Flextur has announced the launch of its robotic and cobot workstations, available as a standard solution or a custom engineered solution.
Robots and cobots are becoming more and more popular in manufacturing facilities as companies adopt automation and Industry 4.0 technologies. Robotic/cobot technology integration alleviates challenges such as labour and skill shortages and replaces humans in mundane or repetitive tasks allowing them to be available for higher-value activities. Additionally, robots and cobots perform tasks faster and with greater strength, accuracy, and data capabilities.
To keep up with the increased production, organizations must utilize lean methodologies to create greater efficiencies and ensure consistent throughput when working with robots and cobots. This is especially important with cobots. Workstations should be set up with all of the proper tools and materials within reach to maintain efficiency and keep up with the cobot’s output.
“This new launch adds to the versatility of Flextur workstations. Our tables and carts are durable and stable enough to hold any robotic arm while also providing the opportunity to create a lean/5S workstation. Flextur is here to help our customers achieve maximum efficiency, greater production and throughput, and solve labor and skill shortages,” says Pioneer Corp CEO Daniel Wengerd.
Flextur partners with robotic and cobot manufacturers to develop workstations with existing robot systems and to create cobot stations with a Flextur table or cart to anchor the cobot arm. Some of Flextur’s current automation partners are Yaskawa, OTC, KC Robotics, as well as many others.
