Industrial robots are increasingly being used in a variety of industries, performing a wide variety of tasks. The use of industrial robots for the automation of production processes has a lot of undeniable advantages for enterprises.
Elimination of the influence of the human factor in conveyor production, as well as when carrying out monotonous work and solving problems that require high accuracy of movement. Unlike a human, a robot does not make mistakes when performing similar, monotonous operations at a fast pace. High speed sorting and stacking is a rather tedious task for humans. The Vision Delta Robot is ideal for solving this problem, increasing the productivity of the line.
Robot such as conventional palletizer is capable of moving heavy products at high speed, allowing you to effectively solve packaging and palletizing tasks; increasing the accuracy of technological operations and, as a result, improving quality. Improving the accuracy of technological operations and, as a result, improving quality
The positioning accuracy of the robot (tenths of a millimeter) ensures compliance with the requirements for the quality and appearance of products. High accuracy of positioning of robots while maintaining a high speed of movement makes it possible to successfully use robots in operations for welding, processing, cutting materials, assembling products, as well as positioning workpieces for machine tools.
The ability to use technological equipment in three to four shifts, 365 days a year
Modern industrial robots are highly reliable equipment designed for continuous production. If all technical requirements are met, the operating life of the manipulator can be from 8 to 20 years. Many car factories use robots that were released more than 15 years ago, continuing to successfully perform their functions.
Rational Use Of Production Facilities
A robotic arm production system often takes up less space than comparable machine-tool or special-line systems. It is also worth noting that manipulators, unlike machine tools, can be fixed in any position (on the walls and even on the ceiling). The robot can also be equipped with a motion system that allows the arm to handle larger parts or operate more machines.
Delta robots are installed over production lines and conveyors. Placing robots directly above the conveyor belt allows for increased reach and space savings. The use of a rail movement system allows to significantly expand the reach of the robot, allowing you to process large-sized products or many products using one robot
Elimination of the impact of harmful factors on personnel in industries with increased danger
Industrial robots can be used in cases where the production environment does not allow people to perform certain operations. Such dangerous factors can be high or low temperature, unacceptable pressure for humans, lack of air (vacuum), presence of poisonous and explosive impurities in the air, work with explosive and radioactive substances, increased levels of vibration and noise, air pollution with gases, aerosols and suspensions, and etc. An opposite example, which also implies the use of robots, is the so-called “clean rooms” – production facilities with absolute sterility, for access to which a person has to undergo a cleaning procedure. Also, robots can be used to perform operations with an increased degree of risk to humans, such as loading / unloading presses, casting machines and machine tools, handling hot liquids and molten metals.
To protect robots from pollution, low temperatures and high, special covers and casings are used
Economic Benefit From The Use Of Robotic Systems
At the present stage, the cost of purchase and implementation for production for an industrial robot is practically equal to that for a machine tool. But at the same time, the robot is a much more “flexible” investment. Unlike a machine tool, the manipulator can be transferred to another production area to perform a completely different job. This requires replacing the actuator, changing the control program and assembling a new robotic production cell. Also, the introduction of robots allows you to reduce direct and overhead costs of the enterprise, for example, the cost of wages of replaced personnel, electricity (lighting, ventilation), space heating, air purification, and the cost of renting space.
