COVID-19 has created an increase in demand for medical equipment including syringes. Hospitals are increasing orders for syringes because of the influx of more patients requiring care and the inevitable mass immunization of COVID-19 once a vaccine is created and approved. Early estimates suggest that at least 70% of the population will need the vaccine including more than 300 million people in the United States.
Incorporating Cobots into your packaging process can improve packaging efficiency and employee safety.
Cobots, short for collaborative robots, are designed to work alongside humans in shared workspaces. Cobots in packaging are used to make human workers more efficient, enhance performance and become more effective. Unlike robots, cobots usually work with employees, rather than replace them. It's also a safe technology for the employees working alongside cobots because there is no need for cages or closed areas separating the cobots and workers.
