The many capabilities of an industrial robot

Nov 24, 2013

Industrial robots can help increase the efficiency, versatility, and product quality on a wide range of production lines. They can help applications such as assembly, welding, painting, product inspection, picking and placing, die casting, drilling, glass making, grinding, and more. As technology continues to advance, industrial robots are becoming more affordable for a wide range of businesses sizes.


The use of robots improves effi­cien­cy and accu­ra­cy on a vari­ety of appli­ca­tions. Robot capa­bil­i­ties range from work­ing on triv­ial tasks to indus­tri­al process­es like weld­ing and drilling to oper­at­ing on humans under­go­ing surgery.

Robots are appliances/​machines that are con­trolled by a com­put­er. They save time and mon­ey as they replace human labor for haz­ardous or repet­i­tive tasks. Since they nev­er grow tired, they can work long hours in harsh environments.

Appli­ca­tions such as assem­bly, weld­ing, paint­ing, prod­uct inspec­tion, pick­ing and plac­ing, die cast­ing, drilling, glass mak­ing, and grind­ing are all accom­plished by robots. They are used to sup­port sur­geons and assist with oper­a­tions in the med­ical field, and can also dis­pense phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal drugs. 

Many indus­tries rely heav­i­ly on robots, includ­ing: aero­space, auto­mo­tive, con­sumer goods, elec­tron­ics, met­als, food and bev­er­age, foundry, med­ical, mil­i­tary, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal, plas­tics, and wood.

Mod­ern robots are equipped with vision tech­nol­o­gy that allows robots to see.” Vision-guid­ed robots can per­form oper­a­tions such as load­ing and unload­ing a con­vey­or belt, even when objects are ori­ent­ed ran­dom­ly. They can adjust to chang­ing envi­ron­ments, and can avoid obsta­cles in their paths. 

Depend­ing on the require­ments of an appli­ca­tion, chances are, there is a robot equipped to get the job done.
