It's All About That Strength - Robot Payloads

Jul 8, 2014

An industrial robot can provide great strength to your production line, helping to tackle the back breaking labor and spare the human workers. Industrial robots with large payload capacities will bring your production line not only strength but also speed and great precision. ​Depending on the needs of your applications, there are industrial robots that can lift up to 1300 kgs.


So, you’re think­ing about get­ting a robot? One of the things you will have to research is the robot pay­load capac­i­ty. A robot pay­load is the max­i­mum of weight that a robot can pick up or manip­u­late. This is impor­tant to any man­u­fac­tur­er look­ing to auto­mate their pro­duc­tion line, because if you do not fac­tor in pay­load capac­i­ty, you will not get the advan­tages of speed and accu­ra­cy from your robot­ic system.

There are robots that can pick up almost any­thing. Robots can pick up 3kg, and some can pick up as much as 1300kgs. What you choose depends on what you need the robot to do. Many man­u­fac­tur­ers choose robots with large pay­load capac­i­ties because they can sin­gle-hand­ed­ly pick up and move items that one human work­er could nev­er lift on their own. These robots help pro­duc­tion to run more effi­cient­ly, sav­ing the com­pa­ny time and mon­ey on production.

On the oth­er hand, if your pro­duc­tion line works with very small parts, you may want to invest in a robot with a low­er pay­load capac­i­ty. These robots tend to be small­er, and can inter­act eas­i­er with small parts. A small pay­load capac­i­ty robot­ic sys­tem may work well for an elec­tron­ics com­pa­ny, for exam­ple, in areas where moth­er­boards and oth­er elec­tron­ics with small pieces, weld­ing and wiring need to be put together.

As you can see, the pay­load capac­i­ty of the robot you choose is very impor­tant. It needs to per­fect­ly match the amount that your robot needs to lift or manip­u­late. But, there are so many dif­fer­ent robots, how will you know what to choose, right? Oh, that one is easy – just give Robots​.com a call.
