METHODOLOGY FOR COBOTS IMPLEMENTATION INTO THE ASSEMBLY APPLICATIONS

Abstract

The affordability and ease of programming of collaborative robots (cobots) is a critical factor in increasing their widespread use in many automated processes (assembly processes included). Therefore, the task of this article is to offer a suitable methodological approach to the design of a collaborative application concerning the necessary flexibility wherever a significant change or reconfiguration of the physical production environment is not required. The final solution is tested on the example of a collaborative assembly application on a manufactured object, taking into account the division of tasks between the operator and the collaborative robot. The simulation and initial testing results proved not only the feasibility and suitability of the methodology but also a significant shortening of the assembly cycle and the ability to automate the selected assembly operation.
