Collaborative Robots

Collaborative robots – or cobots – work alongside humans. These lightweight, easy to program robotic arms enable companies of all sizes to implement automation at a low cost and without technical expertise. With flexible architecture, cobots can be trained to perform endless applications and break the stigma of traditional robots that are programmed to only do one thing.

Autonomous Mobile Robots

Enabled by collaborative technologies, autonomous mobile robots allow users to quickly and cost-effectively manage internal logistics, without the need for infrastructure modifications. These next-generation robots address low, mid and high payload material handling tasks for manufacturing, warehousing and distribution operations. They offer easy deployment, improved safety, and increased efficiency of in-house logistics.

Motion Control Software for Robots

Proprietary software simplifies the programming of complex robotic systems. Hardware and operating system agnostic, it uses a general dynamics model that can represent any robotic configuration. The software is used across a variety of industries and applications to control and simulate robotic motions in real-time.

Automation, Robots and Jobs

Work continuously evolves. From elevator operators and toll both collectors to bankers, financial analysts and marketing specialists – technology forces positive change. A roofer’s job becomes easier and more productive when equipped with a nail gun instead of using a hammer and nails. A mechanic becomes more productive when using electronic diagnostic tools. An assembly worker’s job is safer when robots move the heavy packages. These are small automation solutions that significantly increase productivity and performance for both employers and employees.

There’s no denying that automation will change the workforce. However, this is not a man vs. machine fight. In manufacturing, robots are not here to replace people – they’re here to work with people and create new opportunities. We are on the verge of tapping into the next level of the automation economy – with unprecedented value stemming from man AND machine collaboration, not one or the other.

Advanced automation solutions, like collaborative robots and autonomous mobile robots, fill labor gaps by automating tedious and repetitive tasks. This is especially beneficial for the dangerous, dull and dirty tasks that few humans want to take on, such as screw driving, low-value transportation, palletizing or machine tending. Even more beneficial, when humans are freed from monotonous work, they have more time for value-orientated and human-driven activities, like product innovation, lean improvements and creative problem-solving.

Automation enables the economy to grow and remain competitive – which ultimately leads to employment growth, financial stability and employee retention. Teradyne’s Industrial Automation solutions are safe, reliable and easy to deploy and equip companies of all sizes, everywhere to tap into the immense benefits of automation.
