The decision to invest in automated production is not easy. A large number of variables are involved in the decision-making process and need to be considered and calculated. Nevertheless, even a simple application can bring you many benefits. We found 8!
1. Automation reduces manufacturing costs
Initial investment in production robotization can be high. Before installing the automation technology, the supplier must prepare a feasibility study, propose the most appropriate solution and find the right robot, including additional equipment. After it, implementation and programming takes place. However, if the supplier suggests everything perfectly, you can look forward to a really fast return on investment..
2. Shorter production cycle – robots work fast and without breaks
Time significantly influences production efficiency. Industrial robots work faster than operator hands can do. And let’s be honest – they do not sleep, they are not off sick and they do not need a vacation. All this, of course, provided you provide them with regular professional maintenance.
3. Reliability and accuracy
Human work is irreplaceable in many activities. However, this does not apply to monotonous repeatable work of production lines. Here is the right place for replacement of human power by industrial automation. Automation eliminates human errors caused by fatigue and operational blindness.
4. Safety and no health impact
Safety is related to the previous point. Monotonous work quickly leads to inattention and inattention increases the risk of accidents. By contrast, robots can perform monotonous work even in three shifts. In addition, they can handle hazardous materials without affecting human health..
