Cobots Adeptly Handle Fixed or Mobile Packaging Production

TAGS: Palletizing
The strength of collaborative robots, whether in fixed positions or mobile, is their flexibility in handling different tasks.

This overview on cobots and mobile robots from Omron shows a variety of applications. Packaging-related ones highlighted include picking and placing rigid containers on a filling line and palletizing. Fixed or mounted on a mobile workstation, cobots can work side-by-side with human workers and without fencing. The same unit can be equipped with grippers from various suppliers to fit multiple applications.
