Manufacturing robots

Manufacturing Robots are common in all industries and robot applications such as milling, welding, painting, and palletising just to mention a few

TOP 3 Main Manufacturing Robots Categories

Today, the three main manufacturing robots are (1) Robotic Handling-Transfer Process, (2) Robotic Operational Process (3) Robotic Assembly Process.

Handling-Transfer Robots Process 

Robotic Material-Transfer Process refers to loading and unloading, transferring parts or materials from one place to another, placing parts in more complex operations. Robotic palletising tends to be the more common application, it will require a tool at the end of the robots, this tool is the gripper. Usually, the size and shape of the product determine the gripper that is required.

Robotic Operational Process

Operational Process refers to running operations such as welding, spray painting, polishing, and griding. The robot manipulates a tool at the end of the robot to perform the work. The tool requires is the spindle, a tool build according to the application. For example, for spot welding or mig/arc welding, the robot needs a torch and other components to perform the operation. In the case of painting, the robot needs to spray the part of the automobile part. However, robotics users need to take all these costs into account.

Robotic Assembly Process

Assembly Process refers to robots used in assembly operations. One good example is the car assembly line in the automotive industry.

manufacturing robots

Some assembly processes are not easy to perform by robots and more suitable for workers to carry out. For example, assembly small parts. In this case, the robot required a vision system, which includes sensors to be able to identify the parts. This procedure is not always straightforward because the part needs to be placed in a consistent order on the production line.

How are robots used in car manufacturing?

The automotive industry has a long history of production line robots. This is a very demanding sector and they keep high standards qualities to provide the most secure car to the users.

However, a lot of companies don’t have the background to know the best options from the current marketplace to fully automate a particular process. But, in the case of manufacturing robot systems, it’s important to make the correct choice of the robot from a myriad of possible solutions because not all of them suit all robotic applications. See below some of the most popular manufacturing robots.

TOP Six Industries using Robots in Manufacturing

Car Manufacturing Robots

The automotive industry is well known for its intensive use of industrial robotic systems, the production lines need to be more flexible, efficient, and precise, many enhancements have been made on the production lines to help the workers in their daily tasks.

Aerospace Robots

The aerospace sector continues to grow because of the strong collaboration between the Government. Because of this, robot automation plays a vital role in this industry. Thus, the most common robot applications performed by robots are, for example, welding application, drilling, and dispensing and sealing.

Food & beverage robots

The food industry involves handling an extensive product range, they require flexibility at various levels and they also need to follow the hygiene high standards. For this reason, robotic automation systems provide this sector the opportunity to stay competitive.

Plastic Industry

The plastic Industry in the UK plays an important role in all industries including, packaging, automotive, medical, aerospace and even construction. Due to this, robotic systems meet the requirements for these industries, they are stable, accurate, high-quality parts at relatively faster speeds.

Environmental Industry

The environmental Industry is using robotic systems in their research. They are already proving very helpful in understanding and protecting ecosystems, pollution, and global warming. Once again, robotic systems are helping with this praiseworthy task.

Entertainment Industry

Entertainment Industry is using industrial robots for special effects. However, there are many new niches for robot automation and robotics in areas such as architecture, design, music, and arts. Therefore, studios and entertainment companies are aware of the benefits of using robots.

Why Choose Us?

Manufacturing Robots In Factories

We tend to think of the automotive industry when we consider the use of painting robots. Today, we are seeing a new interest in paint robots for smaller applications.

Milling cell brings a high level of flexibility and accuracy because industrial robots can produce high-quality, complex and exceptional geometric parts.

Robotic welding systems help companies gain a competitive advantage over those companies that have not made the transition to welding automation.

Palletising robots build up layers of products for shipment usually onto pallets. When the pallet is full the operator will remove the completed pallet.

Industrial robots are very useful in automated assembly line operations, improving process efficiency at low operational costs and savings costs.

Robotic cutting and trimming robot application is the process to remove any material to follow a predetermined path.

Types of Manufacturing Robots

robot in manufacturing

There are many types of robotic arms for manufacturing applications with different types of robot configurations.  Among the most popular robots are six-axis robots. On these types of robots, each joint forms one of the six-axis invariably with three main axes providing the main movement in the envelope.  Likewise, the three minor axes providing wrist flexibility. To an extent, the robotic arm simulates the human arm, and with the correct end of arm tooling, you can manipulate objects in the same way as the human equivalent.

As a robot integration company, we are not tied to any particular maker, working with all the most well-known robot arm brands. Our manufacturing robots brands include KUKA Robots, ABB Robots, Fanuc Robots, Yaskawa Robots, and Staubli Robots. When the customer approaches us for the first time, we will discuss their project in detail to understand what the client needs to achieve. The most common questions from users are How are robots used in car manufacturing? Of course, we will answer this question and others and we will recommend the best option from the current market for your specific requirement.

Phoenix can provide both the sale of the bare robot all the way up to a full turnkey solution. Also, we will study your requirements in-depth and offer a solution to maximise the efficiency of your robotic applications.  

Elements to consider when buying
Manufacturing Robot Systems

When purchase a robot arm is essential to consider some elements not only for future expansion of the company.  But also for the best functioning of the robot. See below some of these future robot updates.  Also, check out Robotic FAQ.

  • Robot payload required
  • The reach required
  • The floor space required for the cell
  • Offline programming software for generating the tool paths
  • Is there a preference for the make of robot?
  • Perform a robot Simulation to confirm cycle time and reach
  • Will the robot requires a multi-tasking function for controlling other aspects of the cell?
  • Ensure to include safety systems. For example, the latest generation of zone monitoring to enable a reduction in the guarding area
