For more than two decades, ABB Robotics has been designing part transfer robots that are able to perform a variety of tasks. One of those tasks is to deal with one of the most dangerous part transfer applications for human workers, press tending. ABB part transfer robots offer manufacturers a safer, more cost effective part transfer application every time.
Press tending has been one of the most dangerous part transfer applications for humans in history, as mentioned above. During the Industrial Revolution, and even up through the 1900s, human workers were getting limbs smashed and mangled in press machines. When the ABB part transfer robots, along with those from other companies, came along, it took the possibility of injury off the table for human workers, raising the level of safety in a shop dramatically.
By improving safety conditions, ABB part transfer robotics have also demonstrated their cost effectiveness. Part transfer robots from ABB do not need sick days, they are not at risk of injury, and they do not even need breaks to fight fatigue during the work day. Instead, they are able to continue to run, non-stop for 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This improves the speed of the production line, which cuts down on time and labor costs, making it a more cost effective part transfer method.
