Assembly robots are used for lean industrial processes and have expanded production capabilities in the manufacturing world. An assembly line robot can dramatically increase production speed and consistency. They also save workers from tedious and dull assembly line jobs.
Material handling refers to robotic arms moving production parts, typically on or off a conveyor belt or to hold a part in place for production. Machine tending is similar, but more specific, referring to a robotic arm to load and unload a stationary production machine.
Robotic-based vision inspection deploys robots with cameras and lighting mounted on the end effectors which automatically move to key inspection points of a subassembly to check specific features.
Loading and Unloading
Machine loading and unloading operations utilize a robot to load and unload parts at a production machine. This requires the robot to be equipped with a gripper that can grasp parts.
Leveraging speed and accuracy, the application use robot to pick electrical components from tray and insert them each into tiny holes of given printed circuit board (PCB).
Pick & Place
Pick and Place robots are used to pick things up from one location and place them in another.
