Ways Cobots are Disrupting Automotive Manufacturing

Auto Tech Outlook | Monday, May 02, 2022

Cobots automate the monotonous, risky, or simplest elements of the production process, leaving people to undertake more difficult, creative activities while the robots are operated and maintained.

Fremont, CA: Collaborative robots are reshaping the automobile sector by increasing efficiency, production, and quality. Collaborative robots, often known as "cobots," are distinct from conventional robotic process automation.

These robots aren't intended to completely replace human employees' particular abilities and skills. But on the other hand, Cobots are disrupting automobile production by providing various benefits to firms.

Cobots are getting employed in automobile production plants for a few specific functions.


Welding cobots can do spot & arc welding on their own. These robots are a tremendous tool in the automobile industry since they can conduct a nearly faultless weld endless times and with few faults. It has a couple of advantages over human welders. Because there is no chance of it getting burned, the cobot can operate more quickly and safely. The computer precision and regularity of robot-generated welds can also help with quality control.


Cobots are often used in manufacturing to automate sections of the assembling process. For example, they could lift and position a large automobile roof or screw-in bolts. Many processes in the assembly process are very repetitive. Thus robots are better suited to them rather than humans. For this purpose, robotic arms with specific end-of-arm tooling get frequently employed.

Painting and Coating

Robots are ideal for accelerating the painting and coating procedures on big objects such as automobiles. For example, it is crucial to apply even, consistent primers, paints, polishes, and other surface treatments to an automobile. Using such a robot for this activity guarantees that the job is completed fast without sacrificing quality.

Quality Assurance

Robot vision is a particularly beneficial invention in automobile robots. This employs cameras and sensors to allow robots to "see" their surroundings. Cobots with these capabilities can conduct sections of the manufacturing process more accurately and autonomously scan items for faults. Of course, scanning for faults and quality assurance will necessitate picture analysis by an AI system, but modern technology allows for the integration of AI with robotic systems.
