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.

Robotic painting is probably one of the easiest ways for a manufacturer to save money, and it is also one of the oldest robotic applications around. Companies like ABB Robotics have been designing flexible painting robots for decades, and their designs just keep getting faster and more agile as the years go by.

Robotic bonding is not some way for robots and workers to get closer – though that may be what it sounds like off hand. Bonding and sealing robots are integral parts of many different automated production lines across the country. These robots work in several different areas, including the automotive industry, to make sure that products are bonded and sealed correctly, a process that improves the longevity of the item.

Machine loading and unloading can be a tedious, and sometimes treacherous, job for workers, especially if they are not paying attention during the loading and unloading process. That is why machine loading robots are so attractive to manufacturers these days. Not only can machine loading robots improve the cycle times for the loading and unloading process, but robotic systems are also not susceptible to the injuries that can harm human workers.

Flux cored welding, also known as flux cored arc welding or FCAW, is a type of welding where a consumable electrode is fed continuously during the welding process. This electrode contains flux, hence the name of the welding process. Flux cored welding robots have many advantages over other types of welding applications, as well as having advantages over manual flux cored welding processes.

So, you’re thinking about getting a robot? One of the things you will have to research is the robot payload capacity. A robot payload is the maximum of weight that a robot can pick up or manipulate. This is important to any manufacturer looking to automate their production line, because if you do not factor in payload capacity, you will not get the advantages of speed and accuracy from your robotic system. There are robots that can pick up almost anything.

Robots move at a high rate of speed, eclipsing their human counterparts in many different application areas. However, there are some robots that move at higher rates of speed than others, making them preferable to companies that have fast production lines, like those companies in the food and beverage industry, for example. With these faster, high-speed robots, the companies that feed us are able to get food out to stores at a more rapid rate.

In the 1960s and 1970s, industrial robots were used mainly for painting applications, as well as some assembly and spot welding applications. However, throughout the 1980s and up through the present time, industrial robots have increased in the market exponentially, throughout many different manufacturing markets and beyond. The automotive industry was the first industry to really increase the sales of robotics across the board.

When industrial robots first debuted in the 1960s with the Unimate, researchers saw many possibilities for their future. Over the years, these robots have evolved into machines that can paint, weld, handle material and remove material, along with an entire host of other applications. This new generation of researchers look to the robotics from the old generation to find ways for robots to help the world outside of the factory.
