Production equipment robot-people

Markets most competitive industries grow each day, so you have to manage to produce more, and better. And industrial development is bestial year after year.

Robots colaborativosThe robots were a huge breakthrough in the automotive industry (and other), but they could never be combined with people to work together and increase productivity due to security reasons people. Bueno, Now this has changed, and collaborative robots are a reality.

The automotive industry, It is one of the pioneers (once again) when using collaborative robots work of the operators of production lines, maintenance, Logistics, and any type of automobile factory work you can think.

Robots colaborativos 2Automotive brands already have teams of expert programmers who are responsible for creating and scheduling “brains” robots and industrial applications so that the importance of collaboration is growing slowly. simultaneous work, and safe thanks to the large number of sensors used.

It has reached a point this kind of collaboration between humans and machines, that some others are needed so that it is impossible to break these teams without losing production and efficiency.

Robots are “educated” to understand that people need them, and protected so that any protective barriers are not necessary around. Big change from the usual robots, they are not able to recognize a person before harm.

Robots colaborativos 3Given the large number of sensors that lead collaborative, It requires that technical programmers are still more and better trained than before. New challenges for technicians and new forms of programming.

The applications are endless, But imagine a simple. Placing bolts in the body for example. The robot distinguishes whether to place the bolt and where depending on whether the body belongs to a pattern or other, or an engine or other. And then there is the logistics operator bolt feeding the robot. The robot will slow its march if it detects that the operator is nearby to avoid any kind of mishap, and then accelerate its pace to keep the overall pace of the assembly line. Simple, Huh? and efficient and safe at the same time.

As you can see, the future is collaborative. And even more so automotive.
