The scientific paper proposes a pragmatic perspective of presenting the most important theoretical and practical issues on the process of manufacturing by electrical erosion and integration of collaborative robots in an industrial organization, processes linked to the possibility of using new technologies in industry. Collaborative robots are an important viable alternative to new ways of streamlining process management in modern industrial organizations and in this article is presented the possibility of their integration in a processing flow based on electrical erosion. The research presents in an elegant way the possibilities of streamlining everything that means the process of manufacturing by electrical erosion using collaborative robots. The point of view presented is only a small part of what involves the implementation of such opportunities with a deep novelty. Through this scientific paper the authors are offering new opportunities to implement the concepts of efficiency and effectiveness in the process of manufacturing by electrical erosion in industry.
