Riveting used to be one of the most common process when assembling automobiles, airplanes, boxcars, ships, etc. However, over the years, resistance welding has become more adaptable for transportation assembly with the introduction of robotics. Now, by investing in a robotic resistance welder, manufacturers are able to speed up the process, while also saving money on materials by doing away with the rivets. Decades ago, riveting was a common trade, just like welding.

Welding is one of the most common applications in the industrial world of metal working. While robots have been welding for many years, many applications have the same problem – they can’t weld metals that have vastly different properties. That is where electron beam welding robots come into play.

When industrial robot companies like ABB Robotics began producing palletizing robots for factories, it changed the entire end-of-line production processes forever. ABB makes several robot models capable of palletizing a wide array of products, and by using ABB palletizing robots, manufacturers are going to get a faster, more accurate palletizing process that is also safer for workers. It is obvious that speeding up a palletizing process is ideal for manufacturers.

Packaging is one of the most common uses for robotics systems on the market today. KUKA Robotics, one of the leading manufacturers of robotic technology, has created several different packaging robot models, which span the packaging needs of the market today. One of the major industries where precision packaging is extremely important is the food industry. Packaging can be a tedious job for human workers, and when a job is dull and repetitive, sometimes workers may have more errors.

Robotic welding has been around for many years, and in the past two decades has gained in popularity because of its ability to improve the speed and accuracy of the welding process. Plasma welding, one form of arc welding, is easily automated with robots and is often the choice when manufacturers need highly focused, tight welds for their products.

The pick and place application has been around for as long as factories and conveyor systems. This movement of products from one place to another was tedious and dull for human workers, and could also cause injuries due to repetitive movements. Then, pick and place robots came along to save the day. Several industries began automating their pick and place applications with robots, especially the food industry, where speed was a must.

Thermal spray is a process that has been around since the 1900s, and started to gain ground when NASA needed to figure out a way to protect their space vehicles when reentering the Earth’s atmosphere. Scientists found the process of coating the craft with high temperature metals or ceramics made the vehicle more heat resistant during the reentry process.

While many once thought that industrial robots were only applicable to metal fabrications and welding applications, manufacturers are now realizing that robot applications can stretch far beyond metal to work with softer materials like plastics and fiberglass. Milling is one of the many robotic applications that works well with plastics and other materials to ensure that products meet company standards before being shipped out to customers.

The industrial world has been mechanized for decades – robots are welding and handling material, but they are also removing material and making sure work pieces and finished products are functional. A grinding robot is one of the many robots responsible for making sure that work pieces have all of the imperfect parts removed, ensuring that the product looks great for customers.

Cutting applications have been around for many years, and many of these applications do not use a traditional cutting tool for their process – they use gases and lasers to cut different kinds of metals. Two of these applications, plasma cutting and laser cutting, can be automated, which means that robots are used to perform the cutting tasks.
