Cobots add a number of benefits to screw tightening processes. Screw tightening is a process which wasn’t as widely automated as it is today, with the facilities previously not available, or only available for specific processes and tasks. Cobots, with their reach and payloads more comparable to humans than traditional robots, fill the gap of small to medium volume manufacturers. Like most other robots, Cobots have 6 axis, enabling them to manipulate anywhere within their furthest reach capabilities, making them perfect for unfavourable tasks which may be in hard to reach areas, or require continuous repetitive movement.
The rationale for adopting industrial robots also applies to Cobots, their benefits and advantages see them provide value in areas where industrial robots were unsuitable; Cobots within screw tightening offer benefits of repeatability, and accountability that all screws are tightened.
