WHY COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS OVER TRADITIONAL ONES?

DISTINCT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS AND TRADITIONAL ROBOTS IN THE WORKPLACE

Businesses that have never concerned themselves with robotics are coming to the realization that collaborative technology benefits them as well. Yet why is it that suddenly businesses outside of the manufacturing industry are open to exploring the perks of robotic automation when it simply wasn’t an alternative on the table before? Read on below to discover the two simple reasons as to why:

First and foremost, the name “collaborative robots” suggests exactly what this robot is capable of; being collaborative with other human operators while eliminating the risk of harm to the human operator. Collaborative robots do not require safety guarding around the perimeter, they have sensing technology that can detect when a human is close by and perform accordingly. Robots can now be used in a way that wasn’t achievable in the past.

Secondly, collaborative robots are far more easier to operate and program than traditional robots. Collaborative robots have a friendly-user interface which allow any human operator without programming experience to easily operate it and modify way-points, whereas traditional robots require the assistance of robotic engineers to program them to perform simple applications. You will have access to 3rd party developers who offer additional assets for the collaborative robot, making it very easy to perform almost any task you want!
