Benefits to DIY Robotics Cells
Our robotic cells come in a range of sizes with customizable panels. Depending on your needs, our experts can develop and design the cell to ensure the robot will operate correctly and effectively. In other words, your robotic cell comes tailored to your specific robotic functions. An example would be adding passages for a conveyor to better incorporate it to your production floor. Our robotic cells also have the capability to house multiple industrial robots or machines, and can also be installed with your own robots in the case where your company is comfortable with a specific robotic brand.
As processes change or improve on a production floor, equipment may need to be installed, altered, or relocated. In the case of robotic equipment, they are traditionally bolted to the ground and meant to focus on one task. To relocate the robot, it would consume a large amount of time and therefore increase downtime. Thankfully, DIY Robotics cells are completely mobile and can account for simple or complex changes in facility disposition. Due to this benefit, it is possible to add new cells to a production line at any moment based on a factory’s needs.
DIY Robotic cells also give the possibility to change the configuration of a cell at any time to match the needs of a changing work environment. This could involve changing the EOAT (end of arm tool) to directly change the function of a robot, or replacing the panels of the cell to incorporate new equipment (a sliding door, a conveyor, etc.). This means that you can use the same robotic cell for various applications.
Robotic cells provide a closed environment for the robot to operate within. This means no human intervention is possible without disabling the robot. According to the accessories added to the DIY Robotics cell (conveyor, drawer, vibrating bowl, etc.), it can also come equipped with additional security components.

As stated above, a robotic cell can be customized to fulfill every need of the robot so it can perform its job effectively and consistently. Since the cell is also a closed system and limits human intervention, a robot can operate at higher speeds which in turn will increase production rates, and therefore improve OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).
