All You Need to Know to Perform a Risk Assessment

When introducing a robot on a shop floor, there are many things to think about. The robot itself, the end-effector, the process, the sensors and how to automate all of this together. Most of the time the integration is done to perform a certain task and the safety aspect is often let aside. Since the actual robot process is taking a lot of time, we have solved a part of the safety aspect for you. In fact, we have built a complete ‘safety kit’ to give you all the resources to build and understand your own risk assessment for collaborative robots.
