Decreasing Injury Potential with Machine Loading Robots

Aug 5, 2014

Industrial robots can accomplish a wide range of tasks that can cause injuries to human workers. For instance, machine loading and unloading robots can help take over the tedious and treacherous work. They are also consistent, improve cycle times, and not susceptible to the same human injuries.


Machine load­ing and unload­ing can be a tedious, and some­times treach­er­ous, job for work­ers, espe­cial­ly if they are not pay­ing atten­tion dur­ing the load­ing and unload­ing process. That is why machine load­ing robots are so attrac­tive to man­u­fac­tur­ers these days. Not only can machine load­ing robots improve the cycle times for the load­ing and unload­ing process, but robot­ic sys­tems are also not sus­cep­ti­ble to the injuries that can harm human workers.

Many dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies have machine load­ing robots, espe­cial­ly those in the trans­porta­tion indus­try. Sev­er­al parts have to be stamped or pressed when you are build­ing a vehi­cle, and those parts have to be loaded and unloaded out of machines. When robots are per­form­ing the load­ing and unload­ing appli­ca­tions, cycle times decrease dra­mat­i­cal­ly, which allows man­u­fac­tur­ers to get parts made more quick­ly and pro­duce more vehicles.

How­ev­er, speed is not the only advan­tage of using a machine load­ing robot, as men­tioned above. When a com­pa­ny invests in a robot­ic machine loader, they are invest­ing in an increased up-time for their pro­duc­tion line. Robots do not get sick, and they do not get injured, either by the machines or by the repet­i­tive move­ments that these jobs require. That means that pro­duc­tion down­time and shut­downs due to lack of work­ers is no longer an issue for man­u­fac­tur­ers. With robot­ic machine load­ing and unload­ing sys­tems, man­u­fac­tur­ers are able to fill orders on time, and make sure their cus­tomers get the best parts possible.
