Choosing to Automate with Industrial Robotics

Jun 30, 2014

Industrial robots are making their way across the globe inside practically almost every manufacturing line. They can perform applications such as welding, material handling, dispensing, and material removal. Industrial robots can take the form of the typical six-axes, or slightly different seen with inverted gantry, small tabletop, or even a spider-like delta robot. Consider your application's specific needs and contact experts today to get started with choosing the perfect automation system to integrate.


So, you want to buy an indus­tri­al robot. Not sure where to start? That’s okay. Let’s take this one step at a time.

An indus­tri­al robot is a robot that is used in an indus­tri­al mar­ket to per­form appli­ca­tions like weld­ing, mate­r­i­al han­dling, dis­pens­ing and mate­r­i­al removal process­es. These robots can take the form of the com­mon six-axis sin­gle robot­ic arm, the dual-armed indus­tri­al robot­ic sys­tem, the invert­ed gantry mod­el, the small­er table­top robot, or even the spi­der-like delta-style robot. Each indus­tri­al robot sys­tem can be used for a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent pur­pos­es, mak­ing them very ver­sa­tile in a work space.

Once you decide on which indus­tri­al robot you are going to use on your pro­duc­tion line, you need to start con­sid­er­ing what you want your robot to do. Some­times, a pro­duc­tion line has to be trans­lat­ed into robot­ic move­ments, instead of human move­ments, for it to be suc­cess­ful. If the pro­duc­tion line isn’t prop­er­ly planned, you may not get the boost in pro­duc­tiv­i­ty that you are look­ing for with your robot.

Seem like a lot to think about it? It real­ly is, and that is why there are robot­ics inte­gra­tors like Robots​.com avail­able to help you plan every­thing out. Robots​.com is a lead­ing inte­gra­tor for some of the roboticsindustry’s top com­pa­nies – includ­ing Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and ABB. Our staff will help you plan out every step for your indus­tri­al robot sys­tem. We will lis­ten to exact­ly what you want your robot to do, and then we will con­tact ven­dors and get you all of the prop­er dress pack­ages, fea­tures, end of arm tool­ing and oth­er parts nec­es­sary to make your sys­tem come to life.

If you are inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about indus­tri­al robots, and how Robots​.com can help you with your next automa­tion project, con­tact us online or give us a call today at 8777626881.
