Robots are used extensively in manufacturing and have become an important element of the production process. Companies are using robots to improve productivity and product quality and reduce costs. When manufacturers bring a robot into a work space, it is important for workers to know not only how to operate the robot, but also how to work safely around it. Many robots used in manufacturing are able to generate forces high enough to severely injure or kill a person if operated without the necessary risk controls.
This presentation will explain the basics of robot safeguarding, and some of the latest applications the manufacturing industry has introduced to improve robot safety.
