Nuclear Industry

Imagine a world without safety barriers; a world in which humans work side by side with robots safely. In this world, the robots do all the strenuous repetitive work, freeing us up to use our brains and manual dexterity to do the lighter, more intricate jobs.

A collaborative robot, or cobot, is built to work safely alongside people to automate processes in factories or for other purposes. In the industrial world, cobots are great assistants to operators whose value is in the intricate work on the product.

Advanced technologies have allowed engineers and programmers to create these robots so they can react to human interaction while ensuring people’s safety. This is possible due to safety features, such as sensors, lightweight materials, rounded edges, and limited speed and force.

The collaborative robots can be used to lift objects, execute repetitive and dangerous handling tasks, assemble workpieces, and collaborate with several other manufacturing processes within various industries. Discover how automation can help your business.

BOS Cobot Solutions

BOS has what it takes to integrate customized solutions with collaborative robots for your specific needs. In fact, we were the first integrator to successfully install a FANUC cobot in Ontario. Below are a couple of examples of where this technology has helped manufacturers.

Quality Control Assistant Robot

Collaborative Robots (cobots) for Quality Control Assistance

Collaborative robots can be a great asset in following the operations of the human to check and assure the quality of the operations. Arm your cobot with a camera, laser sensors, electrical test equipment, and probes to efficiently and safely test the parts in the same spot it was assembled with an operator.

Preventing the risk of repetitive strain injuries amongst assembly line workers while improving productivity is a great reason to consider collaborative robots. Cobots can lift and position components for you, or provide a smart and adaptable lift assist when guided by the operator for part of the sequence while automating the rest of the sequence.
