The podcast series “Automation World Gets Your Questions Answered,” was started in 2019. It connects Automation World subscribers with industry experts to get the answers to many questions on machine automation, Industry 4.0/networking, safety, and new technologies.
In October 2023, our tec.nicum Engineering Services manager, Devin Murray, appeared on the podcast with the topic: Do Collaborative Robots Need Safety Risk Assessments?
In this episode Devin defined what a collaborative robot (cobot) is, current standards for cobot safety, the hazards around cobots, the need for risk assessment of the cobot application, and several methods to make cobots safer.
