Increasing need for collaborative robots
Speaking about Schunk's collaborative robot solutions in the live broadcast, Schunk Turkey Automation Department Sales Manager Egemen Zengin said, “Collaborative robots appear as robotic systems that work in cooperation with humans. In practice, it can be used as an aid to people and can perform two different tasks at the same time and in the same environment. In some conditions, full automation of production and assembly lines is not an economical solution, so collaborative robots are more needed. With collaborative robots, the need for faster and easier installation of systems arose. As Schunk, we introduced collaborative holder and plug-and-play product groups to the market. Schunk's collaborative gripper and plug-and-play product lines can also be directly applied to robots from different robot manufacturers. As the first manufacturer of this product group in the world, we offer a wide range of standard products to various collaborative robots and light robots.”
