“TOP 5 REASONS” Why Robot Systems can benefit your business?

Robot Systems integration
Robot Systems Integration

Robotic Automation as the Collaborative robots are a hot topic in manufacturing today. Some of these new robots are Universal Robots, Rethink Robotics, KUKA and ABB. They are hitting the marketplace and bringing robotics to small shops and factories.

The robot industry itself generates 170,000 to 190,000 jobs worldwide, including the support staff and operators, another similar number of people. There are three other types of robot application where robot systems create or preserve jobs. When can robots do the job?

  • When the product require satisfactory precision, consistency and cost.
  • Where the current work conditions are unsatisfactory, but where a robot will operate.
  • Where a high labour costs is threatened by a unit in a low labour cost area.

Phoenix provides the time, talents, technology to optimize your robotic automation process. Ou robotic systems integration experience will ensure the best robotics solution four business.

  1. Increase productivity while maintaining quality.
  2. Significant Savings- Offering quick returns on investment via increases in productivity and efficiency.
  3. Improve Quality by providing consistent, repeatable results.
  4. Safety – Industrial automation effectively improves workplace safety and protects workers from injury.
  5. Robot systems Integration can endure extreme environments and work around hazardous substances.
  6. Competitive Edge. In order to survive and thrive in today’s volatile global economy, businesses must remain competitive.

The automation of the fourth industrial revolution is accelerating: By 2018, around 1.3 million industrial robots will be entering service in factories around the world according to the survey from IFR .

Robot service is the next generation that will be used in industry, but some may probably become “Consumer products”. Therefore, this implies major new manufacturing activity. As quantities will be large, and precision and consistency are critical, this new manufacturing is going to need robotics. Alongside this is the employment of a whole new workforce.

What the experts in Robot Systems says?

“Today there are more opportunities than ever before in the robot industry,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. “The continuing growth in robotics is opening many new job opportunities for people who can program, install, run, and maintain robots. In fact, if you look closer at the jobs discussion, robotic automation is helping to save and create jobs.

 

“The robotic boom is laying down an important milestone in the realisation of the fourth industrial revolution”, says Joe Gemma, President of the International Federation of Robotics… Further impetus is coming into the form of the technological breakthrough in human-robot collaboration: Robotics workers will in future be found working hand-in-hand with human staff, helping to replace traditional, rigid production processes with flexible structures.”

What to consider on New or Used Robot Integration?

Used robots integration

New and used Robots Integration

Used Robots are more popular and affordable each year.  What is your Industry – Automotive, medical, maritime, manufacturing, logistics, construction, infrastructure, mining, oil and gas, military, hospitality, consumer, airborne, security, and transportation?. Do not worry, new or used robots cut across every industry. This technology so powerful and so ready to change everything.

When considering an automation, you should ask the question “What are our goals?” By identifying goals before starting the process, the company can determine if an automation is a right solution. Those goals may include improved throughput, increased quality or simplified training for robots operators. Once a company identifies the challenges and goals, then it’s important for operations to choose the right new or used robots that best fits their current and future needs.

Elements to consider when install a new or used robots:

  • Choose new or used robot according to the payload required
  • The mechanical and electrical installation of the robot and it’s commissioning.
  • The end of arm tooling and electrical installation
  • The Cell control panel with or without PLC and HMI.
  • The mechanical, electrical installation and testing of the cell control panel, guarding, safety systems, fixtures and part transfer systems
  • The workpiece fixtures of the parts and exiting the finished parts after the robot operations.
  • The cell guarding and operator access
  • The programming for the robot operations
  • Standby during production run-up
  • Training and Preventive maintenance

All these terms seem complicated but Phoenix will guide you through the automation process. We can do a complete installation or if you prefer to do some of the work to reduce cost, we will be more than happy to supervise the works you are able to do.

