Rethink Robotics, April 13, 2018 – For plastics manufacturers, reducing costs and improving quality is a driving force for the increased use of robotic automation in their operations. The good news is that technological innovation has transformed robots, making it possible for plastics manufacturers to put these solutions to work on tasks and in places that, until now, were out of the reach of traditional robots.
Oh, the Places Cobots Can Go
Smart, collaborative robots – or cobots – give plastics manufacturers more opportunities to automate factory production. Safe enough to work alongside people, smart enough to do more than a single task and easy enough to train without a programmer, cobots are differentiated by a number of technical advances that support the unique needs of this sector.
