The answer to the best automation solution for your application is increasingly a robot or cobot. There are however, some applications where a simpler, cheaper, purpose-built solution, such as a dedicated pick-and-place unit, might get the job done. Let Engenesys evaluate all the requirements of your application and recommend the best path forward.
With increased cobot usage comes many perks to production lines: The ability to work safely alongside humans; minimized footprint; fast installation; easy programming and the ability to easily redeploy a single cobot to multiple applications. But implementing cobots also poses risks and new challenges if their impact and application in your entire working environment isn’t carefully evaluated and implemented. While many cobots are sold directly to end users, distributors can fail to adequately explain the risks and liabilities associated with their use. That’s where the expertise of an integrator like Engenesys can help ensure a seamless cobot integration into your workflow, with a fast, complete, safe and reliable solution.
While cobots offer many new advantages, their speed and load capacity limitations leave the door open for continued growth in applications for standard robots. When combined with custom product handling systems and custom end effectors, robots provide remarkably flexible and reliable automation solutions.
