A cycle is the interval of time during which a repeated process is performed. Decreased part cycle time is one of the advantages of robot automation. Replacing manual processes with the efficiency of robots leads to increased production and profits.
Part cycle time is influenced by several variables. These include the distance a part must travel, complexity of the cycle, quality of other machinery involved, flexibility and features of the robot, and tooling choices. Cycle time can be simulated with advanced 3D software or more accurately determined with a feasibility study.
Due to our experience with robot integration, RobotWorx can estimate a part cycle time when given specifics on the part and the current process. If you require an exact cycle time, contact our sales department at 740-251-4312 about performing a study of your part process.
