The importance of robot accuracy

Jun 16, 2014

When you are integrating an automation system onto your production line, you can expect improved and consistent accuracy from your robot. For instance, for welding applications industrial robots can be expected to hit the same spot on every cycle ensuring that all pieces are welded just the same. This accuracy brings greater consistency, efficiency, and a stronger part in the end.


When a man­u­fac­tur­er is shop­ping for a great robot for their pro­duc­tion line, accu­ra­cy is one of the fea­tures they look at first. Accu­ra­cy is extreme­ly impor­tant in the major­i­ty of robot­ic appli­ca­tion, espe­cial­ly when it comes to weld­ing and mate­r­i­al removal.

Robot­ic accu­ra­cy dur­ing the weld­ing appli­ca­tion is impor­tant for sev­er­al rea­sons. A robot may have to weld a small part or a large part, depend­ing on the pro­duc­tion run, but they have to hit the same spot on every cycle to ensure that they are weld­ing on the right part of the work pieces. Also, a robot that has a high lev­el of accu­ra­cy is also able to pro­duce a stronger weld on every work piece, every time, as opposed to a human welder, whose posi­tion may dif­fer slight­ly dur­ing each cycle.

The accu­ra­cy of each robot on a pro­duc­tion line is also impor­tant for mate­r­i­al removal appli­ca­tions. Human work­ers may drill a hole in the wrong place, or take too much off a work piece dur­ing debur­ring, which may ren­der the work piece use­less. A robot, which has a high­er lev­el of accu­ra­cy than a human work­er, is able to remove the exact amount of mate­r­i­al nec­es­sary, which once again, improves the over­all qual­i­ty of the product.

Are you inter­est­ed in robot­ic accu­ra­cy and how a boost in accu­ra­cy can reflect well on your pro­duc­tion line? If so, you should give Robots​.com a call! Our staff will stand with you through the entire inte­gra­tion process from the ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion to build­ing and pur­chas­ing, and even on to the inte­gra­tion of the robot into your facility.
