The automotive industry is highly competitive—most of the companies that want to stay on top of the competition using automated manufacturing. The automotive collaboration robots ensure that the company exploits the vast opportunities for incremental growth.
The manufacturing robots effectively produce high-quality products which will give your company repeat consumers. Consider the following benefits that you will get when you use manufacturing robots in your plant.
1. High-Quality Products
The manufacturing robots work accurately and with a precision that cannot be achieved by human workers. The collaborative arm is capable of performing repetitive tasks the same way, thus maintaining the consumers’ quality.
It is challenging for humans to have the exact results for repeat processes. Collaborative robots can be used for all production processes.
The collaborative robotic arms can be deployed to perform various tasks simultaneously. A single robotic arm can handle tasks that could be done by several human employees. The manufacturing robot does not require a monthly salary. Using manufacturing robots reduces the cost of production, thus increases production returns.
3. Enhances Safety
Manufacturing robots work alongside human workers. Cobots improve the output and consistency of human workers. The robots also relieve the human employee to perform more critical tasks. The manufacturing robots better serve tasks which are dangerous and can cause injuries to human workers.
Manufacturing processes such as painting can cause health problems for human employees. Robots are not affected by strong fumes and do not require medical allowances.
4. Increased Production
The collaborative robots work continuously for 24/7. This consistency increases production, which brings high returns to your company. Increased production will get repeat customers to your business, thus obtaining high returns.
5. Assured Precision
It is not possible for a human being to perform a repetitive task with the same precision. However, manufacturing robots are programmed to perform a repetitive task in the same way. This precision results in products that are of the same quality. The collaborative robots also perform delicate processes with the precision that cannot be achieved by humans.
5. Enhanced Flexibility
The UR manufacturing robots are designed to fit any line of production. The cobots can be deployed in different locations for different tasks. The manufacturing robots are equipped with other applications which allow the robot to move from one job to the next with precision.
5. Easy To Operate
Although manufacturing robots are designed to perform complex tasks, they are easy to use. Most of the operations of the robot are automated and thus requires minimal human control. A person with little experience can use cobots. All that is needed is to move the robot where it is needed and plug it into the cable.
The automated robot requires a minimum human operation which makes it ideal for manufacturing industries. With little training, anyone can operate the manufacturing collaborative robot.
6. Saves on Space
Unlike traditional robots which were bulky, the UR robots are small size and lightweight. The small footprint makes it easy to drop the collaborative robot into an existing production line. It can also be easily mounted on a pedestal or fitted onto a mobile platform.
Universal collaborative robots are ideal for small-size companies that have limited space. The small size robots perform the same tasks that can be achieved by bulky traditional robots.
7. Saves on Production Time
Some production processes are labour extensive due to their nature. Tasks which require heavy lifting can cause injury to human employees. Human beings will also spend a lot of time moving from one job to the other.
The manufacturing robots can comfortably perform unergonomic tasks like screw driving into heavy engine blocks. Roots carry out such operations without strain.
The cobot ensure consistency in the screw driving performance. The automotive customers will be happy for the extreme fast processes, thus bring repeat business to your company.
