Operators at KAM Plastics Corp. are getting used to their newest team member, Joey the Cobot. See the story here.
KAM Plastics has added a new collaborative robot that works safely with people to help with the redundant tasks, such as loading a machine over and over. One of the advantages of cobots is it can work side by side with people without any guarding. See the full story here.

Potential problems are identified and avoided well in advance, saving both time and money.
