Making material handling robotics work for you


So, your manufacturing facility has been growing over the last few years, and all of a sudden, your supply can’t keep up with the demand for your company’s product. What do you do?

Automate, of course!

Efficiency and adaptability are so important to manufacturers when it comes to mass customization and production. Material handling robots have the speed, payload capacity, decrease in errors, reduced cycle times, and consistent productivity for any job.  Material handling robots are the perfect contender for any part transferpick and placepackaging, or order picking application.

Another huge advantage by using material handling robotics is that workers are relieved from jobs that are tedious, fatiguing, dull, and many times dangerous or injury-inducing. Improving working and safety conditions through the use of material handling robotics also reduces employee downtime, saving on labor costs. 

Material handling robots are one of many bright spots in the robot field- they have already conquered many different industries, from food, to biotech, to automobiles. With the wide job varieties, there are a few things to think about when deciding which material handling robots are right for your application. Manufacturers should consider payload and speed requirements, end-of-arm tooling or grippers required, floor space and the layout of the facility, the type of material being handled, and any additional possible production problems.
