Industrial Robot V The Collaborative Robot (Cobot)

Industrial robots are mechanical devices that carry out duties in dangerous and hard-to-reach places. E.G. the metalworking or automotive industries, amongst many more. Furthermore, industrial robots come in a broad range of shapes and sizes. So they are able to service a multitude of manufacturing facilities. While work environments constrain industrial robots along with the close constitution, there is no such issue faced with collaborative robots. Hence the evolution of the cobot.

The Emergence of the Cobot

The term “cobot” was created due to the collaborative nature of the robot. In addition, this also helps distinguish between the cobot and robots. Because it is collaborative, it cooperates with people on tasks like palletising or welding. Unquestionably they are inherently safe, with an advanced sensing ability to detect their environment, avoid collisions, and improve human safety.


Because there are no fences around it, operators can work safely close to it, unlike with industrial robots. So it then becomes possible to control it manually or collaborate with another person. Most important, the FANUC range is well known,  as being simple to use.

FANUC Cobot (Collaborative Robot Series by FANUC)

The FANUC cobot range offers MORE payload and MORE reach choices than any other cobot brand with 8 models available. Ranging from 4-35 kg in payload and 550 to 1813 mm in reach. In addition to automating entire assembly lines, these collaborative robots keep the health and safety of your workers by taking over intense, repetitive tasks and lifting upto 35 kg. Undoubtedly, the future is now a reality, thanks to FANUC collaborative robots.
