collaborative robot is designed to work without additional physical guarding like fencing. But the robot is rarely a lone component in a system.

SICK is taking safety to the next level with collaborative robot systems

There is an increasing demand for collaborative robots that can work autonomously and adapt to changing production conditions. This requires reliable sensors that detect human presence and can overcome future challenges with the development of collaborative technologies.
