Human-robot collaboration opens up new possibilities for efficient, flexible and optimized production. Conflicting market requirements have to be taken into account such as increased depth of customization amid shortening product lifecycles. Cooperation and collaboration between humans and robots can create far-reaching potential under these circumstances. Both resources are making optimal use of their unique possibilities, creating new jobs for the future as a result.
Zimmer grippers meet the requirements of protection principles in accordance with ISO/TS 15066, including patented and BG-certified safety gripper jaws.
