Getting the Production Speed You Need


Automation solutions aren’t just something that benefits the bottom line. A well-integrated robotic system can also create opportunities for productivity raises, increase workplace safety, and cut down on production time.

Increase Productivity


Robotic systems have the capacity to increase productivity on virtually any manufacturing line. With the ability to to perform the same task over and over without any breaks (automating repetitive tasks), these robot systems can revolutionize a production line.

Increase Workplace Safety


Industrial robotic systems can also significantly improve safety in the workplace and on the production floor. An efficient system is able to remove human beings from the most dangerous or injury-prone aspects of a manufacturing process.

Improve Cycle Time

Between speed and precision, an automated robotic system is one of the most efficient ways to truly optimize your cycle time. Through rapid, predictable performance, they’re able to cut down on wasted time while increasing a company’s profit margin.

Is Robotic Automation Right for Your Operation?

Are you a small to mid-sized manufacturing operation facing the challenges of low-volume, high-mix production? You may be wondering if robots are right for your operation. Take a look at our Universal Robots guide and answer five questions to find out!

Industrial Robotics FAQ

The simplest way to understand the difference between a cobot and an industrial robot is to see how they relate to humans. In the case of a collaborative robot (or “cobot”), the robot is designed to work alongside humans. It works “collaboratively” with other human workers. An industrial robot, however, is designed to do the job of a human more efficiently. They are able to move much faster and lift significantly more than a human being.

That depends. Robotic solutions may range from large to small-scale. Yet they all have a similar goal in mind: reduce manufacturing costs for your product through automation. The real determining factor will be the return on investment that the robot systems provide. Some robotic applications are able to pay for themselves in a year or less when compared to the cost of human labor. If you want to see what your actual ROI will be, check out our ROI Calculator
