The Advantages of the Robotic Pick and Pack System
While there are several parts of production that are important, especially when constructing a product, there are also important processes that come at the end of the line, when the products are completely assembled and ready to be sent to the consumer. When manufacturers choose to automate these processes with pick and place robot systems, they can be sure that they have made an advantageous decision.
One of the best advantages of the robot pick and packer? The speed. A pick and pack robotic system is going to pick up an object, or many objects, and pack them into a box, carton, tray or some other type of container, at a much faster rate than a human worker, improving production speed several times over. Along with speed, robotic pick and pack systems also have the advantage of precision, something that is paramount when packing items up for transport. You have to get the right items in the right boxes, right? What better than the accuracy that only comes with a robotic system?
Another advantage is the decrease of downtime that comes with switching to pick and pack robots. Picking and packing is tedious and can be injury inducing. Workers can get repetition injuries that can slow their process or cause them to take time off work. Robot pick and pack systems do not have the same type of issues. They do not get injuries from their work, and they do not need days off, breaks or sick time. They can virtually run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This saves companies time and money on their production processes.
