Material handling robots can automate some of the most tedious, dull, and unsafe tasks in a production line. Material handling robots enhance the efficiency of your production line and increase customer satisfaction by providing quality products in a timely manner.
The term material handling encompasses a wide variety of product movements on the shop floor. Part selection, transferring, packing, palletizing, loading and unloading, machine feeding or disengaging are just a few of the applications that are considered material handling.
When picking which material handling equipment is right for your facility, you should consider payload and speed requirements, end-of-arm tooling or grippers needed, facility layout and floor space, the type of material being handled and any additional possible production problems.
