More small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) are realizing how collaborative robots can dramatically improve operations across several areas – from assembly and quality inspection, to pick-and-place and machine tending – as well their usefulness in providing assistance for physically demanding tasks.
The key advantage of many collaborative robots is that they are safer to work alongside human workers. They also have a much smaller footprint, and are often inexpensive enough to facilitate a quick return on investment – both areas of concern for SMEs. When viewed together, such benefits often make cobots a compelling option for companies seeking a convenient means of improving productivity and production quality.
In this free download, author Andrew Williams takes you through the latest developments in the use of cobots, including some current and new applications at smaller businesses using cobots, and providing a checklist of criteria to evaluate whether a cobot is right for a company or particular process.
