Putting It All Together – Robotic Assembly In Action

Feb 22, 2016

Robotic assembly has helped production lines bring consistency, accuracy, and increased productivity. They are bringing huge advancements on their manufacturing lines across the globe. All assembly robots bring a very fast ROI and help the manufacturer achieve consistent product quality.

Assembly Line Robots

Reach­ing back into his­to­ry as far as the Cro-Magnon Man, human beings have been con­struct­ing tools for use in their every­day lives. Once man moved out of caves and into struc­tures and cities, man­u­fac­tur­ers start­ed to pop up in the form of crafts­men like wood work­ers, cob­blers and tai­lors. Humans have always assem­bled tools and oth­er items. Now, assem­bly robots are join­ing in also.

With the indus­tri­al rev­o­lu­tion came man­u­fac­tur­ing on a larg­er scale with the intro­duc­tion of not only fac­to­ries, but also the assem­bly line. Assem­bly lines allowed work­ers to focus on putting one piece of an item togeth­er over and over, as opposed to com­plete­ly assem­ble each item themselves.

While man­u­al assem­bly appli­ca­tions were explod­ing onto a large scale to begin fill­ing the needs of the grow­ing population’s demand, man­u­fac­tur­ers con­tin­ued to look for the next big thing that would increase pro­duc­tion on their assem­bly lines.

That next big” thing came with the Uni­mate robot in the 1960s. This first indus­tri­al robot was the begin­ning of indus­tri­al automa­tion. In the 1980s, assem­bly robots began to take off, and things have nev­er been the same for manufacturers.

Robot man­u­fac­tur­ers from Fanuc to Motoman to KUKA have devel­oped mod­els for robot­ic assem­bly. These com­pa­nies have been press­ing for­ward and inno­vat­ing to bring man­u­fac­tur­ers all the advan­tages of robot­ic assembly.

Assem­bly robots con­struct items faster and more accu­rate than human work­ers could ever imag­ine. By decreas­ing cycle times for man­u­fac­tured items, robot­ic assem­bly automa­tion gets prod­ucts out to the con­sumer soon­er, while keep­ing pro­duc­tion and labor costs down.

Robots​.com, a cer­ti­fied inte­gra­tor for Fanuc, ABB, Motoman, and KUKA robot­ics, has sev­er­al new and refur­bished assem­bly robot mod­els avail­able for pur­chase and cus­tomiza­tion. Robots​.com works with cus­tomers to design the lay­out and sys­tem to meet all their unique specifications.
