There are many potential benefits of incorporating a robot into production. A robot can help with cost savings, improve quality, alleviate safety concerns, and increase throughput. Throughput can be increased in two different ways. First, with a robot, you don’t rely on the operator to drive the work rate of the cell. With a robot, it runs at the same pace day in and day out. This eliminates the variability the can sometimes exist with human operators. Second, you can shorten the cycle time. But there could potentially be some challenges with this.
