Businesses large and small are implementing cobots into their manufacturing to boost productivity

Collaborative robots or "cobots" take on repetitive and mundane jobs, increasing quality, efficiency, and productivity while freeing up employees to work on other value-added tasks. Unlike traditional robots, cobots work safely alongside humans without the need for safety fencing or caging. Due to their safety, flexibility, and ease of use, businesses of all sizes are implementing cobots to automate tasks, boost productivity, and improve their bottom line.

Without the need for safety caging, fencing, and other expensive equipment that traditional robots require, cobots are highly affordable and come in all-inclusive packages that make it easy and fast to implement.

Cobots can work in complex human environments safely without the need for safety caging, allowing businesses to deploy and easily move them in and out of different workstations easily. This flexibility is ideal for high-mix/low volume manufacturers too.



With safety sensors built into every joint, cobots will stop if it runs into an object or if a person hits it. No need to worry about caging or safety fencing. Staff can work safely and collaboratively in conjunction with cobots.

Due to their ease of use, ability to co-work safely next to humans, and flexibility, there are less barriers to entry with cobots. By reducing labor costs, increasing productivity and efficiency, businesses see a return of investment in as little as a few weeks. 



No programming involved and no prior experience necessary. Operators simply "show" the cobot a task and it learns. Its simple and intuitive user interface allows staff to use cobots in minutes and teach it simple to complex tasks.



Unlike traditional robots which require safety caging and expensive equipment, cobots are easy to implement and seamlessly roll into existing production lines; With wheels, you can roll cobots in and out of workstations easily.
