Automation the Easy Way: Collaborative Robots

Thu, Mar 28, 2019 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Educational Service Center

Collaborative robots, or cobots, are a growing element of smart manufacturing. Many engineers are intrigued by these next-generation machines that can control force and work safely next to people in work cells without traditional safety guarding. Since they first burst onto the scene a decade ago, cobots have made automation more accessible to smaller manufacturers with lower-volume, high-mix production loadings. Instead of replacing workers, they are a tool that enables operators to work more efficiently—removing them from working like robots—and becoming cobot programmers while handling more value-added tasks.
