Some man­u­fac­tur­ing process­es require unique solu­tions to solve prob­lems that arise. The intro­duc­tion of indus­tri­al robots in assem­bly process­es has great­ly enhanced the abil­i­ty for many orga­ni­za­tions to increase their pro­duc­tion out­put. With the added func­tion­al­i­ty of these auto­mat­ed sys­tems, tasks can be accom­plished eas­i­er and in a more pre­cise man­ner. Despite all of these advances, there are still some lim­i­ta­tions, includ­ing indus­tri­al robots han­dling very small parts. To over­come this obsta­cle, robot man­u­fac­tur­ers have cre­at­ed unique types of robots called spi­der robots. These spe­cial robots have allowed com­pa­nies work with and manip­u­late parts such as small springs, beads, syringes, and oth­er small parts.

It is quite like­ly that not every orga­ni­za­tion will need to use spi­der robots for their fac­to­ries. For those com­pa­nies that deal with small parts, spi­der robot inte­gra­tion decreas­es part cycle times and pro­vide for a much high­er qual­i­ty prod­uct and assem­bly. Spi­der robots allow for extreme pre­ci­sion and accu­ra­cy. Fanucs spi­der-series robots boast repeata­bil­i­ty as impres­sive as 0.02 mil­lime­ters. Because of the pos­si­bil­i­ties cre­at­ed by spi­der robots, com­pa­nies are no longer lim­it­ed by small sized parts.

Spi­der robots also pro­vide ben­e­fits for work­ers in the fac­to­ry. Assem­bling, trans­fer­ring, or oth­er­wise han­dling very small parts can be dif­fi­cult and frus­trat­ing. Imple­men­ta­tion of spi­der robots to per­form this work allows work­ers to gain skills in oth­er areas of the man­u­fac­tur­ing process. More worth­while tasks and appli­ca­tions can be per­formed by work­ers while spi­der robots per­form the monot­o­nous tasks.

Unique prob­lems pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties to devise new tech­nol­o­gy. The need to decrease cycle times in small part assem­bly lead to the devel­op­ment of spi­der robots. As spi­der robots con­tin­ue to be devel­oped and improved, new man­u­fac­tur­ing prob­lems will arise that these robots will be able to solve.
