The Ins and Outs of Robotic Workcells

Jul 9, 2013 offers a wide range of customized workcells available for customer's specific needs. This includes the turntable, gantry, ferris wheel, and stationary turntable workcells. Depending on your specific needs, each robot workcell has advantages. ​


When look­ing to auto­mate your man­u­al sys­tems, there are many choic­es out there. Many of these choic­es are deter­mined by your appli­ca­tion and what equip­ment you will need.

Robots​.com car­ries sev­er­al cus­tomized robot­ics work­cells, includ­ing the turntable, gantry, fer­ris wheel, and sta­tion­ary turntable work­cells. Each robot work­cell has unique advan­tages for dif­fer­ent applications.

The fer­ris wheel robot work­cell is designed to accom­mo­date more than one robot. This robot work­cell is designed to han­dle up to three welders, which will not only help a man­u­fac­tur­er increase speed, but also vol­ume of production.

The gantry robot­ic work­cell is mount­ed on an over­head track, which gives it more abil­i­ty to reach into tighter spaces and dif­fer­ing angles from a floor mount­ed mod­el. These kinds of robot­ic work­cells can decrease the num­ber of robots need­ed in an area by hav­ing a larg­er work enve­lope. They also save space, which can be a plus for man­u­fac­tur­ers with more com­pact floor space layouts.

Anoth­er mod­el, the turntable robot­ic work­cell, is per­fect for weld­ing and cut­ting appli­ca­tions. This posi­tion­er will rotate parts into the robot’s work area, and then once the appli­ca­tion is fin­ished, it will rotate the part back out of the work area again, where it can be grabbed by anoth­er robot or by a human work­er to be tak­en to the next area.

There is also a sta­tion­ary table mod­el robot work­cell avail­able. This mod­el does not have a rotat­ing table as men­tioned above. Instead, it has two sta­tion­ary tables that have doors that move up and down. A work­er can place the piece on one table, close the door, and then pick it up and move it some­where else. Or, the robot can work on the piece, and move it to anoth­er table, across the cell, where it can be picked up.

With all these choic­es, who can decide on their aown, right?
