Discover the innovative power of robotics to optimize your production processes.
In the field of robotics, one must distinguish between the classic industrial robot and a collaborative robot, also called a cobot.
The "normal" robot is designed to replace human labor. It implements its activities rigidly, fenced in so as not to endanger bystanders.
The cobot is used to work together with humans and relieve them of repetitive, monotonous work steps.
Schmachtl is a partner of the cobot world market leader Universal Robots.
In addition, Schmachtl offers many complementary products and services related to robotics.
A naked robot looks very good, but it can't really help your company yet. The selection of the appropriate grippers, end effectors, cameras or other should be well considered and in any case determined by robot experts. The design of an economical safety concept is also a top priority, especially when purchasing a classic robot. Our experts at Schmachtl can take care of all this for you.
Proof of Concept
Accessory deployment support
The handling of cobots is characterized by a user-friendly simplicity. Nevertheless, it has to be learned. After a short training, however, your employees will already become experts - with our support.

Collaboration means working together. The degree to which this is pronounced between humans and robots can be divided into four different levels: Spatial separation, coexistence, cooperation and finally collaboration. Here you can find out how these differ in their areas of application and what role cycle speed and safety play.
How to teach your cobot to palletize
Palletizing is a relatively simple application for which few things are better suited than the tireless arm of a cobot. Conveying single workpieces to entire carton boxes onto a pallet falls under this application.
