They Can Take The Heat - Foundry Robots

A foundry robot can work in hazardous conditions without being damaged or effected. They help to remove humans form the harmful environment and hazardous materials that are present during this application. Foundry robots are up to the heat challenge and help to successfully complete a wide range of tasks in a more productive and efficient manner.


A foundry is type of fac­to­ry that melts and forms met­al into dif­fer­ent shapes and forms. Because foundries deal with melt­ed met­als, it is often a hot and dan­ger­ous envi­ron­ment for human work­ers, which is why robots are per­fect for the job. Foundry robots are able to work in this haz­ardous envi­ron­ments with­out being affect­ed by the conditions.

Humans have worked in foundries for decades. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the human body is sus­cep­ti­ble to all kinds of issues that go along with high heat envi­ron­ments, like burns, heat stroke and exhaus­tion. Com­pa­nies have devel­oped robots that have spe­cial coat­ings and are able to work in this kinds of envi­ron­ments, allow­ing human work­ers to move to less haz­ardous con­di­tions in the factory.

When robots are able to take over for foundry work­ers, the health lev­el in the fac­to­ry should improve over­all, as should the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of the shop. Because of the con­di­tions, work­ers may move slow­er in the hot con­di­tions, which is not an issue for foundry robot­ic sys­tems. Robots made for foundries are able to work at top per­for­mance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This means that they don’t need vaca­tions or sick time, and man­u­fac­tur­ers do not face the same pos­si­ble slow­downs or pro­duc­tion inter­rup­tions that might be com­mon with human work­ers in a foundry environment.

Do you have a foundry that is beg­ging to be auto­mat­ed? Are you inter­est­ed in learn­ing more about foundry robots and what they can do for your fac­to­ry? If this is the case, then you should give Robots​.com a call. Robots​.com is a cer­ti­fied inte­gra­tor for sev­er­al dif­fer­ent robot­ics com­pa­nies, includ­ing Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, Uni­ver­sal Robots, and ABB. Our staff will work with you to help you find the best robot­ic foundry sys­tem for your shop.
