Automation Using Robotic Arms
Implementing the use of the robot arm becomes an excellent solution
There are some processes where the human being must repeat an operation for 8 hours in a row, this makes it automatically susceptible to making mistakes, it can be some assembly, arrangement of parts, screwing, visual inspection, unit testing, pallet storage, etc. It is on these occasions where the use of a robot arm becomes an excellent solution since it is designed to work 24/7, it does not experience fatigue and it will hardly be misadjusted to the extent of making a mistake.
The two types of collaboratives operated by robots and humans
There are two collaborative types, as their name indicates, these can enter into collaboration with the human thus facilitating their work, or they can act independently leaving processes perfectly finished and prepared for the next station that can also be automated, operated by another robot by company staff.
Robot arm uses for human safety
The robot arms can also be used in those operations where the human being may be in danger, for example places where there is exposure of toxic dust or gases, very high or low temperatures, etc.
The so-called robotic cells are manufactured to enclose a workspace where you do not want the human being to enter, which is why industrial security curtains or industrial security scanners are placed, determining the area that you want to be free from human contact, this security It acts in such a way that if someone tries to cross industrial security, the robot automatically stops to avoid an accident, these are cells where typically the work cannot stop and there could be some risk to the human being.
Some of the most common applications of robots are:
- Pallet filling with final product in different presentations
- Feed a machine
- Make assembly
- Place parts in some assembly
- Inspect large areas with the use of an industrial camera
