What Are The Benefits Of Having An Industrial Robot?

As robots are driving cars and delivering real "meals on wheels" in our larger cities, it is now time to evaluate whether we should add industrial robots in manufacturing. According to a recent survey, 60% of manufacturers are employing some form of robotics technology. The newest industrial robots are faster, smarter, and cheaper. They have more human traits such as memory, dexterity, sensing, and trainability, which means they can do jobs such as packaging and picking, inspecting or testing products, plus the assembly of miniature electronics. Brand new collaborative robots are proving that they can work side-by-side with human workers.

What are some of the benefits of having an industrial robot?

  • Robots can be used to do the tasks that are too dangerous, difficult, or boring for humans - They can work with constant precision and speed and bring a job to completion without feeling tired or sick.
  • Industrial robots are useful for increasing the total quantity of manufactured products and for decreasing the number of defective goods, without getting exhausted and making mistakes.
  • Industrial robots can be used in everything from auto manufacturing to the computer industry - They are excellent working with all manner of electronics from microwaves to smartphones, and they can be used in packaging and production of pharmaceutical, textiles, and food.
  • Robots work without breaks, sleep, salaries, or vacations.
  • Robots are very useful in the auto industry - Their tasks can include assembly, welding, painting, place and pick for printed circuit boards, palletizing, labeling and packaging, and product testing and inspection.
  • An industrial robot is programmable to perform over and over again a simple task -They are at home in a factory where constant velocity and a great degree of accuracy is required.

Industrial robots also have their limitations - but when a job is perfect for a robot to do, the productivity of your plant will increase exponentially.
