Robotic Material Handling solutions eliminate the need for manual labour to perform different tasks such as moving, sorting, optimising among others. Robots are very useful for material handling solutions and they can assist in improving business process efficiency at low operational cost.
Some of the applications that are considered material handling are palletising, packing, loading and unloading, part transferring or machine feeding.
Elements to consider on Robot material handling operations
- Floor space or facility layout
- End-of-arm tooling
- Type of material handled
Industrial robots make a perfect partner for any kind of kind of robot application. Some applications needs more design and they could be more complex than others, but you will keep competitive.
Industrial Robots Advantages
Some of advantages of robotic are: less congestion, timely delivery and reduced time of machines due to non-accumulation of materials at storage area. In addition, safe handling of materials is important because it reduces loss, wastage, breakage, and scrap.
Steps to success
The first step towards implementing robotic solutions is to understand why you need to automate a specific process and how to achieve your objectives.
The second step to consult a system integrator that will guide you to customise the existent or new robotic system to maximise the investment and to get a quick return on investment.
