Collaborative Robots

At Solara Automation, we have extensive experience integrating cobots with our custom automated equipment to create solutions that have never been achieved. Our experience ranges from individual cobot integration to multiple cobots as part of a multi station automation system. If you have never heard the term "cobot" it refers to robots intended for direct human robot interaction within a shared space, or where humans and robots are in close proximity. Cobot applications contrast with traditional industrial robot applications in which robots are isolated from human contact. Solara Automation has extensive experience integrating cobots utilizing different manufactures and a wide variety of payloads.

Cobots are revolutionizing manufacturing (and other markets). They are becoming smarter, faster and cheaper. Manufacturers are using cobots in a host of applications, not only to reduce cost of goods, but also to solve safety and human factors concerns, enable the inspection of parts much faster and cheaper than human capability, and much more. Contact Solara Automation today to start a conversation with us on your next automation improvement project.
