Answers for customers

What types of collaboration exist?

There are three types of collaboration, coexistence, intermittent collaboration and cooperative or close collaboration. They are enabled by safety-rated safety functions in collaborative robots, including power and force limiting, speed and separation monitoring, hand guiding, and safety-rated stop, as defined by ISO10218-1 and ISO/TS15066.

When is a collaborative robot useful?

Collaborative robots are useful where flexible automation is needed, such as smaller production batches where a lot of manual labor exists today. Collaborative robots have a smaller footprint with a lightweight design which makes them suitable for environments with limited spaces, their easy programming and lead-through features makes them ideal for first time robot users. The collaborative robots are ideal for customers who want to create a barrier free work environment where humans and robots can work side by side.
