Counting, labelling or separating parts in a conveyor can be tedious and unhealthy, and the staff may be at risk. Therefore, material handling robots, as well as palletising robots, can automate this unhealthy task in a production line with not much effort.
When we talk about material handling, it includes a wide variety of handling products on the factory facilities. Example: pick & place robots, palletising robots, robots packing, and machine loading, and more are considered material handling products.
For this robot process, it is important to consider some key factors when investing in handling robot systems. Even though a robot integrator task is to help companies in the automation throughout the entire process, you need to be aware of these factors. For example, see below:
Key points to consider for Handling Robots
- Robot payload
- Reach of the robot
- Tool at the end of the robot (End of arm tooling or grippers)
- Floor plant space
- Facility layout
- Part to be handled
- Robot cell design
- Control panel
Robot Store integrates material handling robot systems. In other words, we help to choose the right robot for your application as well as put all automated equipment together to facilitate the automation process and warranty the effectiveness of the system.
As the industry overview said: “The ability to simplify and decrease time consumption in production functions while enhancing dependability, accuracy and the involvement of low task force is the additional market drivers. The development of the material handling robotics market is expected to rise due to the suitability and the substantial cost reduction offered by these robots.” Click here for more.
Material Handling Manufacturing Process
Likewise, it is essential to know some of the handlings processes for manufacturing tasks.
- Dispensing Robots
- Injection Moulding Robots
- Pick and Place Robots
- Machine Loading Robots
- Machine Tending Robots
- Order Picking Robots
- Packaging Robots
- Palletising Robots
- Part Transfer Robots
Robotics is helping the manufacturer develops products and packaging configurations to tailor its requirement. Although some robot applications require a detailed design most of the handling applications are straight forward. For example, palletising robots cell is easy, while pick and place robots require proper thought on the design. Moreover, there another piece of equipment to consider.
Such as vision technology, software and gripper facilitate robotic handling from very large and heavy to small and delicate. Also, big parts require specific payloads to move them successfully and repeatability within work cells.
Robot Store provides new industrial robots – new robots, or second-hand robots – at a good value from any brand manufacturer, for example, ABB, FANUC, KUKA Yaskawa Motoman, and Universal Robots. Additionally, we can help to customise your robot handling by providing the robot integration, programming, training or simulation.
