Automation has become one of the essential building blocks for any manufacturing company. It saves money and helps eliminate hazards within the workspace. One of the most common practices which should incorporate automation is cutting installations. Automated cutting installations provide a high accuracy, cost-effective way to cut and shape materials without subjecting workers to dangerous components.
Robotic cutting is an automated process of shaping or removing material. This process is high in accuracy, speed efficient, and quite cost-effective. This is why industries have been evolving their workplaces to involve these robots and their applications. It provides the necessary criteria to increase overall efficiency and helps eliminate any hazards workers are subject to when near cutting installations.
Dispensing is one of the many tasks that a robot can do. There are several aspects that need to be understood before selecting a good dispensing robot. Let’s go through them to try to make things clear.
When assembling a part, some of the most important components to consider are the connections and joints. If the joints are weak, the whole structure will be weak. Heat Staking is the process of melting a boss from a plastic component into the hole of another component. The heating process can be accomplished using different ways such as hot air, ultrasonic system, or contact heating element.
According to an Allied Market Research report, the global market for packaging robots is set to reach $4,649 million by 2023. Clearly, packaging is an important aspect of the manufacturing industry.  Apart from protecting the product, packaging also improves the marketing of the product itself and its company.
Industries throughout the world have begun evolving their workspaces to include robotic automation. Often, in large-scale manufacturing environments, these robots perform repetitive or dangerous tasks with little to no error. In any manufacturing environment, it is essential to find a high accuracy, speed efficient way to shape or cut materials and products. In turn, this will save money, keep the manufacturing process steady, and eliminate any hazards workers would be subject to if they were to operate the cutting equipment themselves.
The metal industry is one of the biggest revenue-generating industries in today’s economy. It impacts various end-user applications and caters to a vast range of sectors: agriculture, automotive, medical, aerospace, construction, electronics, and many more. As it is such a huge industry, it needs automation to meet the standards and production rate of the demanded supply.
Thanks to the first section of this blog, we know that part-entry accessories are a great complement to an industry’s automation because they make it more profitable.Next, we will look at part entry accessories when bulk feeding is not an option, and when a feeding mechanism is not restricted by the shape and size of the parts. So let’s get into it:
According to the RIA (Robotic Industry association), in 2016, 34,606 robots were installed in North America alone. The main purpose of having robots in an industry is to reduce laborious, repetitive, and dangerous tasks. But to perform what they are intended to do, robots need material and parts to be fed in. This is where part entry accessories come into play. Automating this step helps industries utilize their workforce in other, more productive work.
Sometimes it’s better to break down complex words to understand their meaning. Let’s do that with the word: Machine-Tending. The first part of the term is Machine. We probably all know what the definition of a machine is. As for the second part of the term, tending refers to the act of carefully providing for someone or something. So, those two words together and in the context of industrial automation, refer to the loading or unloading of parts or material on a machine.
