The cobot industrial revolution, a future full of opportunities.
Nowadays, we can say without a doubt that Robots and humans can be co-workers and all thanks to the rise of collaborative robotics. The presence of cobots in the industry is changing production processes because, unlike industrial robots, they are able to work efficiently and safely alongside regular employees in all kinds of tasks.
Cobot arms share the workplace with operators, collaborating and interacting with them. Not only do they not replace human labor, but they also become their bodyguards. These cobot automation process free workers from the most dangerous, repetitive, and heavy tasks, reducing sick leave and possible accidents. In addition, the robots are equipped with sensors capable of detecting human presence, so cobots slow down their speed and adapt. They also stand out for their lightweight, like the pArm cobot that weighs less than 12.2 0 kilos, easy to move to any point in the production chain.
THE NEW NOW, COBOTS ARE KEY
The cobot market growth and automation is an engine that cannot be stopped. Still, the cobot concept (a abreviation for collaborative robot) is not new. In fact, it was born at the end of the 1990s as part of a research project. But it is now, almost a quarter of a century later, when cobot arms are landing in companies, both large and small, to transform the production model and participate in the great Industrial Revolution 4.0.
Definitely Cobots are a transforming tool with a combination of artificial vision and other accessories they are equipped with, which perform a multitude of tasks.

COBOTS IN INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION
Cobots are currently the fastest growing segment of industrial automation. According to data from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), they are expected to increase tenfold to 34% of all industrial robot sales by 2025 in sectors such as automotive, electronics, chemicals, and plastics. The market increasingly demands products that are customized to each customer’s taste, on which Cobot arms are becoming great allies, since one of their main virtues is that they can manufacture a multitude of different parts in short series.
