What is Cobot Welding?
Cobot welding comes from the English words: Colloborative Robot(s). As the name suggests, they are literally: collaborating robots. Man and machine work together.
The difference mainly lies in the fact that a traditional industrial robot continues until the assignment is completed. It is perilous to interrupt this process. That is different with Cobots. The difference is that the cobot stops when it unexpectedly hits something. This allows an employee to take action after which the process continues.
