Collaborative robots are robots that are capable of operating around people without the need of external guarding or safety devices (pending a risk assessment of the total application). Without the need for a large safety enclosure, robots can now be used in places that wouldn’t have been feasible in the past. With the tight labor market, now, more than ever, collaborative robots or cobots make sense for repetitive tasks where a human could be deployed to a more valued added activity. With typical payback periods of less than two years, the economic case for a cobot is straightforward and easy to justify.
Cross Company has extensive experience specifying cobots with end of arm tooling and then deploying the fully functional unit into all kinds of industries. For more information on how a collaborative robot can make your process more efficient while raising quality, contact us today.
