Automating Appliance Manufacturing with Robots
Robots seem to be taking over many different aspects of manufacturing today. The manufacturing of appliances is just one of many markets where industrial robot automation can be found. The automation of appliance manufacturing gives companies the ability to improve the speed and quality with which these appliances – refrigerators, washers, dryers, stoves, etc. – are produced, and it allows these companies to stay viable in a very competitive marketplace.
Appliance manufacturing is probably one of the most automated markets in the world, next to automotive manufacturing. Washers, dryers, and refrigerators, along with other smaller appliances, all have intricate electrical parts, along with pieces that need to be welded and assembled on a production line. With the help of robotic automation, these appliances can be made in a fraction of the time it would take to produce them by hand.
Along with the speed at which robots can automate appliance manufacturing, there is also the need to improve the accuracy. One wire put in the wrong panel, or one bolt out of place can mean the difference between a functional appliance and something that will be thrown out and wasted. By using appliance automation, companies are able to improve the precision of their assembly process, while also cutting down on worker errors, which enhances the quality of the product for consumers.
