Productive Robotics has acquired Cobots Guide, the information website about collaborative robotics. 

Productive Robotics says the acquisition will “advance industry relations, education, research, and advocacy in the acceptance and use of collaborative robots”.

Productive Robotics, which has just launched its new OB-7 collaborative robots, says that with market forecasts of $2 billion by 2021, the collaborative robot industry will be experiencing considerable growth. 

Collaborative robots or “cobots” are an evolution from traditional industrial robots offering more lightweight, mobile, and flexible robots that can work alongside humans. Cobots can eliminate the need for cages or safety fencing, while also reducing workplace accidents.

Operating independently from Productive Robotics, Cobots Guide says it will advocate for the collaborative robot industry to encourage broad knowledge and acceptance of collaborative robots in manufacturing and non-manufacturing practice, education and public policy.

Cobots Guide says it will be introducing a new media portal for industry leaders to connect, share, and increase exposure to their latest technology advancements, press releases, and other related news.

This acquisition will benefit Cobots Guide with the resources to represent the industry as “the best source of information on cobots”.
