A resounding YES. Robotic Automation improves overall productivity. It enhances worker’s safety, improves accuracy, and offers exceptional quality control and optimizes workflow. Robotic automation improves production, (reduction of cycle time) and cuts down on waste. Some industries that benefit from Robotic Automation are Electrical, Automotive, Aerospace, Industrial Manufacturing, Healthcare and many more.
Traditional Industrial robots offer high speed and accuracy, large payloads, but require safety measures, such as screening or fencing. They need a defined workspace void of humans.
Programming an industrial robot requires a thorough knowledge of the program.
Collaborative robots offer lower speeds and payloads, but can work side by side with humans therefore not needing safety fencing. Programming a collaborative is typically done by the operator and is much easier to program than an industrial robot.

A standalone robot system comes with a robot controller and teach pendant. Prices typically range from $30,000 to $80,000. Adding additional peripherals to the robot, such as grippers, vision systems, end of arm tooling adds to the cost. Robot systems with added peripherals range from $100,00 to $150,000.
A cartesian robot is considered a gantry type of robot. It moves and operates in three Axis, X, Y, and Z. A cartesian robot only moves within it’s framework ( the lengths of X,Y,Z )
A SCARA moves in the X, Y, Z planes like a cartesian but has a rotation capability at the end of the Z axis. This gives the SCARA the ability to rotate end of arm tooling, but it’s reach can be limiting.
A Six Axis robot offers more control and movement over the Cartesian and SCARA. The Six Axis can move forward and back, up and down, and can yaw and roll. This movement can almost simulate a human arm. The range of arm movement is the greatest of all robots.
