Robotic Systems well design is the key to a successful performance on production process. An integrator not only with robot but also to design the cell.

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

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?

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.
