What to consider on New or Used Robot 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 is so powerful and so ready to change everything.
Elements to consider when installing new or used robots:
- Choose a new or used robot according to the payload required
- The mechanical and electrical installation of the robot and its 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.
New and used Robots Integration
When considering automation, you should ask the question “What are our goals?” By identifying goals before starting the process, the company can determine if automation is the 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 fit their current and future needs.
Project Management for new and used robots integration
Managing all the phases in a systems integration or installation of the new or used robots is an involved process. From the design and installation, 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.
The future of robotic automation systems is here with new technologies. It could be the start of a new era of working with robots cooking, robot serving food, robot surgery, or what about robots in the construction, lawyers, architecture design? Who knows what else we will hear about working with robots in the near future!
Manufacturing robots refers to a common practice of automating repetitive, tasks across the manufacturing process. The company objective is to reduce manual errors, increase production tasks and save costs.
Robot milling can now replace a machine tool in certain applications, bringing a high level of flexibility to use different tools in the 3D space. Robots are capable of producing the highest quality complex and unusual geometries parts. For example, robotic milling systems can have flexible tooling for specific material removal.
