Cobots and Industry 4.0


Cobots or Collaborative robots were created 10 years ago, in Odense, Denmark. As our society evolved, it was a dire need to develop goods and products faster, cheaper and in a safe manner. This brought cobots and industries together. This amalgamation of cobots and industries lead to increased productivity, improved site efficiency, improved operator health, all for higher value-added production.

Moreover, cobotics isn’t limited to the manufacturing industry alone. A cobot can be a driver, a cook, a painter,or a fellow player. Let’s find out how cobots can empower various industries and as far as global competitiveness of the Indian manufacturing sector is concerned, Industry 4.0 is the way to go.
