How Do I Know It’s Time to Buy a Robot?
If you’re still waiting to take the leap into robotic automation, you’re not alone. Yet, labor is still hard to find for many manufacturers, and ergonomics and safety awareness is pinnacle.
How Safe is Your Cobot?
Designed to work safely with, or in close proximity to humans, collaborative robots (cobots) like Yaskawa’s HC-series models are used for frequent human-robot interaction while operating at reduced speeds. While this type of robotic automation can help provide the flexible production layouts necessary to address rapidly changing customer demands, cobots must be installed properly to safely achieve success.
Quick Robot Wins for Greater OEE
With market demands more pressing than ever, the “throughput struggle” is real. To increase productivity and strive for 100% effectiveness, many manufacturers are placing greater focus on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to measure the efficiency of individual machines, automated workcells, production lines, and even entire factories.
