Robots Don’t Require Social Distancing

It’s time to start thinking about what a “return to the workplace” entails and looks like. 

With new requirements with social distancing, it may be a good time to consider some new options with material handling and automation in order to stay 6 feet apart. 

Post-COVID life will bring many changes in the way we work. Processes and tasks within logistics and manufacturing centers will need to evolve to accommodate these changes. 

Decision-makers in many industries will be faced with ways to protect their employees with safe distancing while maintaining production efficiencies. 

Automating processes with the use of collaborative robots is a solution that will bridge the gaps in the workplace that social distancing requirements will create. 

There are a number of different options that can be added to your workflow using automation and material handling that can help limit human to human contact and speed up your process at the same time. 

Vacuum Lifters and Crane Systems:
Ergonomic handling technology for manual work processes. The solutions consist of a vacuum lifter and a compatible crane system.


Return conveyor’s are popular with edgebander, wide belt sanders and applications where the part has to be ran through the machine more than once.

can serve many functions from moving parts to loading and unloading sheets of material.
