Cobots vs. Industrial Robots

Designed for human-robot collaboration, cobots can be a great option for shared automation environments. But, did you know that industrial robots can deliver many of the same benefits at faster speeds and a low cost of ownership?

Why Should You Choose an Industrial Robot?

Fast Cycle Times

Industrial robots perform better in applications that require fast cycle time to maximize part production.

High-Precision Technology

In applications that require high precision movements, an industrial robot with repeatability down to 5 microns is often a better choice.

Simplify Risk Assessment

All robot systems require risk assessments and many applications still require safeguarding, regardless of robot type. Safeguarding, required for all industrial robots, can help decrease risk assessment considerations.

Affordable Price

A widely used, time-tested solution, industrial robots can be a cost-effective alternative to pricey cobots. With a multitude of accessories and safety devices available at an affordable cost, industrial robots offer high convenience at a reasonable price point.

Automation Applications

Epson industrial robots are extremely versatile and provide a wide range of automation possibilities.
