Benefits of our services

Cobots are not just transforming the way we approach industrial processes; they are providing a host of advantages that have a significant positive impact on productivity and efficiency. Let’s delve into the myriad benefits that these collaborative mechanical companions bring to your production floor.

A Breeze to Set Up

Cobots, unlike their larger industrial counterparts, are typically smaller in size and easier to operate. Their setup process is relatively straightforward, and it usually doesn’t require extensive programming knowledge. Consequently, training employees to use and program cobots is generally effortless. In some cases, companies can deploy fully-functional cobots within weeks, which is a significant contrast to industrial bots that require specialized expertise to customize and take several months to set up for daily use.

Empowers Employees

Repetitive movements are responsible for causing injuries such as hernias, carpal tunnel syndrome, and back pain, making them the primary cause of workplace injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018, nearly 39% of musculoskeletal disorders in American workplaces were related to back injuries and discomfort. Cobots offer a simple solution to automate repetitive manual tasks for workers, freeing them up to engage in more creative tasks. This not only increases productivity but also reduces the number of sick days taken by employees due to workplace injuries.

Versatile

Collaborative robots are versatile and can perform a range of tasks, provided that you have the appropriate end effectors. With just a few minutes of programming, packing cobots can handle labeling or inspection tasks. Some collaborative robots are also designed to be mobile, allowing for easy transfer to other workstations. In contrast, their industrial counterparts require significant modifications to their hardware and software to be repurposed, making cobots a more straightforward and flexible option.
