The human aspect of the cobot can also be seen in their function: The cobot does not replace employees, on the contrary, cobot enhances the value of employees by allowing them to increase their skills or to devote themselves to tasks with greater added value, for example, programming the cobot.
The cobot allows companies to reduce the drudgery of the employees’ work. The cobot performs tasks with low added value, difficult and/or unpleasant for its teammate, tasks reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) for its
In order to be able to work next to its human colleagues, the cobot is programmed to stop immediately in case of danger to people in the vicinity. The robot is equipped with a series of sensors to avoid collisions with human workers, as well as safety protocols to stop in case of unexpected contact, avoiding the installation of safety barriers.
Safe cooperation with humans
Thanks to its 6 torque sensors and a counterweight mechanism, the robot guarantees outstanding safety:
- Collision protection
- With their rounded edges, force limits and light weights, collaborative robots are designed for safety
- Optional visual protection (planned for a future launch)
- Precise force control (planned for a future launch)
The use of Lexium Cobot allows you to save 30 to 40% of floor space compared to a traditional robotic cell, and to eliminate safety barriers. It offers a better return on investment thanks to the flexibility of the cobot allowing its integration to multiple projects within the company instead of the execution of a single operating mode as in traditional robotics.
