Ball Screws – an answer to safe and efficient motion for cobots
29 November 2019
Cobots are increasingly used in large-scale production applications that involve continuous lifting operations but still require a human touch. While cobots have been in use for at least a decade and continue to grow, applications have been limited by the gearing systems that control motion.
A French cobot maker, however, has developed a solution that uses ball screw and cable actuators instead of gears, setting a new benchmark for cobot efficiency and safety.
“While researching applications for collaborative robots, I saw automation in general was making great strides, but many manual jobs – like sanding – had not evolved for thirty years or so. This got me interested in developing technology that would assist in, but not replace, functions that benefitted from human participation,” said Yvan M. Measson, CEO of cobots producer – ISYBOT.
