Frequently asked questions on Robotics, Automation & Industry 4.0 Solutions


Equipped with force torque sensors, with collaborative robots, no additional safety systems are required, and operators can use the robot in an open environment safely. For Industrial robots, these safety features do not exist and hence need to be installed in machinery guarded cells.
When a robot is purchased through an equipment manufacturer, you get a Robot, controller and software. No tooling or programming is provided. System Integrators like POMO ROBOTICS help bring all your solutions together.
An End of Arm Tool or End Effector for a robot is a tool that is installed on the wrist of a robot. The tool helps to facilitate the actions that the robot needs to be carried out.

Collaborative Robots: Jaka, DOBOT, Automata, Franka Panda, KUKA IIWA, ABB GOFA and Doosan Robotics


Quadruped Robots: SPOT, Unitree Robotics A1

Delta: ABB Flexpicker, Gridbots Delta, KUKA Delta and FANUC Delta

Industry 4.0 is the generic term given to technologies and processes that facilitate the fourth industrial revolution. Technologies used under the 4th Industrial revolution in comparison to previous eras include the implementation of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic automation, Internet of Things, advanced manufacturing practices and working with innovative materials such as graphene.
When selecting a robot, think about Cycle Time, Reach, Payload and Operating Environment. If you are unsure, POMO Robotics can help select the right robot for you based on your requirements and a site survey.
Digital twins are a digital representation of your project. It is not just a CAD model or a 3D file, but it is a model that inputs various data points including operational data, CAD data, machine reliabilty data, machine failure data and running a virtual simulation of both manual and automated tasks
For example, in construction, Digital Twin models work on the basis of capturing cloud point data points and overlay this into existing CAD models. Doing this activity over days, months and years – gives you a full picture and an update on how the construction work has progressed which can be verified by overlaying your drawing packages on this model. For process driven industries, digital twins are an accurate representation of your new plant taking into account all manual and automated tasks, operational downtime data, machine reliability data and other legacy issues that need to be resolved. It helps you determine what areas of your plant need to be changed or modified to get the maximum out of your plant and equipment.
Digital Twins can help companies, organisations and institutions deliver a virtual model of their new factories without having to purchase any equipment. This helps determine if your fully system integrated solution can deliver the throughputs and KPIs that you are seeking before making a financial decision on your investment. We call this ZERO CAPITAL FACTORY.
Yes, Digital Twins are now existent in many industrial sectors including Food and Drink, Manufacturing, Automotive, Aerospace, Defence, Pharmaceuticals, Construction, Technology Industries, Logistics and Ecommerce Applications and much more.
A 6 Degree of Freedom Robot or DOF Robot means that the robot has 6 movable joints. Th erobot decides what joints it needs to move to perform a particular application or a certain task
