Safety Professionals Collaborative Robot (COBOT) Training
The effective implementation and use of Cobots in automated production systems challenges fundamental practices of integration and safeguarding. The aim of this training is to give the participants a fundamental understanding of the required safety factors to be considered in safe Cobot integration.
There are many unanswered questions with this new wave of technology. Questions like what is the maximum speed for a COBOT application? Or, what is the maximum force
allowable? How do I safety validate my application or control the software programming and configuration?There is increasing pressure to accept new technologies which do not offer the traditional safety measures, but now employ ‘inherent’ safety measures, “software related safety functions” and “fence-free” robot cells.
