Collaborative Robotic Automation

Supplying the Midwest With Lightweight Collaborative Robots

Keeping up with automation trends is a difficult task. But working with Oxygen Service Company means you’ll always be aware of the latest advancements.

What Are Cobots?

Adding new features to your robotic automation processes is critical in today’s industrial landscape. Robotic automation increases efficiency by allowing your workers to focus on other tasks. However, some dangerous jobs require the expertise of human hands, but benefit from the safety of robotic assistance. It’s in these situations where cobots provide value. Cobot automation systems are designed to work alongside your workers to complete dangerous jobs. Oxygen Service Company offers cobot automation solutions from top manufacturers, including:


We’re an authorized dealer of FANUC’s CRX cobots. These automation systems are safe, flexible, and easily controlled using tablets. CRX cobots operate safely in any environment and are ideal for small and medium-sized companies.

Welding Automation Systems From Prominent Manufacturers

OSC’s welding automation systems are made by some of the most well-known manufacturers in the industry, such as ABB, FANUC, Vectis Automation, and OTC Daihen. If you need a machine to swiftly join materials like mild steel, stainless steel, or aluminum, our automation solutions are a cost-effective way to get the job done right the first time. We can also provide plasma cutting robots, spot welding robots, and other robotic systems and applications.

We offer do-it-yourself commissioning so you don’t have to pay employees to attend weeklong training courses. Contact us today for more information.

Cobot Automation for Welding

A study by the American Welding Society found that the average age of welders is 55. The lack of a growing workforce means manufacturers have to work smarter and more efficiently. Introducing cobot automation to your facility offsets this increasing employee shortage. Other benefits include:

  • User-Friendly

    Unlike some robotic systems that require preprogramming experience, cobots are user-friendly and can be guided by someone unfamiliar with automation. The easy-to-use features enable manufacturers to train their employees in minutes.

  • Safe

    Cobots use advanced technology that allows them to work safely with humans, including environment-sensing software, mobile programming, and innovative designs. Cobots also increase safety by allowing your workers to perform dangerous tasks from safe distances. Despite increased safety measures, proper PPE gear is still recommended for any welding activity.

  • Relocatable

    Unlike industrial automation robots that are hard to move and stay in one place, cobots can be relocated to anywhere in your facility. Lightweight collaborative robots are easily wheeled throughout a job site to help your workers.

  • Flexible

    Cobots are easy to program and well-suited for production runs of all volumes. While some automated systems require significant amounts of programming time, cobots only need a few minutes before the system starts working, allowing for fast changeover and increasing productivity. Using cobots for low production quantities also maintains quality and allows your workers to focus on higher-value tasks at your facility.

  • Consistent Results

    Quality is essential for any manufacturer. Cobots provide consistent results by creating longer, more continuous weld seams, meaning fewer disruptions and a higher-quality weld.

  • Increased Return on Investment (ROI)

    Cobots provide a high ROI by eliminating non-productive activities during regular production hours. They also decrease labor and maintenance costs, leading to bigger profit margins.

Other Industries That Benefit From Collaborative Robots

Metal fabrication is just one of the industries that benefit from cobot automation systems. Other businesses that benefit include:

Food and Beverage

Cobots’ easy programming qualities mean they quickly adapt to various roles in the food and beverage industry. They can assist in the production lines and package food to meet increased seasonal demands. Cobots also increase safety for food workers and the public because they reduce the risk of injury in processes that involve extreme temperatures and the risk of contamination in low-touch tasks.


The electronics industry uses cobots to assist in the production of lighting, phones, speakers, and computers. Cobots offer the flexibility to quickly adapt to assembly, testing, or packing processes and increase consistency in repetitive tasks. Lightweight collaborative robots allow electronics manufacturers of all sizes to meet output demands and lower costs.


Cobots are driving innovation in the automotive industry. By working side-by-side with workers, they improve output and consistency in daily operations. Lightweight collaborative robots easily adapt to various roles throughout an automotive production facility and increase consistency in repetitive tasks.

Medical and Pharmaceuticals

Meeting production quotas while maintaining safety is a top priority for the pharmaceutical industry. Cobots perform repetitive tasks for human workers and reliably accomplish delicate assembly jobs while minimizing the risk of contamination. Collaborative robots also increase ROI by reducing waste and enhancing productivity.
