Playing It Safe With Material Handling Robots
Material handling robots can take over the tasking, back breaking labor that once was completed by human workers. These robots tackle the material handling applications with ease and help to reduce the injuries while also increasing productivity. Material handling robots can be used for packaging, part transfer, palletizing and more, so contact Robots.com today to get started with your integration process.
Paired with proper safety options, material handling robots take a load off your workers.
Gone are the days where you have to worry about the repetitive or strenuous manual labor tasks that cause body aches, pains, or worse for your workers. Material handling robots, in conjunction with specific robotic safety options, can significantly limit injury and increase safety around the workplace.
Material handling robots can be employed to package, transfer parts, and palletize tasks that are hazardous to humans. Workers quickly become supervisors where they no longer have to perform dangerous applications in hazardous settings. In addition, the employers also get huge financial savings with fewer healthcare and insurance concerns for the workers.
In order for these material handling robots to work effectively and safely, workers need to be trained on these robot material handling systems and learn the precautions to take to stay safe during robotic material handling applications.
A safety training session is all that is necessary to make sure that workers are aware and educated on robotic safety. This will save manufacturers from possible injuries and production slowdowns later down the road. Training is offered by Robotworx on all of the material handling robots purchased.
There are a variety of safety guard options that Robots.com, a certified integrator of Fanuc, Motoman, ABB, and KUKA robotic products, offers to consumers. Material handling robotic work cells and industrial arms complete their tasks fast and with tremendous force. They can be dangerous to workers if they are not properly guarded.
There are physical barrier options such as fencing and dividers that help to add a physical barrier and perimeter around the robot and curtains that aid in debris and arc glare protection.
There are also invisible barriers like light curtains and area scanners. SICK makes a variety of cost –effective light curtains and area scanners used by Robots.com in several of their work cells and robot systems. They both protect the access point for the entry point of the robot system and come in many sizes with different resistance variants.
