Lightweight clear guarding allows the collaborative robots work at higher-than-typical speeds and force to meet output goals.

Coty — the worldwide cosmetics parent of brands including Sally Hansen, Rimmel and CoverGirl — projects $500,000 annual savings at its Maryland plant from the use of four mobile carts, each armed (pun intended) with two pick-and-pack cobots (adaptable to higher-than-collaborative speeds) from Universal Robots. The carts are key to meeting demand, taking the plant from one to three shifts a day, freeing 13 employees to transfer to less repetitive, ergonomically safe tasks. Quality is also up via integration with Cognex camera-based machine vision communicating with the carts over Ethernet IP. You want testimonials and metrics? You got ’em — from Paul Baublitz, Coty project manager; Chris Sydorko, owner of systems integrator Sydorko Automation
