Integrating material handling in your facility

Aug 30, 2013

​​Integrating material handling robots onto your production facility will help to decrease the tedious labor done by human workers and increase their safety. Automating your material handling production line will also help save on labor costs.

Much like the weld­ing robots that pre­ced­ed them, the inte­gra­tion of mate­r­i­al han­dling into an already present pro­duc­tion line can be a tricky task. Man­u­fac­tur­ers have to exam­ine each step in their mate­r­i­al han­dling process and trans­late that to work with a robot, which is dif­fer­ent from trans­lat­ing it to work with a human.

Many times, man­u­fac­tur­ers may have to change their entire mate­r­i­al han­dling pro­duc­tion line around to work with a robot­ic inte­gra­tion. If these com­pa­nies inte­grate with­out tak­ing the mate­r­i­al han­dler into con­sid­er­a­tion, the robots being inte­grat­ed will most like­ly not be effec­tive in increas­ing their productivity.

Once the pro­duc­tion design is laid out, man­u­fac­tur­ers must also con­sid­er how much safe work­space they have avail­able for mate­r­i­al han­dling inte­gra­tion. Even though mate­r­i­al han­dling robots are being made safer than ever, with vision and sen­sors, there still needs to be a safe space between the oper­at­ing robot and oth­er work­ers on the line. The com­pa­ny also must have enough space for the robot to oper­ate with­out dam­ag­ing anything.

After all these things are con­sid­ered, com­pa­nies come to inte­gra­tors like Robots​.com to plan out their sys­tem inte­gra­tion. Robots​.com can inte­grate Fanuc, Motoman, ABB, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and KUKA robot­ics. We work close­ly with our cus­tomers dur­ing the inte­gra­tion of mate­r­i­al han­dling robot sys­tems to make sure that all their needs are met dur­ing the process.

Robots​.com will pro­duce the per­fect mate­r­i­al han­dling automa­tion sys­tem for inte­gra­tion into your work­space. The sys­tem will increase your pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, which will save you on pro­duc­tion and labor costs, while also decreas­ing the amount of down­time from injured work­ers by tak­ing over the tedious, back-break­ing labor.
