Robotic Systems in Action

Jul 15, 2013

Robotic systems can take over the boring and tedious tasks from human workers. They can help to improve the product quality and increase the productivity on the manufacturing line. Robotic systems also help to increase the worker safety environment.


Robot­ic sys­tems have been around for years in one way or anoth­er. Since the Uni­mate came on the scene in the 1960s, robots have tak­en over many of the tedious, dull and dan­ger­ous jobs that were once han­dled by human workers.

Today, these robot­ic sys­tems can do almost any­thing. With a robot arm that acts much like a human arm with a shoul­der, elbow and wrist, these robots can weld, as well as han­dling and remov­ing mate­r­i­al from a pletho­ra of items.

In the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try, robot sys­tems are being put to work for many dif­fer­ent tasks. Robots are assem­bling and weld­ing cars, air­planes, fur­ni­ture and refrig­er­a­tors. Robots are sort­ing and pack­ag­ing cakes, cook­ies and pota­to chips. Robots are even putting togeth­er the moth­er­boards of the com­put­ers that every­one uses today.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers turn to robot­ic sys­tems due to the sev­er­al advan­tages that these sys­tems bring to the table for any application.

Robots reduce cycle times, which in turn speeds up pro­duc­tion for the man­u­fac­tur­er and keeps pro­duc­tion costs low. Robots enhance the accu­ra­cy dur­ing weld­ing and part manip­u­la­tion, an accu­ra­cy that can­not be matched by human hands. And, robots can even keep work­ers safe by per­form­ing the brunt of the work on jobs that can be injury-induc­ing or need to be per­formed in haz­ardous environments.

All in all, robots have come a long way since the Uni­mate, and robot com­pa­nies will con­tin­ue to inno­vate and improve their robot­ic sys­tems for decades to come.

Robots​.com, a cer­ti­fied inte­gra­tor for robot sys­tems from Fanuc, Motoman, ABB, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and KUKA, has sev­er­al sys­tems avail­able for cus­tomiza­tion and pur­chase. Robots​.com’ high­ly-skilled team of tech­ni­cians and engi­neers work with the cus­tomer to design the right sys­tem for their facility.
