One of our customers has to palletize a wide range of products every day (over 350, of different weights and volumes) which make any other non-collaborative automation inapplicable. Managing line changes by intervening in the reprogramming of a traditional automation would be – in this context – absolutely inefficient for the company, involving an unsustainable waste of time.
The simplicity of reprogramming the cobots and the plug & play mode that distinguishes all certified EOATs, on the other hand, allow for a quick change of line. Our customer, with operations of just one minute, is able to replace the end effector on the robot’s wrist and start the preset program for the item to be palletized.
These are just a few examples of how the operational and integrative flexibility of cobots is a valuable feature and an indispensable ally of those companies that are confronted with frequent production changes.
