Advantages of Pick and Place Robots
The modern manufacturing environment has evolved to reflect unprecedented levels of productivity, owing greatly to automation technology. One of the best examples of this is the widespread use of pick and place robots. These robotic automation systems are extremely well suited for a variety of simple, repetitive tasks.
Advantage pick and place robots bring to manufacturing operations include:
- Improved Accuracy
- Increased Process Speed
- Flexibility to Accommodate Multiple Product Changes
- Improved Consistency
- Ergonomic Injury Reduction
- Cost Efficiency
- Minimal Floor Space Requirements
- Completely Customizable
Pick and place robots offer manufacturers a highly efficient and cost effective alternative to using human labor resources for monotonous physical tasks and operations that have the potential to be unsafe. Ideal pick and place tasks might involve repetitive movements or awkward positions, which for humans can lead to strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Fully customizable, pick and place robots are designed to meet the industry specific needs of our customers. These systems are highly effective in meeting the challenges of typical material handling processes.
The level of consistency achievable with pick and place robots in completing assembly, quality control, packaging and other material handling processes is unprecedented. In this way, pick and place robots enhance overall quality of production and reduce downtime due to errors. The level of speed that robotic systems can achieve contributes significantly to productivity, as products can move through the manufacturing process much faster than manual options, without sacrificing accuracy.
Pick and place robots offer manufacturers an excellent return on investment (ROI) due to the productivity advantages they can provide.
