Men-Robot-Collaboration: A new generation of robots is ready for the market

MESSE MÜNCHEN presents AUTOMATICA MUNICH 2016 – International Trade Fair for Automation and Mechatronics

Collaborating robots are paving a revolutionary new way for SMEs to automate their production on an optimum technical level and consequently secure their competitive position while cutting costs. These COBOTS collaborate as assistants hand-in-hand with workers. Human-robot teams aim to combine the strengths of human resources with the technical capabilities of robots. Manufacturers are taking different approaches in developing their collaborative robots. While one faction, including ABB​, Kula​, University Robots​, Yaskawa​ and Co. relies on special machines for MRC, Stäubli​​ and Fanuc​ design their standard robots for MRC applications. A big advantage for AUTOMATICA visitors: All major robot manufacturers are represented at the trade fair in Munich from June 21 to 24, which enables a direct comparison of these solutions.
