What Are The Benefits Of A Robotic Cell?
There are many benefits to using a complete robotic workcell on your shop floor to improve productivity. Most people know that using industrial robots for a manufacturing process can improve product quality, reduce labor and production costs, and decrease waste; but we want to discuss the additional benefits of using a robotic cell to enhance the overall flow and efficiency.
Increased Efficiency and Product Throughput
Robotic workcells are made to allow robots to operate at their full capacity and speed. There are regulations in place that limit the speed of a robot within the presence of a human worker and with the right barriers, this limitation is removed. The layout of these workcells can be customized to your specific application process in order to increase how quickly a part can be completed and moved down the production line. Operators can load and unload parts while another part is being completed within the same workcell area.
Keeping the operator safe is of upmost importance. Robots are powerful machines and can cause serious injury if not handled properly. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to safety equipment: fencing, arc glare shields and dividers, light curtains and area scanners, and emergency stops. Each one of these options offer their own safety features to prevent unnecessary harm and medical bills.
There are lots of workcell options available. The best workcell for your process will be determined by the type of application, size requirements, and overall operation flow. There are pre-engineered options ready for quick installation, as well as, customizable workcells designed to your specific dimensions, configurations, applications or part manipulation requirements.
Having a set robot brand does not necessarily mean you have to use their workcell options. RobotWorx has created its own line of workcells to cater to FANUC, Yaskawa Motoman, ABB and KUKA robots.
You don't have to buy everything new. We offer reconditioned robots and workcells to help save you money without sacrificing efficiency or quality. This gives customers more options when building out their workcell.
RobotWorx has integrated robotic cells for customers for a wide variety of applications. We want you to maximize your operation capabilities, while also improving safety. Fill out one of our online forms or call us directly to start building out your robotic workcell at 740-251-4312.
