Modular Robots in the Electronics Industry

Aug 18, 2013

Modular robots are able to more easily adapt on different product lines. As the product size or group size changes, modular robots can keep up with the pace and adapt.


Like any man­u­fac­tur­er, those in the elec­tron­ics indus­try do what they can to adapt to the ever-chang­ing tech­nol­o­gy in their field. That means automat­ing many of their appli­ca­tions, and includ­ing mod­u­lar robots in that automa­tion.

As prod­uct lines change, so do the needs of the lines that pro­duce them. By mod­u­lar­iz­ing robots and oth­er equip­ment, elec­tron­ics man­u­fac­tur­ers give their lines more flex­i­bil­i­ty. This flex­i­bil­i­ty gives the mod­u­lar robot a longer life­time with the man­u­fac­tur­er it serves, along with the abil­i­ty to con­tin­ue to improve pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, despite its place in the plant.

By con­sis­tent­ly using mod­u­lar­iza­tion for robots, the machines are able to adapt eas­i­er to the vary­ing degrees of dif­fer­ent prod­uct lines that may have dif­fer­ent prod­uct sizes, group sizes and dif­fer­ent cycle times and through­put. Tech­nol­o­gy changes at a light­ning pace, and these robots need to be able to adapt to those changes.

Also, by using mod­u­lar robots, man­u­fac­tur­ers are able to work a lean­er pro­duc­tion line, while improv­ing their auto­mat­ed test­ing process­es for their elec­tri­cal com­po­nents, includ­ing equip­ment tests, and add capac­i­ty for the prod­uct line to meet the demand of the consumers.

When the elec­tron­ics indus­try, as well as oth­er indus­tries with high prod­uct turnover, are able to install super flex­i­ble mod­u­lar robot sys­tems, this will result in an improve­ment in hard­ware, soft­ware and the inter­ac­tion of the robots, fur­ther improv­ing the integri­ty and the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of the pro­duc­tion process.
