Industrial robots, cobots

Increase productivity on production lines.

Today’s global market is highly competitive and it is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve a high quality product or service while reducing costs. Therefore, more and more companies are choosing to use automation in the form of industrial robots. Thanks to them, the efficiency of production processes is increased, and it is possible to combine production stages by replacing, for example, several devices with a robot.

The basic condition for the application of automation in the production process is its repeatability. Robots will also have applications in replacing people when they work in dangerous or uncomfortable environments (smoke, dust, high temperature). The replacement of people in such working conditions by industrial robots will increase the level of safety in the plant.


Performing a cobot force measurement is essential to ensure that the robot is operating with a force that will not harm the operator in the event of a collision. This is one of the key safety requirements at the plant. The 2016 ISO/TS 15066 technical specification details the acceptable values of cobot pressure on different parts of the human body taking into account the pain threshold separately for each of the listed 29 areas on the body.

We measure the force of the cobot in our company according to the technical specification ISO/TS 15066. It is dedicated to collaborative robots and includes tables about the acceptable forces the robot can work with. A special measuring device is used to verify that the actual forces are correct.

After the measurement, a report is produced that provides information regarding the measured force and whether it is within the range specified in ISO/TS 15066.


Cobot from co-robot – collaborative robots.

The first work on collaborative robots took place in the 1990s. They were started by two scientists from Northwestern University, J. Edward Colgate and Michael Peshkin. Originally, cobots were treated as autonomous units, only in later years did the function of cooperating with humans become more important.

We do the cobot force measurement in our company according to the ISO/TS 15066 technical specification, which is dedicated to collaborative robots and includes tables about the allowable forces a robot can work with. The special measuring device is used to verify that the actual forces are correct.

After the measurement, a report is produced that provides information regarding the measured force and whether it is within the range specified in ISO/TS 15066.

The family of collaborative robots provides greater efficiency in cooperation with humans, relieving them of dangerous, difficult, highly repetitive tasks.

Whether a robot or cobot is better suited for a production line is determined by the function it is to perform, including the speed and volume of production it should achieve.

The selection of the right cobot is closely related to the lifting capacity of the unit, cobots are used in situations where low lifting capacity is required, for example, handling small parts or inspection tasks.

Collaborative robots are designed with best-in-class safety features.

Cobots can be a financially accessible investment for small and medium-sized enterprises.


It is increasingly difficult to imagine a modern Industry 4.0 enterprise without modern solutions, one of which is the robotization of the manufacturing process.

Unlike cobots, which share the same workspace with humans, robots need to be gated due to their high lifting forces and potential danger to workers.

Industrial robots, which already not only “see” through integrated vision systems, but also “feel” by processing signals from various types of embedded sensors, are finding increasing use in modern production lines and plants. Mass production on a global scale now necessitates the implementation of highly complex and sophisticated control systems that integrate robots into entire production systems.

A unique feature of robots is that they can be used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the right program will allow it to work even in case of a power outage. Additional advantages include increased precision and improved product quality.

Examples of robot applications:

In addition, enriching the manufacturing process with vision systems, for example, allows robots to be even more versatile.

ABB, a pioneer in the robotics and automation market, offers the broadest portfolio of robots.


Robotization of production processes is more than attaching another machine to an existing machine park. The robotics solutions offering by our company are the result of knowledge and experience in various branches of industrial automation, which we have been dealing with since 1994.

The success of our solutions is influenced by the reliability and experience of AUTOMATECH specialists, based on a good relationship with the customer.

We take an individual approach to each order. Getting to know the needs and capabilities of your company, we will carefully analyze and present solutions, advise in making optimal decisions. We use products of renowned global manufacturers in our applications, we guarantee the highest quality equipment, with a warranty of up to 10 years. In addition, we offer a continuation of cooperation by offering: technical support, inspections, maintenance and training, to ensure uninterrupted operation of systems with maximum efficiency.
