FANUC is going Green, again!FANUC has done an incredible job innovating and keeping pace with what is currently driving the market. This was recently seen with the CR-35iA robot as the biggest and strongest collaborative robot to effortlessly show the world the beauty of combining the power of the robot with the flexibility of an operator. Carrying a 35kg payload, the robot attracted exceedingly high amounts of interest amongst an array of industries.So, FANUC made the next logical decision.
When a used robot comes into RobotWorx, it has usually been in a factory for quite a while. For these used robots, RobotWorx becomes the fountain of youth, restoring them to their long forgotten glory. The road to redemption is not an easy one for these robots, but RobotWorx has a process that will make that road easy and painless.Every acquired robot that passes through the doors of RobotWorx gets a thorough inspection.
There are a variety of arc welding applications on the market that are able to be automated with robots. One of those applications is an extension of TIG welding – plasma welding. ABB Robotics makes a high quality line of arc welding robots that are move at a high rate of speed, and their plasma welding robots are no exception.
Robot material handling is defined as movement, packaging or storing of materials in a manner that saves time, space, and money. When ready to automate a material handling application, we recommend you consider all the factors that go into laying out a good, productive robot system for your facility. Robots are an investment and it's key that robotic integration is done right, the first time.
A far cry from the manual applications that used to dominate the material handling industry before the industrial age, material handling is currently one of the most popular robotic application families on the market. Manufacturers are actively increasing the level of speed, competition, and productivity on their production line by choosing FANUC robotic material handlers.
So, your manufacturing facility has been growing over the last few years, and all of a sudden, your supply can’t keep up with the demand for your company’s product. What do you do?Automate, of course!Efficiency and adaptability are so important to manufacturers when it comes to mass customization and production. Material handling robots have the speed, payload capacity, decrease in errors, reduced cycle times, and consistent productivity for any job.
Gone are the days where you have to worry about the repetitive or strenuous manual labor tasks that cause body aches, pains, or worse for your workers. Material handling robots, in conjunction with specific robotic safety options RobotWorx offers, can significantly limit injury and increase safety around the workplace. Material handling robots can be employed to package, transfer parts, and palletize tasks that are hazardous to humans.
One of the biggest problems that manufacturers face when dealing with manual material handling processes is product damage. A human worker is not going to grab every product with the same amount of force every single time, and that could cause damage to the product, or even render it useless. Plus there is the possibility that a human worker could drop an item, causing damage. When you invest in material handling robots from KUKA Robotics, these fears become a thing of the past.
Workers handle material in the workplace on a daily basis. When lifting boxes or other items, they must be careful to lift heavy pieces in a specific way to reduce injury. This can slow down the lifting process and puts limitations on how much can be lifted at one time making it the perfect application for robotic material handling.Some facilities have forklifts or cranes that are manually operated to lift materials on a larger scale – materials that humans could not possibly lift.
FANUC, a leader in robotics for decades, supplies manufacturers worldwide with a plethora of models that weld, handle material and remove material. One specific area where FANUC has shined is the picking application. With FANUC’s line of “Spider,” or parallel-linked, robots, picking has never been easier for companies.Some of these FANUC robotic pickers will be used in areas like prescription drug packaging, where picking the right kind of pill is important.
