Over the next decade, automation technologies will revolutionize the way that the world builds products. Remaining competitive will require a dedication to incorporating new and existing technologies as they increase productivity while reducing cost. Robex provides customizable turnkey solutions to propel businesses into the future.
Why should I use robots?
Every industry is faced with an important decision in the future. Automation is replacing outsourcing as a leader in producing efficiency. As salaries rise overseas and challenges continue to appear, automation promises to cut costs by as much as 22% through 2025.
Robots provide consistent results, allowing you to achieve higher levels of quality. They run on power ad require relatively few works to maintain. Businesses no longer have to risk leaving a safe harbor to stay competitive. Onshoring becomes increasingly possible and can even help alleviate issues with large logistics chains.
What types of industrial automation and RTP are proven today?
There are many types of automation. No robot works on the same tasks. A device that rivets cannot pack or ship.
The types of robots available include:
- Industrial robots for palletizing, picking, packing, and machining
- Collaborative robots that help employees perform complex tasks
- Autonomous mobile robots that transport materials safely between workstations
The history of automation shows that machines continue to supplant repetitive tasks. We are at the beginning of a wave of human-robot interaction.
Supervised Robotics for Industry
Supervised robotics completely supplant tasks under the watchful eye of skilled employees. Many tasks benefit from this type of automation.
Robex provides robots that manage pallets, pick, pack, and even machine products with the help of existing staff. These robots take care of mundane tasks that are not ideally suited for humans. If your processes are repeatable, these robots can easily achieve a repeatable result and help your organization reach Six Sigma.
Human-robot interaction is increasingly common. Complicated tasks require humans. Robots can help your valuable employees perform these tasks safely.
Consider the following automation example. An employee must inspect a component and perform several precise drilling operations in locations that are not predetermined. The worker inspects the component and directs a drilling robot into place which successfully completes the remainder of the task.
This situation is common in customized manufacturing or under strict legal guidelines. Robots can also take on hazardous tasks to improve worker safety.
Full Autonomous Automation
The forklift is a dying breed. These devices, powered by humans, are slow, costly, and prone to breaking down. Fully autonomous systems allow you to transport goods with ease.
By helping pickers quickly assess and transport goods in a well-designed warehouse, autonomous systems literally deliver productivity. Increase the number of goods you produce without increasing your staff.
Benefiting from Different Types of Automation Technology
Automation is the new normal and will continue to reshape economies around the globe. While globalization created efficient supply lines, automation technologies will make production easier than ever.
