Innovation in Action: Cobots Transforming the Injection Molding Industry

Great operators are often wasted on repetitive manufacturing processes, where most of their time is spent on mundane tasks instead of work that requires more "brainpower" and finesse. If operators are being forced to act like a machine doing the same thing over and over again, why not get an actual machine to do it? That’s the idea behind automation and using collaborative robots, known as cobots, on the manufacturing floor.
