While the automotive industry was one of the first industries to automate its factories, today’s OEMs and tier suppliers still have employees managing far too many manual tasks. That can lead to bored workers, inconsistent quality and workplace injuries. Now, collaborative robots, or cobots, are promising to take over many of those tasks. Small, flexible and easy to program, cobots are the fastest growing segment in industrial automation. This presentation will help manufacturers seeking to learn how cobots are being used in automotive assembly. The presentation will include examples of cobots performing machine tending, screwdriving, welding, painting and inspection tasks.
