Choosing to Automate with Industrial Robotics
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 RobotWorx available to help you plan everything out. RobotWorx 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.
