The steep rise of interest in collaborative robots applied to industrial tasks is fallout from the emergence of Industry 4.0 in most industrialized countries. Workcells with both human workers and robots employed together extend the field of use of robotics to medium and small series productions. In a collaborative workplace, robots and humans can exploit their mutual skills and strengths to the best effect. With the goal of supporting collaborative robotics, this chapter points out several issues that may arise by introducing robots in manual production. This chapter’s statement is that the success of collaborative workcells in manufacturing relies on dedicated and accurate design activities and should not be approached by the mere addition of a robot to the existing workplace.

Abstract

The steep rise of interest in collaborative robots applied to industrial tasks is fallout from the emergence of Industry 4.0 in most industrialized countries. Workcells with both human workers and robots employed together extend the field of use of robotics to medium and small series productions. In a collaborative workplace, robots and humans can exploit their mutual skills and strengths to the best effect. With the goal of supporting collaborative robotics, this chapter points out several issues that may arise by introducing robots in manual production. This chapter’s statement is that the success of collaborative workcells in manufacturing relies on dedicated and accurate design activities and should not be approached by the mere addition of a robot to the existing workplace.
