Early skepticism regarding the adoption of in the industrial manufacturing environment is fading as more businesses are realizing the significant cost savings, quality improvements, and productivity gains associated with flexible robotic solutions.
Advantages of automating assembly with robotics include:
- Improved labor productivity
- Reduction in cycle time and floor space utilization
- Quality and reliability improvement
- Consistency in processing
- Reduction of waste
- Lower production costs
Operating faster and with more precision than human labor, assembly robots perform highly repetitive tasks, freeing your employees to perform other tasks that do not involve risk for workplace injuries. Robotic assembly systems may consist of one or multiple assembly operations occurring within a work cell. Integrating automated robots into a workplace generally requires a high initial investment, but the ROI time is minimal.
Common robotic assembly applications include functions such as:
- part fastening
- part joining
- part sorting
- part identification
- part feeding
- tool changing
- part inspection
- bin picking
- part traceability
- adhesive, sealant & grease dispensing
Collaboration of robots and humans is also becoming a popular option for industrial manufacturing assembly. Lower in cost and with a smaller footprint, collaborative robots with advanced vision and sensor technologies are allowing business owners to support their human labor with robotic assistance. In the event that an employee gets in the way of a robot on the production line, the robot will stop until its path is clear.
