Cobots briefly explained

Collaborating robots, also called collaborative robots or cobots for short, are robots that work directly next to and with humans without protective fences.

This completely eliminates the need for often extensive safety technology such as fences, light curtains or scanners. Collaborative robots have smaller payloads than traditional robots and are designed for monotonous work that a human usually does by hand.

Cobots briefly explained

Possible applications

The possible applications of collaborative robots are almost unlimited.

Some examples are:

  • Loading and unloading of parts in machines such as CNC milling machines, CNC lathes, grinding machines and other automatic machines
  • pick and place
  • Assembly of subassemblies
  • Screws
  • Packing
  • Quality control
  • Testing, inspection and analysis
  • Welding
  • Bonding
  • Dosing
  • Cutting
  • And many more


The latest generation of collaborative robots are very easy to program. Often a few hours of training are enough for an inexperienced user to program the robot himself. The integrated control, the user-friendly visualization and the reliable technology make the operation enormously easy and flexible.

An integrated control with digital and analog inputs and outputs usually makes the use of additional controls superfluous. Tools, valves, external axes, etc. can be connected directly to the control and integrated into the program. The effort for individual controls is eliminated!

Amortization period

Thanks to the small investment volume compared to conventional robots, the extremely simple operation and the unmatched flexibility, collaborative robots are usually amortized after about half a year. In addition, they can be quickly adapted to new tasks. This is a huge advantage in today's world of rapidly changing tasks, products, markets and even exchange rates.
