Robotic automation is used for pick and place functions and other operations in a wide range of industrial applications. Robots boost productivity and efficiency by performing at extremely high rates, with greater accuracy than manual labor. Companies are discovering that robotic automation is also ideal for tasks that would put an employee at risk for strain or injury. In order to successfully implement robotic automation, however, it is important to remember that a reevaluation of the entire work flow will be necessary. Implementation of the right conveyor systems is essential in effective robotic integration.
In order to reach the full potential benefit of the robotic capability, the conveying systems used must match the high degree of repeatability and accuracy of the robot. Conveyors that are customized and integrated to work within the robotic system assure processes flow smoothly and that peak productivity will be achieved and maintained. A robotic system with customized conveyors will assure that the space within the work cell is most efficiently used, and that the system is designed to handle the weight and dimensional requirements of the material that will be handled.
A customized conveyor system can also be designed to provide complete control system integration with the robotic system. An experienced robotic integrator will not only determine the best robotic automation technology for a particular operation, they will also develop a complete material handling system and work flow that facilitates the optimal robotic system performance.
