If you are looking for more productivity, high quality or waste reduction, the solution is only one: robotic automation.
ROBOTS INCREASE COMPETITIVENESS
To survive in global market, companies have to focus on supply-chain total costs, products quality, productivity and marketing times: these are the factors that make the robotic a good investment.
To compete with low-cost countries, the best solution is no more the production outsourcing: to extend the supply-chain, with all the logistical problems resulting from this choice, can neutralise the costs saving in short time. For this reason, today, many companies chose the robotic automation to improve quality and productivity.
Speed, repeatability and accuracy are the main benefits coming from robotics. Whether you are speaking of working a component, welding or packing pharmaceutical products, the robots can do the work in the fastest way and get high and uniform quality. That’s why they can be perfectly integrated in almost all phases of industrial processes.
ROBOTS INCREASE PROFITABILITY
Investment on robotic system can be written off in short time. Making a direct comparison with manual work on same production amount, it’s possible to see that a profit on the capital invested for the robotic system is gained after few years. If also the productivity profits, achieved normally by a robotic system, are included, payback time of the capital is even shorter.
Robot prices are cheaper; they can offer not only better performance, quality and flexibility, but can be reassigned according to new production requirements.
ROBOTS ARE FLEXIBLE
It’s possible to use only one robot to do multiple operations, among which cutting, welding and finishing, in order to reduce general cycle time, increase quality and achieve a faster payback of invested capital. In comparison to traditional productive automation, robots offer further benefits such as high flexibility, faster replacement and a more important surplus value to processes when running secondary operations.
Thanks to sophisticated software, robots can be reset off-line, allowing the quick start of new products without being forced to stop the production in progress.
ROBOTS CAN ALWAYS WORK
Robots work 24 hours per day. Robot cells can be very compact and therefore occupy a reduced production space.Robots can operate in extreme environment conditions, such as dangerous areas or clean rooms. In conclusion, robots reduce significantly the operating costs and contemporaneously increase the production.
