Material Handling robots 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. Whether you decide to install a new robot or used industrial robots there are many elements to take into consideration.
Elements to consider on Robot material handling operations
- Floor space or facility layout
- End-of-arm tooling
- Type of material handled
A good robot integrator helps you to choose the right robots based on the company’s requirements and robot application. They understand the market and the integrator can provide different options.
Industrial robots make a perfect partner for any kind of robot application. Some applications need more design and they could be more complex than others, but you will keep competitive.
Industrial Robots Advantages
Some of the advantages of material handling robots are: less congestion, timely delivery and reduce the time of machines due to non-accumulation of materials at the 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.
