Collaborative robots are the fastest growing segment in industrial robotics, and for good reason. They’re flexible, easy to program, and, when compared to their “older generation” industrial counterparts, far safer and less expensive (and faster) to deploy. But those who use or want to use cobots need to understand the risks and liability involved, as with any other machine on their factory floor. This webinar will provide insight into cobot safety, looking how cobots are safer than “old” industrial robots; defining terms like “power and force limiting” and “protective stop,” and understanding the importance of risk assessments.
Webinar topics will include:
Basics of human-machine interfaces and collaborative workspaces
Overview of robot safety standards
New speed and separation monitoring techniques that can further improve safety of cobot applications
