Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How Easy Is It To Teach The OB7 Family?

Easy, Just “show” the OB7 Family Cobot the task. It learns and repeats it.

Please contact us to provide a private demonstration and tour.

How Can I Move My OB7 Family Cobot From One Application To Another?

When an OB7 Family Cobot is on it’s stand, it can easily be moved from one job to another. Each time you teach your OB7 Family Cobot it learns and remembers the task for repetitive use. Ask us about our cloud backup package.

How Do I Purchase An OB7 Family Robot?

Please contact us to learn about purchasing, financing or rental options. We will be sure to get you everything you need to get your OB7 Family Cobot working for your business.

Are The Robot Hands or Grippers Interchangeable?

Yes. Please contact us regarding setting up the right gripper for each of your applications.

How Safe Is It To Work Alongside An OB7 Family Cobot?

The OB7 Family Cobot is safe because it has built in safety sensors. If the robot bumps into you it stops. This feature can also be used “on purpose” to inspect something. To put your OB7 Family Cobot back to work, simply give it a tap.

What Are The Benefits Of Having A 7-Axis Robot vs 6-Axis?

The “7” means that the robot has 7 joints. Most collaborative robots have only 6 joints or less. Having 7 joints or 7 axis points or 7 DOF (degrees of freedom) means that the robot can reach around something. For example, if your robot is operating a machine and it only has 6 joints, then you have to put the robot directly in front the work, which leaves limited room for a person to work alongside it.

How Much Weight Can It Lift?

We have Cobots that can lift up to 26lbs.

How Easy Is It To Program The OB7 Family Robot?

It is very easy. Actually, there is NO programming required. The robot “learns” to do jobs from you. Simply show the robot what to do and it remembers. Specifics like the number of parts to put in a box, or the number of stacks to make are entered on the robots wired keypad.

Get up and running with your new Cobot on day 1. Produce more efficiently by easily automating your repetitive tasks.

Every part we produce needs to be 100% functionally tested. The OB7 can now be used to press these buttons, allowing the Assembly Technicians to focus on other value added operations.

Working "lights out" with OB7 allows us to go home and return the next morning with a job completed, ready to start the next. OB7 has saved us significant time and money, while increasing quality and precision.

Marvin Rodriguez
Vice President | True Precision Machining

We have not let go of any employees and our production has increased. We have big plans for OB7, not just on our mills but on our lathes as well.

Timo Lunceford
General Manager | Swiss Productions

The flexibility really showed when we got it, set it up, and started playing around with it. Our initial idea took a quick right turn and we ended up using OB7 for something else – a new turnkey solution, actually.
