Competitive pressures drive industry to continuously innovate and develop new products and processes. Today, more than ever before, companies are integrating robots to help meet these challenges. Robot manufactures are relentlessly developing new robotic capabilities to meet the demand for innovation.
“The Collaborative Human-Robot” is one of the new class of robots that is just now coming out of the laboratory onto the factory floor. Until now robots required costly safety guarding to protect humans. The collaborative robot has no safety guarding but rather new technology to make it safe for humans to be in the same proximity as the robot. This allows humans to work alongside the robot as a team. In this team the robot would be assigned tasks that are tiresome or repetitive while the human would concentrate on tasks that require dexterity or ingenuity. We will explore some of these new safety technologies and some of the current and potential applications of the Collaborative Human-Robot Team.
