Elevate quality and boost efficiency with automated visual quality inspection
COLLABORATIVE ROBOTS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS
The cobot solutions created in Konica Minolta’s Solutions Development Centre are fitted with high-end AI, Machine Vision, and Hyperspectral imaging technologies depending on each customer’s quality assurance and production requirements. Stepping on our successful automation projects, we have a proven track record of improving manufacturing workflows, quality control, and productivity.
CoboSense is a cutting-edge collaborative robotic solution that automates visual quality inspection processes such as scratch, mar, and abrasion resistance tests. This modular and highly flexible system ensures a safe and cooperative environment, allowing testers to redirect their time and efforts towards more value-generating tasks, thereby improving work satisfaction and enhancing operational efficiency.
Equipped with a Specim hyperspectral camera and SpecimCUBE data processing platform, CoboSense (CoboSpecim) emerges as a powerful tool for inspecting surface quality beyond the boundaries of human perception. Whether it is a high-mix one-task production or simple mass testing, CoboSpecim will help you unlock the automated manufacturing of the future.
FORXAI Cobot combines Quality Assurance and Pick & Place capabilities with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Vision technology. Its scalable design makes it a perfect assistant for a wide range of workflows: quality control for incoming products, sorting and organizing, assembly and bin picking, packaging, de/palletizing, material handling, and other specialized processes.
CoboVox is a voice programming and control application for cobots. It’s compatible with most end effectors and can be used for a variety of operations. Designed for non-experts, it allows intuitive, hands-free human-robot communication. Through simple voice commands, users can cut programming time by up to 50% compared to conventional methods. The result is reduced cobot idle time and maximized productivity.
ADVANTAGES OF COBOT AUTOMATION
Collaborative robots (cobots) are essential in automating complex manufacturing tasks. They effortlessly adjust to diverse environments, enhancing efficiency, safety, and innovation. By collaboratively navigating their automated co-workers, employees can focus on more cognitive work aspects, while cobots take over the repetitive tasks.
KEY BENEFITS OF USING COBOTS
- More affordable than industrial robots
- Help overcome workforce and skills gaps
- Adaptable to changing production volumes
- Perform mundane tasks around the clock
- Achieve ROI in less than 12 months
- Keep the IP knowledge within the company
