Ambrell Corp. introduced what it claims is the world’s first induction heating cobot at IMTS in Chicago. A collaborative robot, or cobot, is a programmable machine that performs a variety of light industrial tasks, usually repetitive, and interacts safely and efficiently as it works hand-in-hand with humans in a shared process. Using cobot technology, Ambrell has developed a solution designed specifically to maximize manufacturing throughput. Known as MAX™ by Ambrell, the cobot is integrated into the induction heating process for optimized production flow, increased yields and greater uniformity.
