Factory automation fueled by robots provides many benefits to manufacturing companies, including higher productivity, lower costs, increased worker safety, and improved quality. With robotic systems, manufacturers can experience faster manufacturing times and increased efficiencies, which translates into producing more product in a timely manner. Over time those improved efficiencies lead to cost savings due to reduced waste, lower operational expenses, and decreased hands-on labor. However, employees reap the bulk of the automation rewards. Robots can work in any environment and that includes the very hot, very cold, and very hazardous—workers do not have to be exposed to any of those conditions. In addition, employees can be moved from performing tedious labor-intensive tasks to assignments that offer more engaging responsibilities. Additionally, manufacturers can see improved quality due to consistent product fabrication and quality control systems that use vision systems to continually check for defects.
ABCO has many years of experience in developing and implementing robotic systems. We can provide any form of robotics ranging from application evaluations and turnkey solutions to systems that specialize in flexible robotic work cells for accommodating short product life cycles and quick changeovers. Our project experience features robots that perform:
