A new level of collaboration
While robots have long been workhorses on factory production lines, today – at time marked by Industry 4.0 and smart factories – the latest generation of industrial robots is revolutionizing traditional processes. The plus for manufactures worldwide: increased productivity and enhanced cost optimization. A new iteration even works alongside humans in factories as collaborative robotics, also called cobots, where they assist with manufacturing processes and boost output quality thanks to their highly accurate work.
Unlike classic industrial robots, cobots work outside the limitation of a safety cell in direct interaction with real people. By taking over accident-prone tasks, they help make plants a safer place for people to work. But achieving all this requires certain design features. For instance, collaborative robots require a higher number of axes for full freedom of movement. Moreover, they are subject to high safety requirements to ensure humans working nearby stay out of harm’s way.
In a nutshell, today’s successful industrial robot and cobot designs require:
- High power density to reduce the size of the control box
- A high level of accuracy, integration and efficiency
- Safety management solutions in line with current norms
- Various topologies for axes, joints and motors
- Security features that protect intellectual property from counterfeiting
By turning to Infineon, you can achieve all this and more with your traditional, industrial robots and collaborative robot designs.
