How Advanced Robotics Benefit Manufacturing?

By Manufacturing Technology Insights | Friday, January 24, 2020

Automation drives higher productivity with advanced robots taking over manual tasks like the assembly of flexible parts. The autonomous capability of advanced robots to changing process parameters perks up resilience by eliminating micro-steps that often transpire in con­ventional robotics processes.

FREMONT, CA: The potential to change factory processes has sparked tremendous enthusiasm among manufacturers on advanced robots and, in general, advanced automation. Therefore, the market for advanced robotics is proliferating. 

Firms see advanced robotics as a way to attend to the growing intricacy of their manufacturing operations. Over recent years, there is a dramatic rise in the number of product variations, the occurrence of new product launches, and the demand for customized goods. In the complex operating environment, the capability of conventional automation to meet manufacturers’ requirements for productivity, transparency, and flexibility has reached its perimeter. Alongside, higher labor costs and labor shortages have increased the pressure on firms to automate tasks that humans currently perform manually. Advanced robotics can yield several benefits:

Productivity

Automation drives higher productivity with advanced robots taking over manual tasks like the assembly of flexible parts. The autonomous capability of advanced robots to changing process parameters perks up resilience by eliminating micro-steps that often transpire in con­ventional robotics processes.

Additionally, advanced robots are considerably easy than traditional robots when it comes to installing and reconfiguring if appropriate simulation software is available. Besides, they are also quick at learning how to perform tasks. The swift ramp-up of processes is particularly helpful for production systems, which need frequent adjustments like in response to customization requests or product changeovers.

Quality

Top Industrial Robotics Solution CompaniesAdvanced robots can surpass human workers on a few tasks like assembly, delivering superior reliability and accuracy, thereby improving quality.

Safety

In opposition to the conventional robots, advanced robots can execute more tasks that are physically demanding or dangerous for human workers—operations leading to recurring-stress injuries or jobs performed in hazardous atmospheres. The employment of machine-vision technologies that advance robots’ perception can increase safety, even in fenceless settings.

Agility

Manufacturers can employ advanced robotics in configuring new production systems, which meet the growing demand for customized products, product variations, and product redesigns.
