Installing an automation system requires the assistance of experts. The staff at have over 35 years of experience and will make sure that your new robotic system integration goes smoothly.


So, you’ve done all the work. You’ve col­lab­o­rat­ed with a robot­ics inte­gra­tor like Robots​.com to come up with the per­fect robot­ics sys­tem or work cell for your facil­i­ty. You’ve planned out how the robot will work, and even worked out the bugs through vir­tu­al mod­els. And now, the robot or work cell has been built by Robots​.com, and it is sit­ting in your facil­i­ty. But, how do you go about installing this automa­tion into your workplace?

Well, one of the first steps for installing auto­mat­ed prod­ucts, after mar­veling at your pur­chase, is to remove the plas­tic from the robot. This may seem like an obvi­ous step, but it is nec­es­sary to note it. Also, when remov­ing the plas­tic from the robot, be care­ful to not rip any hoses or cables. That can be trag­ic for your sys­tem. When the plas­tic has been removed, please look over the entire sys­tem to make sure it is exact­ly as you wished. Make sure there is no dam­age or miss­ing parts any­where. Once you look over every­thing and ensure all the parts are there, it is time to move the robot.

Because robot sys­tems are usu­al­ly packed on pal­lets, it is easy to move them with the use of a fork­lift. Trans­port the robot to the spot that it will work. It is impor­tant to make sure that this space will be able to sup­port the weight of the robot, as well as the force and move­ment it will be using dur­ing the automa­tion process. Once the robot is in place and bolt­ed into the floor, it is just a just a mat­ter of con­nect­ing all of the cables, and test­ing out the robot for yourself.

Installing automa­tion seems easy, and it can be, espe­cial­ly if you use a robot­ics inte­gra­tor like Robots​.com to walk you through the process.
