Centro, Inc., a leading automation and robotics solutions provider, is proud to add AUBO USA Robotics to its company line card. Adding AUBO USA Robotics will provide customers access to the latest collaborative robotics technology.

As an innovator in open-architecture-based robotics, AUBO USA has been researching and developing collaborative robots since its establishment in 2015. Their robots offer simple programming and can be used in various fields such as automobile, medical health, research, education, and logistics.

"What sets AUBO USA apart is its ability to develop collaborative robots with complete intellectual property rights and locally produced core parts," says Centro's Automation & Robotics Division Manager Steve Hartling. "This addition gives Centro's customers greater access to the latest collaborative robotic technology."

With safety features such as collision detection and emergency stop buttons built into all AUBO USA Robotics models, Centro’s customers can expect maximum safety for the robot and human operators. In addition, user-friendly programming interfaces make it easy for operators of any experience level to program the robots while precise accuracy ensures reliable performance, whatever the task. Furthermore, remote monitoring and control capabilities allow users to oversee multiple robots simultaneously for troubleshooting, maintenance, or continued customization.

"By 2025, I predict that up to 50% of manufacturing tasks will be automated," said Centro CEO Mike Gallagher. "By expanding our automation and robotics capabilities with AUBO, we can provide our customers with the most comprehensive solutions available."

AUBO USA's collaborative robotics have passed numerous international certification standards, including EN ISO 13849-1:2015, ISO 10218, and SEMI S2, which indicates their commitment to safety and stability in their products.

"We are excited about this partnership with Centro," said Jay Byrd, Director of Channel Development AUBO USA Robotics USA. "By teaming up, we can provide customers in Centro's territories in the Southeast with access to cutting-edge technology that will help them increase efficiency and reduce costs."

Almost every company can benefit from some level of automation because the time saved by automating processes can be used for other essential tasks. When companies automate successfully, they can increase their margins by cutting costs. In fact, industry thought leaders forecast that by 2025, automation could lead to a 20% reduction in labor costs.
