Hanwha Techwin has released an industrial collaborative robot for the first time in Korea

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiryNew markets for industrial collaborative robots have been steadily growing, as it is expected that the market for industrial collaborative robots, compared to the existing industrial robot market, will be the driving force to lead the growth of the industrial robot market, which is saturated in an early stage.

Regarding the already released industrial collaborative robots of global companies, there are UR3, UR5 and UR10 from Universal Robots, Baxter and Sawyer from Rethink Robotics Baxter, LBR iiwa from KUKA, Yumi from ABB, P-Rob from F7P Robotics and CR-35iA from Fanuc.

In March this year, Hanwha Techwin entered this market by releasing HCR-5, an industrial collaborative robot, for the first time in Korea. More companies are directly developing and implementing marketing by importing industrial collaborative robots of overseas brands by establishing a robot business department.

According to the definition by the ISO International Standards, the collaborative robot is an industrial robot fulfilling the collaborative operation conditions for humans and robots to work together in the same workspace. This is the definition that is strictly distinguished from cooperation among robots.

As in the definition of international standards, robots that can collaborate with humans should be obligatorily verified for their safety. Collaborative robots can work with humans side-by-side without a safety fence, according to the International Safety Technology Standard (ISO/TS 15066). These robots should be designed in such a way that the safety of humans should be secured if a robot makes contact with or collides with a human when the robot is actually operating.

In 2017, the Motion Control & Machine Vision Show, held in Hall 7 & 8 of the 2nd Exhibition Center of KINTEX located in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do, from April 25 to April 27, a special corner for collaborative robots was established. Its popularity among visitors proved the high interest in collaborative robots.

In the special pavilion, people could examine industrial collaborative robots such as duAro from Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. of Japan, UR series from Universal Robot exhibited by Visionsemicon Co., Ltd., and OUR-I (Open Unit Robot) from Smokie Robotics of the USA, exhibited by EOTech Co., Ltd.
