Facts and Knowledge on Welding

What is a collaborative robot, or cobot?

According to Wikipedia, a cobot, or collaborative robot, is a robot intended for direct human-robot interaction within a shared space, or where humans and robots are in close proximity. Cobots can’t swing with a speed or force that can hurt you, so they’re safer. In other words, a cobot may just be your new best friend on the production line.
According to experts, a welding cobot can increase productivity 2X to 4X over a human. But here’s the great part: cobots get the simple, boring repetitive jobs. The fact is that cobots are not smarter than a human, so humans get the challenging welding tasks.

Also, let’s face it: the type of people who become welders don’t find inserting Tab A into Slot B and making the same 2” fillet weld 100 times a challenging task. So, give the cobot the boring work.

Cobots can get you into the welding industry while you hone your welding skills. You can learn to run a cobot in just a few hours, where it will take you hundreds of hours to master a welding process. By running a cobot, your work makes a big impact on the bottom line, plus you’re not just learning about welding, you’re growing your skill sets and opening new possibilities in your career.
