About COBOTS: A COBOT, or collaborative robot, is a robot designed for direct human-robot contact in a shared area or in close proximity to people. Traditional industrial robot applications, in which robots are segregated from human contact, contrast with COBOT applications. The lightweight construction materials, rounded edges, and intrinsic speed limitation of COBOT may all contribute to their safety.
The TRANSLAS 8XR Cobot MIG Extractor integrates the most efficient fume extraction structure in the welding industry. The torch comes with four different angles 22°, 35°, 45° and straight. The 8XR Cobot MIG Extractor, combined with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200, captures up to 98% of welding fumes directly at the source. The 8XR Cobot MIG Extractor provides the safest and most effective solution for welders and workers to breathe CLEAN AIR and better work environments.
Welding torches and welding equipment from Translas are distinctive in ergonomics, durability, performance, shape, and appearance.
