Material Handling Robots: A material handling robot moves, selects or packs products. These robots are also used to automate feeding or disengaging parts or tools from one location to another.
Companies can also use material handling robots to transfer parts from one machine to another. Material handling robots can be used for many applications. Some popular models are the Fanuc M-410 and the Motoman UP130 . When considering which material handling equipment is right for your facility, you should consider possible production problems, the layout of the facility and the type of material being handled.
By choosing to automate with a material handling robot, manufacturers raise the safety level of their facilities. Material handling is usually tedious, dull and sometimes injury-inducing. Material handling robots get human workers out of the tedium and into more fulfilling jobs in the company.
