Not yet decided whether adding a robot to your process could boost your competitive edge?
Here are ten of the benefits you can enjoy by using robots once you add…..
Reduced operating costs
Robots enable you to reduce direct and overhead costs, making a dramatic difference to your competitiveness.
- Take energy for example, With no requirement for minimum lighting or heating levels, robots offer a great opportunity to cut your energy bills.
- Labour cutting cost , you can reduce 4 labours to 1 labour using 1 robot , that way you can save & cut cost of the following:-
- Salaries preparation & annual increments
- Insurance ,
- Traveling tickets & visa fees “if the labour is expat”
- Sick leave
- Transportation costs
- Avoiding government taxes
Increased production output & shorten the cycle of procution
Robots can work 24 hour / 7days and where it can be left running overnight and during weekends with little supervision, so you can increase your output levels to get more profit and meet customer order deadlines.
A robotic solution will not need time away from production for breaks, sickness, distractions or lapses of concentration. Robots can now also be programmed offline, ensuring new production processes can be quickly introduced for faster production
Improved product quality
The inherent accuracy and repeatability of robots means you can achieve a consistently high quality finish for every product produced. Robots eliminate the problems associated with tiredness, distraction and the effects of repetitive and tedious tasks.
Increased product manufacturing flexibility
Robots can add flexibility to your production line. Once programmed, they can easily switch between processes, helping you to meet changes in product design or customer demand with the minimum of effort.
Reduced waste and increased yield
By using robots, you can vastly increase the quality of your products. You will have more products finished on the first run to the standard required by your customers, and reduce the amount of breakages and waste produced as a result of poor quality or inconsistent finishing. With products being produced to such a high level each time, you will gain greater yields.
Improved health and safety
Robots can readily take over unpleasant, arduous or health threatening tasks that may be currently undertaken by manual workers. By using robots, you can decrease the likelihood of accidents caused by contact with machine tools or other potentially hazardous production machinery or processes. They can also help to eliminate ailments associated with repetitive or intensive processes.
Reduced labour turnover and recruitment difficulty
The high precision demanded by today’s industrial processes requires the highest levels of skill and training. With highly-skilled manual workers becoming harder to find and more expensive to employ, robots can provide an ideal alternative. Once programmed for your process, robots are ready to begin work with none of the costs associated with recruitment or ongoing training. Robots can also offer greater flexibility, both in terms of work patterns and the ability to handle different production tasks.
Reduced capital costs
Using robots to achieve faster, more efficient production lines can help reduce capital costs associated with inventory and work in progress. By moving products faster in production, businesses can better predict the production rate and ensure a fast and efficient service is delivered.
Robots can be mounted in multiple configurations to help you save highly valuable space in manufacturing areas. They can also be programmed to work in confined spaces so you don’t lose valuable floor space.
Work in hazard environment
Robots can work in different hazard zones in any industry . It has proven performance in working with forging industry in front of furnace , it also working in high toxic environment as well
You set yourself at the cutting edge of your industry and wow & attract your customers when they come to see you. As a marketing tool robots are fantastic, boost your brand image, and have often been used simply for the PR even if they don’t offer many benefits over a bespoke non-robotic system.
As this list has shown, robots are financially affordable and offer long-term savings, plus a raft of benefits, including improved quality ,increased production , efficiency , improved health & safety.
Robotic automation presents an increasingly attractive option for today’s companies looking for ways to balance enhanced competitiveness against tightening costs and spiraling overheads.
