Exploring the Flexibility of Robots

Jun 10, 2014

Industrial robots have been increasing the productivity on manufacturing lines for more than four decades. As technology continues to advance, these systems are becoming more affordable and easier to integrate on production lines of all sizes. A robot's flexibility helps to increase the versatility of one's production line, allowing for a greater reach, rotation, and mounting options. ​


Indus­tri­al robots have been mak­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing eas­i­er for more than forty years now. As the robots become more and more high­ly evolved, they become more flex­i­ble, and even eas­i­er for man­u­fac­tur­ers to inte­grate into their pro­duc­tion lines.

A robot’s flex­i­bil­i­ty is inte­gral to how it oper­ates on a pro­duc­tion line. An indus­tri­al robot is able to bend and stretch in ways that humans can­not mim­ic. With this option of a much greater reach, man­u­fac­tur­ers have the abil­i­ty to use robots at sev­er­al dif­fer­ent sta­tions, instead of at just one place on a pro­duc­tion line. Many robots have the abil­i­ty to rotate 360 degrees, which means that a work area can be very versatile.

Anoth­er way that robots are flex­i­ble is their abil­i­ty to per­form sev­er­al dif­fer­ent kinds of appli­ca­tions. Many robots can han­dle mate­r­i­al, as well as weld and/​or remove mate­r­i­al. With these types of robots on the line, man­u­fac­tur­ers are not only able to speed up their pro­duc­tion and improve their accu­ra­cy, but also save mon­ey by cut­ting down on the amount of equip­ment nec­es­sary to per­form pro­duc­tion tasks.

Robots​.com pro­vides robots from sev­er­al dif­fer­ent robot­ics com­pa­nies, includ­ing Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, and ABB, has access to sev­er­al hun­dred flex­i­ble robot mod­els. Our cus­tomers are able to work with our staff all the way from the ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion to the inte­gra­tion into their facil­i­ty, hav­ing a hand in design­ing and build­ing the robot from begin­ning to end.
