Traditional automation is expensive and inflexible, which takes months or even years to design, develop and deploy. Minor changes may need to be discontinued for several weeks. In addition, the traditional automation needs a lot of space, and can not meet the needs of human-computer security cooperation. For manufacturers who need low cost, flexible deployment and minimal interference, deploying traditional automation systems is too expensive, difficult and time-consuming. Manufacturers in urgent need of revamping their existing production lines are focusing on cooperative robots.

Fine tune the layout and adjust the production line in time

Seat, the Spanish car manufacturer, has been actively promoting intelligent production. In order to meet the current market demand, seat began to produce ventilators. After the deployment of the ur10 cooperative robot, the new assembly line can now manufacture 300 ventilators a day. Ur10 cooperative robot mainly performs quality inspection tasks in the assembly line, which greatly improves the consistency and accuracy compared with manual work. Moreover, ur10 cooperative robot is easy to be integrated into the new assembly line, without major rectification of the existing pattern, and can quickly respond to market demand.

In addition to medical equipment, there is a surge in demand for online shopping to reduce exposure. DCL logistics is a distribution center located in Silicon Valley of the United States. With more and more customers turning to online shopping, e-commerce has grown significantly. The company has deployed the second ur10 cooperative robot on the expanded conveyor system to meet the growing demand of online shopping recently.

Accurate detection, consolidate customer relationship

Adjusting the production line to make new products, speed is on the one hand, quality is more important. Therefore, the quality inspection is essential to ensure the quality of products, in order to live up to the customers.

Youao robot has a mature application in the field of quality inspection.

Koyo electronics industries of Japan has assigned UR3 cooperative robot to the post of touch screen quality inspection, solving the problem of manpower shortage and increasing productivity by 31%. UR3 cooperative robot uses a stylus to touch the screen. When “OK” is displayed, the green light is on, and the product passes; when “ng” is displayed, the red light is on, and there is a continuous prompt tone, so that the staff can find out and take further measures at the first time.

In addition, we have worked closely with our ur + * partners to develop corresponding solutions. Moreover, recently, ur + platform launched a new “plug and play” application suite, which can reduce the repetitive technical evaluation of common applications, not only reduce the project risk and complexity, but also realize rapid deployment, complete quality inspection and other tasks. The q-span workstation suite developed jointly with new scale robotics can be used for QC measurement and inspection, automatic digital caliper measurement and data recording, improving the consistency and repeatability of small parts measurement, and eliminating data input errors.

Flexibility is one of the important driving forces for the rapid development of cooperative robots in the world. In 2018, cooperative robots account for only 3% of global robot spending, but it is the fastest growing part in the field of industrial robots; by 2025, cooperative robots are expected to leap from niche to mainstream, accounting for 34% of global robot spending. In the case that manufacturers are faced with various uncertainties, cooperative robots provide effective solutions to maintain business continuity and innovation, and prepare for future challenges.
