Safety is a key to any manufacturing industry. When safety is not a priority in a shop, there are more instances of downtime and production interruptions, due to sickness and injuries. When you use a KUKA laser cutting robot for your cutting application, these types of interruptions can be almost completely eradicated, which improves your safety level, while also improving the level of morale in your factory.
Any time you cut a piece of material, tiny particles surrounding the edges of the material will be released in the air. If you’re talking about food particles or biodegradable particles, that may not be a big deal. But, KUKA laser cutting robotic systems are usually used in metal plate cutting. When metal is cut, very small shards can be released into the air. If a human worker was performing the cutting application close to the work piece, those shards could be breathed into their respiratory system and cause buildup and disease over time.
Another issue that may be a problem cutting applications without the use of robots like the KUKA laser cutter is the issue of workers burning or cutting their hands during the instance of manual application. When choosing a KUKA robotic laser cutter, manufacturers are getting a system that keeps workers back away from the danger zone during operation, which keeps their body away from the heat and possible particles produced during the application process. When downtime is decreased and workers are no longer ill, morale is raised in the shop overall, which is always a good thing.
