Advantages of Industrial Automation with Robots

Mar 11, 2024

​Industrial robots can tackle a wide range of jobs on the production floor such as arc welding, material handling, palletizing, and plasma cutting. They bring high levels of quality control, reduce waste, and increase repeatability and overall productivity. experts take pride in their customer service and over 35 years of experience, so contact our representatives today to get started with your integration.

Industrial automation

Robot­ics indus­tri­al automa­tion is chang­ing the face of pro­duc­tion. Man­u­fac­tur­ers around the globe are imple­ment­ing some form of automa­tion to become more effi­cient, safe, and ulti­mate­ly to increase rev­enues. While some advan­tages of automa­tion are obvi­ous, there may be more than you think. Add them all togeth­er and you can see why so many indus­tries are invest­ing in indus­tri­al robots. 

8 Advan­tages of Indus­tri­al Automation

Qual­i­ty Control

No one likes pur­chas­ing an item, only to be dis­ap­point­ed by the poor qual­i­ty. Robots are a great solu­tion for high­er qual­i­ty pro­duc­tion while stay­ing effi­cient. Qual­i­ty builds trust from cus­tomers as well as pride know­ing that you are con­tribut­ing some­thing of value.


Being con­sis­tent and know­ing that you will get the same qual­i­ty end prod­uct is crit­i­cal to effi­cien­cy. A robot can per­form the exact same task, exact­ly the same way, over and over again. Few­er errors mean less wast­ed time.

Waste Reduc­tion

Con­sis­tent repeata­bil­i­ty allows man­u­fac­tur­ers to reduce over­all waste. Few­er errors not only save time but also reduce the amount of mate­r­i­al required to pro­duce the prod­uct. A cou­ple of exam­ples: robots can use less wire for weld­ing, less amount of paint, and cut clos­er to the edge.

Faster Cycle Times

Unfor­tu­nate­ly humans have their lim­i­ta­tions. Robots have been known to improve pro­duc­tion cycle speeds great­ly. The more you can pro­duce, the high­er demand you can meet and ulti­mate­ly bring­ing in more money. 

Improved Work­place Safety

There are so many dan­ger­ous work envi­ron­ments that can have hor­ri­ble side effects on the human body. Sep­a­rat­ing work­ers from lift­ing too much weight, expo­sure to fumes and gas­es, and close inter­ac­tion with lasers or blades can tremen­dous­ly decrease the pos­si­bil­i­ty of injury. 

Reduc­tion of Labor Costs

Labor can be expen­sive, espe­cial­ly when you fac­tor in med­ical ben­e­fits, paid time off, injury comp time, etc… Robots can replace cer­tain jobs, but that does­n’t mean they are going to take over the world. It just means we need to adjust our focus. Under­stand­ing that robots are there for our safe­ty and effi­cien­cy allows us to remove work­ers from tough tedious jobs to more ful­fill­ing roles. 

Reduced Floor Space

It’s easy to start sprawl­ing out across the shop floor with extra mate­ri­als, tools, and machin­ery. Robots can help reduce the foot­print of the required work­space by opti­miz­ing every­thing into a small­er, con­fined space. 

Inte­gra­tion with Busi­ness Systems

Now a days, com­mu­ni­ca­tion between mul­ti­ple data plat­forms is rapid­ly grow­ing, improv­ing effi­cien­cy. You can see when there’s a bot­tle­neck a lot quick­er with prop­er tech­nol­o­gy installed. Robots and machin­ery are talk­ing with one anoth­er to give busi­ness lead­ers a bet­ter view on the over­all pic­ture, help­ing them make smarter deci­sions on how to improve their process. 

Stay Com­pet­i­tive in a Glob­al Econ­o­my with Indus­tri­al Automation

All of these advan­tages help com­pa­nies remain com­pet­i­tive in a glob­al econ­o­my. You may think that pur­chas­ing a robot is out of your bud­get or field of knowl­edge. How­ev­er, there are var­i­ous options and sup­port avail­able to reduce ini­tial costs and get you up and run­ning in no time. Work­ing with the right inte­gra­tor, who has expe­ri­ence work­ing with a vari­ety of small and big man­u­fac­tur­ing facil­i­ties, can great­ly help in the suc­cess of your business. 

Robots​.com is a leader in indus­tri­al automa­tion and pro­vides robot­ic solu­tions that will help your com­pa­ny pro­duce high-qual­i­ty prod­ucts, faster. Locat­ed in the Mid­west, Robots​.com can inte­grate both sim­ple and com­plex robot­ic sys­tems for most appli­ca­tions with a new or recon­di­tioned robot. We buy and sell new or refur­bished robots made by Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and ABB.

If you’re curi­ous about recon­di­tioned robots, in an effort to reduce your automa­tion costs, check out Is A Refur­bished Robot Right For My Busi­ness or What is the cost of a robot?. We also pro­vide a cal­cu­la­tor for an easy assess­ment of how quick­ly you can expect to get a Return On Invest­ment (ROI).
