What to consider when automating production processes with robots
Anyone planning to move towards a smart factory needs to choose carefully when considering possible robotic solutions. Should it be an industrial robot or a collaborative robot (cobot)? The answer will depend on your specific needs. The World Robotics 2020 Industrial Robots Report has stated an (more...)
Automating the plastics industry
One of the biggest challenges for robotics manufacturers is the perception that the technology is here to take the jobs of humans – but that is simply not the case. Unfortunately, the notion that automation poses a threat to jobs often overshadows the potential benefits of investing in the (more...)
Plastic versus metal cobot clamps
In this latest video from Igus, you can see the comparison between the assembly time of an Igus plastic cobot clamp and the metal version. The metal clamp can sometimes be the better option when there is a faster motion, so Igus offers both options. (more...)
