Cobots are collaborative robots that can help humans in a variety of applications. The growth of these robotics gems stalled with the pandemic but is already picking up steam with very attractive future prospects.
In fact, according to some research, the cobot market will grow at a compound annual rate of 43.4% from 2021 to 2027, when it will reach a value of $10.5 billion. By the end of 2021, a value of 1.2 billion is already expected.
The cobot industry with loads up to 5 kg is set to dominate the market until 2027: this is because they are less expensive and less bulky machines, as well as being easier for end customers to integrate and program. Their versatility is proverbial and they are ideal for ensuring safety in the workplace.
It seems that the industry of preference is automotive because cobots can safely move, weld, assemble, paint and handle, protecting operators from unhealthy work environments, but their ease of use makes them suitable for so many other fields.
We already talked about some applications of vacuum to collaborative robots here on the blog. Vuototecnica has always been the ideal partner for the realization of gripping hands of cobots as it can guarantee two fundamental characteristics:
- The lightness of gripping hands and of components for the creation of vacuum (very important when dealing with cobots).
- Flexibility on multiple objects and different tasks, without always having to change the gripping hand.
Moreover, with Vuototecnica, it is always possible to create ad hoc gripping hands capable of wrapping even the objects to be manipulated. The 3D printer also creates single pieces, based on application and customer needs, to have cobots at the peak of their performance.
