Barriers to collaboration are a thing of the past, since FANUC’s CR Series Collaborative Robots safely share the same workspace and work side-by-side with people, without the need of safety fences. FANUC Collaborative Robots immediately stop after coming into contact with a person or fixed object thanks to proven safe contact stop sensor technology.
As a business owner, there is no greater concern then that of the safety of your employees. COBOTS were designed with worker safety in mind. Taking up no more room than a human being, Cobots are designed to work safely right next to their human counterparts.
Built-in Safety Features
Cobots have a number of built-in safety features designed to keep your employees safe while working nearby. These built-in features include force-sensing, limited use of force and power and joint actuators to minimize contact force.
Force-sensing capabilities allow COBOTS to make adaptive decisions regarding the amount of force necessary for a specific task. This adaptive decision making, along with its human-like cadence, enables COBOTS to work with exacting precision (+/-1 mm) while working next to its human counterparts.
With limited power and use of force, the actuators on collaborative robots joints have limited contact force. These actuators prevent excess force from being applied when making contact, which can result in injury to nearby human counterparts.
Every safety measure has been taken to ensure that COBOTS are a safe and reliable tool that can work cage-free, right next to your highly skilled workforce.
Let COBOTS Do the Dangerous Jobs
COBOTS can be programmed to perform a number of tasks and used for many applications that might otherwise cause harm to its human counterparts. Just think about all of the workplace injuries your company will avoid when COBOTS operate the heavy equipment, saws, and other dangerous machinery. Additionally, COBOTS can handle dangerous materials, such as those with sharp edges or coated with hazardous chemicals.
