Collaborative robots, or cobots, are versatile robotic companions designed to work in tandem with humans to perform a wide range of tasks within industrial factory environments, including welding, product inspection, dispensing, and material handling. While engineered to withstand demanding conditions, certain critical cobot components, particularly their arms, are susceptible to damage from extreme environmental factors and operational demands. With the steady increase in cobot adoption over recent years, the need for protective solutions to safeguard the robot arms against performance degradation and premature wear became evident.

Introducing the NRF Series of Robot-Flex suits meticulously tailored to cater to renowned manufacturers, including YASKAWA, specializing in collaborative robot solutions. Our Robot-Flex suits are crafted to provide optimal range of motion for each cobot model, simultaneously extending the lifespan of the protective cover. These suits integrate a harmonious blend of conventional manufacturing techniques and cutting-edge 3D printing technologies.
