A key benefit of easy-to-use and quick to deploy collaborative robots (cobots), like Yaskawa’s Smart Series, is having an off-the-shelf ecosystem of end-of-arm tools and accessories. From grippers to sensors, and vision systems to tool changers, there are a variety of robotic tools to facilitate successful collaborative applications. Read More

Robot systems are most profitable for facilities that produce a high mix of pallet types at a high volume, or over multiple shifts. Systems can assemble about one pallet per minute (480 per shift). Fixed machinery still makes the most sense when producing high volumes of the same pallet type and size. The biggest ROI benefits come from the robotic system's ability to produce a variety of pallet types with minimal down time due to changeover. Read More

As many manufacturers consider transitioning to a distributed manufacturing system (DMS) for greater production flexibility, the concept of collaborative robotic implementation becomes paramount. A power and force limiting (PFL) collaborative robot (cobot) with sensitive force monitoring capability, like Yaskawa’s six-axis HC10, is an easy-to-use machine with an industrial pedigree that is designed Read More
