Applications

If you’re manufacturing complete products, you probably have an assembly line. As the workforce ages and skilled workers become harder to hire, remaining employees are placed under greater pressure to do the work at the required pace.
Cobots can run a complete assembly process and perform it in a repeatable way. They can locate parts in semi-structured environments, sort them by color or shape, grab them with just the right amount of force, and place them precisely onto the other assembly components. 

It’s now possible to automate some of the toughest, dirtiest jobs in manufacturing. Cobots let you quickly program a finishing application in which the robot brings a part to an external rotary tool. 
Plus, if you mount an orbital tool mounted on the robot, you can program any finishing trajectory in minutes with less than 10 reference points. You can also compensate for external tool wear by using the robot’s force control.


Machine tending is one of the most common uses of collaborative robots on the market. A robotic machine-tending process can be repeated endlessly, as long as the robot continually receives raw parts. 
Some industries use robots for a single step of production, like emptying injection molding machines or CNC machines. When production is running around the clock, robots let you minimize cycle time and run the process continuously by removing parts from the machine’s work area.


Often found between each value-added task in a manufacturing process, pick-and-place applications are a necessary evil. They consist of literally picking up raw materials, workpieces, finished goods, or packages and positioning them on another work plane to continue the process. 
This operation has been performed by humans from the start. Today, we strive to automate these tasks and free human hands so that they can bring more value to your company. Cobots can easily accomplish this tedious action, and they can do it 24-7. With multiple end effectors available, we have a solution for almost any situation.


No matter what you do as a manufacturer, you most likely have quality control checkpoints where your product is tested. If a step was skipped or a part is defective, the quality-testing process will trigger an error that lets you know. 
These kinds of tests can have long run cycles that require very simple operations, like pressing a sequence of buttons. Cobots have an easy-to-use interface that lets the user adjust speed, force, and position, making them the perfect tool for the task.
