Case Studies - Collaborative Robots

Collaborative industrial robots are designed to perform tasks in collaboration with workers in industrial sectors.

Jun 16, 2021 Australia-based Designed Mouldings is an injection moulding specialist, producing plastic caps and seals for customers in the packaging industry. With COVID-19 disruptions to global supply chains, companies in Australia turned to local manufacturers like Designed Mouldings for their production.

Aug 04, 2020 In order to address the safety concerns of the industrial robots in Qisda’s human-robot collaboration manufacturing line, Touché Solutions provided a complete HRC safety solution – T-Skin. T-Skin can reduce the risk of collisions between humans and robots by its “contact-stop” feature.

Mar 05, 2020 A high degree of automation – supported by elements of Industrie 4.0: component machining processes at KUKA provide insight into future-oriented production processes.

Dec 04, 2018 Plastic component manufacturer Weiss Kunststoffverarbeitung uses collaborative robots to assemble complex components containing metallic parts as well as plastic parts moulded by Weiss. Workers place some of the parts into a fixture, then the robot inserts additional parts, and places the assembled valve in a device for pressure testing.

Dec 04, 2018 Force-feedback technology in cobots enables the automation of applications such as polishing that require fine-tuning of applied pressure. Paradigm, a manufacturer of high-performance loud speakers and subwoofers achieved a 50% productivity increase with a collaborative robot working alongside an employee to polish and buff lacquered speaker cabinets.
