Hanwha Robotics and elliTek, Inc. Partnership to Help United States Manufacturers Safely Reopen
Collaborative Robots Combined with Mechanical and Industrial IoT Expertise Creates Solution to Severe Labor Shortages & Health & Safety Concerns in Post-Pandemic World While Increasing Production
By: elliTek, Inc.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced manufacturers to stop or reduce production. This disruption was in full display last year as seen on empty grocery and store shelves, not to mention the loss of lives and jobs. elliTek's engineers have been working tirelessly to find cost-effective solutions to help manufacturers safely reopen their facilities and also address severe labor shortages. Hanwha's team vigorously developed advanced cobots that combined Hanwha's AI technology with its mobility capabilities.
"Adding automated robotic systems to a factory is an investment that has a quick return," said Brandon Ellis, president of elliTek. "Additionally, collaborative robots can limit the number of people on a production line to ensure appropriate distancing requirements are being met & also may provide relief for those experiencing labor shortage situations."
Cobots can perform multiple tasks, so employees can focus on value-added duties. Cobots can help manufacturers improve quality, cut operational costs, offer flexible switch-over between processes, and improve dangerous work conditions. elliTek's pre-engineered, turn-key robotic workcells are engineered to allow the robots to operate at their full capacity and speed and are ready for quick installation.
Hanwha's HCR Advanced Collaborative Robots can be applied immediately without changing the existing workspace. They are easy to control and flexible in reacting to changes in the production layout. Hanwha's cobots not only automate manual work, but the HCR Advanced Series also provides a safer work environment.
Furthermore, Hanwha's new advanced cobot models allow users the ability to easily attach torque sensors and grippers without the need to attach additional cables. The improved speed, consistency, and accuracy of the HCR Advanced Series offer increased productivity for industries such as automotive, electronics, food, and pharmaceutical to name a few.
