The development of cobotics has been accelerated by two recent standards (ISO 10218 and ISO/TS 15066) that define operating and safety ranges.

Why a collaborative robot?

The cobot is a robot designed specifically to work in an environment where humans operate ensuring their safety and physical integrity. The cobot can interact with the operator to perform repetitive, low-value-added tasks such as positioning or moving parts. The particularity of some cobots is to have been designed to be programmed easily, thanks to their simplified interface or directly by manipulating the cobot, the JAKA range is the perfect example.

The result is lower speeds due to its design to ensure operator safety than a traditional industrial robot. So the cobot will be perfectly adapted, as long as we want a collaboration or a co-activity between man and machine on the same workstation and you want to optimize the surface on the ground.

This means that the cobot will find, especially its place on small series with low or medium cadences, to introduce more flexibility on robotic tasks.

Key benefits of cobots

  • They do not require a protective cage and therefore simplify the production line and the movement of operators
  • They reduce performance losses and non-qualities related to operator fatigue
  • They bring flexibility to the plant due to their speed of implementation
  • They value the operator on tasks with higher added value
  • In general, they increase the attractiveness of the operator position

    CAS 3: Flexible production, ensuring high quality and efficiency

    Case: Metal parts surface
    sanding Find ways to replace traditional robotic solutions to optimize the sandblasting process

    Challenges:
    During the production process, the sand projection process was unstable and the number of defective products increased.
    The safety and noise experienced by employees, as well as the risk of occupational diseases caused by dust, had to be controlled.

    Solutions:

    • The JAKA® Zu 7 can make a flexible grip and 360-degree rotational treatment to ensure the stability of the product process.
    • With the JAKA® Zu 7 loading and unloading are fully automatic, guaranteeing the quality and efficiency of production.

    Achievements:
