Collaborative Robots

Collaborative robots open up new possibilities in industrial applications, since humans and robots can work directly next to each other. In our one-day workshop "Collaborative Robotics" with the participation of robotic manufacturers Bosch and KUKA, the participants learned a lot about e.g. areas of application, safety requirements, and risk analysis, and programming of collaborative robots.

After some presentations, practise followed. The participants took on small tasks to get a feeling for the programming effort. The safety devices were tested. The measuring technology for hazard assessment was presented. The participants were given an intensive impression of whether and where and how collaborative robots can be useful for their company.
