This machine is a different type than the one in the first video and has been modified extensively for this kind of use.

Yeah, mostly Fanucs were used in my plant. Big heavy pieces of equipment. They were crazy about robot safety. They make some quick jerky movement and one that isn't specially programed and designed for human use can easily throw you around like a rag doll.

You can pick up a new Fanuc for around $50,000. Used one would be quite a bit less.
