Flexible Manufacturing Lines

Sep 19, 2017

Each year the automation industry continues to innovate and bring solutions that will improve the productivity, flexibility, and efficiency on a wide range of production lines. This is seen with the flexible manufacturing that enables a robot to work on different types of products in the same workcell. Flexible manufacturing lines help to provide an increase in productivity and manufacturing volume.


Auto­mat­ed pro­duc­tion lines now include flex­i­ble man­u­fac­tur­ing that pro­vides the abil­i­ty for robots to work on dif­fer­ent types of prod­ucts in the same work­cell. Flex­i­ble pro­duc­tion lines will enhance the set-up invest­ment longevi­ty, max­i­mize the space, increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, and enable increased man­u­fac­tur­ing volume. 

These inge­nious flex­i­ble pro­duc­tion lines are being installed across the globe, bring­ing a vari­ety of ben­e­fits such as as being able to process mul­ti­ple vari­a­tions of a part with­out man­u­al changeovers. Typ­i­cal­ly, prod­uct revi­sions require a good deal of addi­tion­al floor space; flex­i­ble pro­duc­tion lines remove any need for addi­tion­al equip­ment for prod­uct revisions.

This allows the same line to man­u­fac­ture two dif­fer­ent ver­sions of a par­tic­u­lar com­po­nent in the same cell. A minor change in para­me­ters no longer would require the part to be man­u­fac­tured in a dif­fer­ent cell or a man­u­al inter­ven­tion. Dif­fer­ent parts could flow through the same line, unin­ter­rupt­ed, with alter­nate pro­grams being detect­ed and run in real-time. This means that your exist­ing line could process revised parts while also con­tin­u­ing to man­u­fac­ture the lega­cy version. 

Flex­i­ble man­u­fac­tur­ing lines also pro­vide for rout­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty which is the abil­i­ty for mul­ti­ple robots to per­form the same appli­ca­tion on the same part. At Robots​.com, we offer cus­tomized, mul­ti-robot work­cells based on prod­uct requirements. 

Fur­ther­more, these flex­i­ble pro­duc­tion lines pro­vide for more flex­i­bil­i­ty when there are nec­es­sary changes to the prod­uct vol­ume. Any appli­ca­tion, no mat­ter the size of the robot, will have improved speeds with robots, allow­ing them to han­dle high­er vol­umes and adjust more eas­i­ly to changes. 

Over­all, you can’t go wrong with incor­po­rat­ing a flex­i­ble man­u­fac­tur­ing line onto your floor; devel­op­ing a ver­sa­tile and flex­i­ble pro­duc­tion line will help you max­i­mize pro­duc­tion while also sav­ing valu­able floor space. 

The sky is the lim­it; no mat­ter the size of your com­pa­ny. Bring­ing ulti­mate flex­i­bil­i­ty and a vari­ety of con­fig­u­ra­tions to your pro­duc­tion line is pos­si­ble with the right tools and experts.
