Automation and robotization of production processes - development barriers

robot paletyzujący

Production automation is a process that focuses on optimize the production process and, as a result, increase efficiency. Historically speaking, production automation has been with us for many years. Recently, it is particularly visible through the popularization of robotics. Even 50 years ago, robotics were reserved for large factories, mainly from the automotive industry, which produced long series of the same products. Robotics today is a wide variety of areas: industrial robots, collaborative robots cobots, mobile robots, service robots. A collaborative robot today plays a special role in universal robotization. Its great advantage is that it is easy and quick to program by intuitively showing what to do. You no longer need to write complex algorithms in complicated programming tools. As practice shows, already several dozen minutes of training will allow anyone to program simple activities on the HCR robot. In turn, a few hours of training will allow you to take advantage of the advanced functions of modern Cobots and connect them with machines or production lines. HCR cobots also provide the opportunity to work safely with people. In the event of unplanned contact with people, Cobot will simply stop and withdraw. As a result, there is no need for him to build safety cages, and in the plant itself it takes up very little space. These features make it a flexible tool even for short- and medium-run production in all production plants.

Production automation - collaborative and industrial robots - costs

Previously used industrial robots required expensive programming, a large amount of space, basement and security cages. This meant that it was used mainly in high-volume production and the implementation process itself was lengthy. On the other hand, production automation based on Cobots provides an easy, fast, precise and efficient tool to strengthen production processes, which returns after 6 months. It’s harder for a better investment. I think that is the key to effective production in such applications as: machine operation [CNC, presses, injection molding machines] and production lines, packaging, screwing, testing and control, palletizing, welding, polishing, gluing, painting and many others where the robotic arm precisely carries out its tasks for 24 hours. The collaborative robot is a response to the emerging barriers to the development of enterprises, even small and medium-sized enterprises of any production nature.

Automation and robotization - applications

We can use collaborative robots in almost any application. Below we show typical applications that are used in various industries.

Robot współrpacujący HCR HANWHA

Unloading and loading machines

Loading and unloading of machines, feeders, packaging, production lines, assembly and processing seats. Loading and unloading operations can be carried out on a single product or, if there is a need to increase efficiency on a package of products arranged in a repetitive geometric form.

Moulding Operations

Loading and unloading injection molding machines, cutting off infusions, quality control of molded parts based on their weight and vision standards, labeling, packaging for collective packaging. The cooperating robot perfectly carries out the automation and robotization of injection molding machines and operations that have been performed by operators so far, implementing them in an accurate and repeatable manner 24/7/365.

Test & Inspection

Tests and quality control are activities that require 100% repeatability and accuracy. Robotic testing and quality control ensures increased efficiency and minimized errors. Particularly important are inter-operational tests, control of the final product, which allows you to precisely control the quality. Each control activity is recorded in the system. And all this in a repetitive way.

Welding

Welding has always required skill, experience and precision. And despite this, welding is a very exhausting process and it is difficult to ensure the quality and performance of the operator in the long run. Cooperating robots based on which welding robots and welding cells are built ensure easy programming of welding paths with the possibility of importing them from CAD / CAM software.

Research & Laboratory robotization

Robotization of laboratories, automation of sample handling and tests allows for precise placement of the tested material in machines, testers, spectrometers or analyzers. Each sample can be labeled, the codes from the labels are read and recorded in the system. And all this in a repetitive way. Our robots are certified Cleanroom class 2, which allows them to work in particularly demanding conditions.

Benefits of automation

Automation and robotization of production lines, implementation of automated production cells increases the efficiency and quality of production. Robotization ensures the automation of a number of activities ranging from handling, transport, assembly, marking, packaging and quality control. An important result of automation is high quality and repeatability of processes. It is worth mentioning the increase in productivity resulting from 24/7/365 work. Robots can support companies with monotonous, exhausting, repetitive and often dangerous works that require concentration and burden the Operators. Thanks to robotization, we eliminate the risk of human errors that affect work safety and product quality. Industrial collaborative robots can be equipped with any tool to implement a variety of production processes. In addition, collaborative robots, thanks to built-in security functions, can work next to people in a small space without the need for changes in the production system. This is a huge advantage when robotizing existing factories and processes. Considering global trends, it should be stated that the automation of production lines and robotization of industry is a necessity today for all sizes of enterprises.
