In the process of rapid development of Industry 4.0, why do you need co-robots?

Co-robots are not only a disruptive technology in manufacturing, but also open the door to automation in other industries. Industries that have never been interested in robots have suddenly discovered that they can also benefit from automation through collaborative technology. What is the difference? Why do companies outside manufacturing now look like robots instead of an option?

Co-robot is what this name means. They can operate around people without the need for external protection equipment or safety equipment. This is the gateway to the emerging robot industry. Without a large safety shield, the robot can now be used where it was not feasible in the past.
Co-robots are usually easier to program than traditional industrial robots. The company no longer needs people from robot engineers to write simple applications. Your robot is proud to have a very user-friendly and easy-to-use interface that makes it very easy to write programs, modify navigation points, and communicate with numbers I/O.

Regarding the difference between (Techrobots) co-robots and traditional robots, it is time to determine whether co-robots are suitable for your industry. To help you make this decision, we started asking three basic questions:

First, is this a repetitive task?

This is the first problem of the form, because it may be an important issue for quick installation. Both co-robots and traditional robots are programmed to perform tasks over and over again. Although there are some ways to make the robot flexible, it is very simple to repeatedly install the robot to perform the same task.

An example of this might be to place hamburgers on the grill and turn them over within a predetermined time, then remove them from the grill and place them in another location. If done by employees, this task may cause people to stand in front of the grill to process the process again and again until they complete the shift.

These repetitive tasks are very suitable for robot collaboration technology. These examples are endless and not limited to the food industry. No matter whether the task is executed repeatedly in the same way, it is possible to automate the robot.

Second, how long is the repetition time?

He said: "This is a very important question. As a robot expert, this has always been one of my first questions. When considering robot technology, not only the feasibility of the application but also the return on investment ( ROI), to judge whether the application is reasonable from a business perspective. Usually, this component will be ignored until it takes a lot of engineering time. The return on investment is variable, not only considering the application but also considering the operating time and employee burden rate (Payment rate, insurance, disability, social security, etc.). With the increase in low wages, many companies have begun to achieve a faster return on investment to increase the degree of automation of collaboration.

When this revolution took place in Miami, the proud UR3 robot was able to run unsupervised because the company monitored productivity and performance through a cloud interface.

Third, is this (dirty, dirty, dangerous) task?

We touched the boring' part with 3'DS'. But let us elaborate on the dirty and dangerous parts. Dirty work is usually a task that employees do not want to perform. They can be smelly, dirty, and even involve employees who need regular breaks to clean up. These may be morale killers, and employees have a negative attitude towards the tasks they are asked to perform, which affects productivity. Some of these tasks have even begun to fall into danger. Chemical cleaners, working around hot objects or in narrow spaces, can quickly become dangerous. Going back to our previous example of making burgers on the grill, an employee is likely to be injured while completing the task. Not only employees will be accidentally touched and burned, so they may come in contact with employees during the cooking process and cause potentially serious damage.
