Versatility is Key for Assembly Robots

Jun 30, 2013

Assembly robots are very successful at completing tasks quickly and with superior quality. They can be assigned to multitask, reducing cycle times and increasing productivity of the facility line. The way an assembly line robot completes tasks, truly cannot be matched by manual assembly jobs.


Cross-train­ing, as it per­tains to the work­place, is a very impor­tant in today’s job mar­ket. The same can be said for assem­bly robots.

Some­one work­ing in a bak­ery will not only bake bread. They will also be trained to make dough­nuts, bake pas­tries, and dec­o­rate cakes and oth­er con­fec­tions. Some­one who works in a retail estab­lish­ment may learn not only how to help cus­tomers, but also how do inven­to­ry or stock merchandise.

Assem­bly robots are not much dif­fer­ent. They also have the ver­sa­til­i­ty to be used in more than just one way in the man­u­fac­tur­ing industry.

When set up on a low­er vol­ume line, robots can even be out­fit­ted with dif­fer­ent tools to mul­ti­task, per­form­ing more than one appli­ca­tion on a work piece if necessary.

Also, when intro­duc­ing fea­tures like robot vision to the robot­ic assem­bly sys­tem, the sys­tem can han­dle items of dif­fer­ent sizes and shape, instead of hav­ing to stop and repro­gram or rebuild the entire line to allow for dif­fer­ing items.

When assem­bly robot­ics are pro­grammed accord­ing­ly for mul­ti­task­ing, it can reduce cycle times on items and increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of the facil­i­ty line. This increase in speed and accu­ra­cy will pro­duce a supe­ri­or-qual­i­ty item, one that’s qual­i­ty can­not be matched by man­u­al applications.
