Collaborative Robots Bring Next-Gen Automation to Manufacturing
Techman Robot has unveiled its AI Cobot series, a suite of collaborative robots (cobots) that combine a precise robot arm with smart vision and AI to create next-generation automated tools for Industry 4.0.
The company says the series is ready for factory deployment and is designed for several industrial applications including pick-and-place, palletizing, welding, semiconductor and product manufacturing, as well as food service preparation.
“Techman Robot has redefined the future of industry robotics with the introduction of its AI Cobot series that are equipped with a native AI engine, powerful and precise robotic arm and vision system that represents a perfect combination of ‘brain, hands and eyes,’” said Shi-chi Ho, Techman Robot president. “With our all-in-one integrated system and supporting software suite, we lead the industry with ease of integration, accelerating productivity while reinforcing quality, and opening new opportunities.”
It is specifically giving the robots “eyes” through AI Vision that Techman says sets it apart from other industry players, allowing its robots to have a greater understanding of and interaction with their environments, with a greater capacity for interpreting visual data.
The series comprises six different cobots of varying sizes and payloads. All of these can identify and navigate their environments and perform a variety of tasks, including testing equipment, reading results and making appropriate decisions in response.
Techman Robot recently demonstrated its AI Cobot product series capable of 55 pound payloads – an industry first – at the Taiwan Automation Intelligence and Robot Show 2022.
