Now is a great time to invest in Robotic Automation
According to the International Federation of Robotics, robot sales have increased more than 45 percent in the last five years. More and more companies, across all industries, are looking to robotic solutions to increase manufacturing capacity, reduce costs, and improve worker safety.
Below are five reasons to use Robots in Manufacturing:
- Efficient – Robots create efficiencies all the way from raw material handling to finished product packing
- Programmable – Robots can be programmed to operate 24/7 in lights-out situations for continuous production
- Flexible – Robotic equipment is highly flexible and can be customized to perform even complex functions
- Competitive – With robotics in greater use today than ever, manufacturers increasingly need to embrace automation to stay competitive
- Cost Effective – Automation can be highly cost-effective for nearly every size of company, including small shops
Today’s industrial robots are smarter, faster, adaptable and collaborative, but how do you choose which one is right for you?
As you evaluate which process in your manufacturing environment you want to target for a robotic application, be specific about the problem you want to solve and consider all of the cost reductions a robot can provide: minimizing waste, creating efficiencies, increasing production volume, improving safety or reducing labor costs. These cost reductions can serve as the basis for your ROI criteria and will often be important factors in determining if a robot is right for your designated application.
