Buying a cost effective robot

Nov 7, 2013

There is no doubt that integrating a robotic system onto your production line will be a cost-effective solution for your production line. If you are considering automating your production line, it is important to consider your budget and the specific needs of your production line before deciding on the type of robotic system to purchase. experts are ready to listen to your needs and help decide on the perfect system for you.


The bot­tom line: using robots for man­u­fac­tur­ing appli­ca­tions is cost-effec­tive. Robots offer inno­vat­ing and cost-effec­tive solu­tions com­pared to man­u­al process­es or hard automation.

KUKA under­stands that to stay com­pet­i­tive with­in the indus­try, cus­tomers need to auto­mate to reduce costs and improve qual­i­ty. Their pri­or­i­ty is robots, and they main­tain that robot­ics is the most flex­i­ble and cost-effec­tive solu­tion for automa­tion. Robots can be used in sim­ple mate­r­i­al han­dling appli­ca­tions to com­plex assem­bly systems.

Fanuc has a team of engi­neers ded­i­cat­ed to devel­op­ing inte­gral robot­ic vision prod­ucts. These vision prod­ucts pro­vide a lev­el of cost-effec­tive­ness, per­for­mance, and reli­a­bil­i­ty that a third-par­ty solu­tion can­not match. iRVi­sion is installed in Fanuc robots and acts as their eyes. The LR Mate 200iC robot can error proof with the help of vision guid­ance. The R‑200iB is an expert at bin pick­ing, while the M‑430iA can pick and place. The M‑410iB spe­cial­izes in pal­letiz­ing oper­a­tions. The ARC Mate 0iA is the ide­al solu­tion for cost-effec­tive weld­ing of small parts. All of these cost-effec­tive robots save the user both mon­ey and time while increas­ing qual­i­ty in their operations.

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with Fanuc, Lin­coln Elec­tric intro­duced a cost-effi­cient robot­ic weld­ing solu­tion. The ARC Mate 0iA robot is used in con­junc­tion with Lincoln’s Pow­er Wave R350 pow­er source. This sim­pli­fied robot enables high-speed, qual­i­ty welds while pro­mot­ing cost efficiency.

Motoman offers more than 40 ful­ly inte­grat­ed, pre-engi­neered World work cell solu­tions that include robots, process equip­ment, and safe­ty equip­ment. World work cell solu­tions are cost-effec­tive and can meet most man­u­fac­tur­ing require­ments. They are easy to set up and oper­ate while low­er­ing costs.

ABB Robot­ics is anoth­er lead­ing indus­tri­al robot man­u­fac­tur­er, with over 200,000 robots installed world­wide. ABB Robot­ics focus­es on cre­at­ing high qual­i­ty robots to increase pro­duc­tion, safe­ty, and reli­a­bil­i­ty. With their diverse col­lec­tion of robots, you are sure to find one to fit your spe­cif­ic appli­ca­tion requirements. 

The role of robot­ics in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of aero­space prod­ucts is steadi­ly increas­ing. The largest use of robots in the aero­space indus­try is for drilling holes into com­po­nents. Robots can drill thou­sands of holes into the fuse­lage quick­ly and con­sis­tent­ly, which would be impos­si­ble for a human to do. Tool­ing costs are reduced when robots are used for drilling, since expen­sive tool­ing like jigs and fix­tures do not need to be pur­chased when a robot com­pletes the tasks. Fur­ther, robots can drill a hole in a sin­gle pass, while man­u­al drilling could take up to four oper­a­tions, sav­ing both time and mon­ey. Since the demand for air­craft is ris­ing sig­nif­i­cant­ly, the most cost-effec­tive way the aero­space indus­try can increase pro­duc­tion is through robot­ics.