Project Management for new and used robots integration

Managing of all the phases in a systems integration or installation of the new or used robots are an involved process. From the design and install, to test and commissioning, all the various tasks will be managed until the completion of the project. Our project manager will carefully plan and schedule the complete process from start to finish to manage all the details and carry out quality checks throughout the different phases of the project, liaising with you the client at each stage.

Why you should invest in robotics & robot automation?

Robot automation & Robotics equipment

Robot automation & robotics equipment are easier to calculate the Return on Investment (ROI)  than when you are investing in share or stocks market.  In fact, we can say that manufacturing is probably losing money if they don’t have robots in their automation process.

By 2019, more than 1.4 million new industrial robots will be installed in factories around the world. The strongest growth drivers for the robotics industry are found in China. So says the 2016 World Robotics Report, as published by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR).

The current global leader in industrial robot automation is South Korea (478 units), followed by Japan (314 units), Germany (292 units) and USA (164 units).  See more Survey: 1.3 million industrial robots to enter service by 2018

Lower levels of robot automation investment among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) may be due to the concerns over the costs, although the falling cost of robotics technology may make automation more accessible to small and medium companies.

In which areas your business has the greatest opportunity for future investment in Industrial Robots & robotics equipment?

Manufacturing parts see an opportunity for automation, many others areas such as assembly, packing, machine loading and palletisation are also increasing. Therefore, these and others applications are increasing each year.  Companies may have the opportunity to invest where there is greater potential to increase productivity.

Why more and more companies are investing in robots?  Big enterprises as Google Inc. has been acquiring multiple robotics companies for over two years, but Google is primarily an online adverting company that trades. Others big enterprises as Apple Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. are interesting, but not pure investment plays in robot automation.

Companies would like to have more information from suppliers about how automation will improve their business before their invest in robot automation or any robot equipment, Phoenix would provide you the most recent information to help you to take this very important decision.

Where does automation have the biggest impact?

Sectors indicating the highest levels of robot automation are heavy industry, medical devices and building products. Our economic also highlighted different between UK manufacturing sub-sectors.

robot automation

What areas will impact on investing in robot automation or robotics equipment?

There are a numbers of areas that will increase when investing in robot or robotics equipment, some of them are:

  1. Productivity and quality of the products
  2. Consistency with minimum or none errors
  3. Better cycle time of manufactured the products
  4. The number of health and safety issues
  5. Increased waste created by the operation of the business

Our economic suggests increased in automation would not only have a positive impact, but would also safeguard manufacturing jobs in the future and it would also benefit in creating new jobs opportunity in others related industries. People perception is that increasing automation has a negative effect in manufacturing workforce.

Robotic Systems main components

It’s time to buy a robot? There are three main robotic systems components to consider when you decide to buy an industrial robot. As the digital economy continues most businesses realize they need to keep their company agile and flexible. Adding robotic systems is a great way to accomplish this, as it’s fairly simple to change the robot’s settings to do what you need it to do and remember that you want to overestimate your needs to allow for future expansion and changes in production. See also robotic welding.

Robotic systems main components

Controller

Every robot has a computer, which keeps the pieces of the arm working together. This computer is known as the controller. The controller functions as the “brain” of the robot and the controller also allows the robot to work together with other machines, processes, or robots.

Robots have controllers that are run by programs. However, the robot program is a set of code’s instructions. Today, people program the robots and they do only what they are asking to do at the time and nothing else. In the future, controllers with artificial intelligence could allow robots to think on their own, even program themselves. This could make robots more self-reliant and independent.

Manipulator Arm

Many robots resemble human arms, and have shoulders, elbows, wrists, even fingers. This gives a robot lots of options for moving, and helps it do things in place of a human arm.

In order to reach any possible point in space within its work envelope, a robot needs a total of 6 degrees of freedom. Each direction a joint can go gives an arm 1 degree. As a result, many robots of today move in at least 6 ways.

Teach Pendant

Teach pendants are typically handheld devices to program the robot step by step. All robots manufacturing have their own teach pendants models.
