With the arrival of Industry 4.0, the global industrial sector has evolved rapidly, integrating state-of-the-art technology into process automation with industrial robots. A wide variety of countries are using these solutions in other industrial fields, such as:
Electronics and Electrical
Industrial robots have been used in the electricity and electronics field; in integrated electronic circuits and chip components, predominating in applications such as classification and packaging, tear film systems, laser plastic welding and high speed palletizing.
Industrial robots are a solution that provide speed, efficiency, flexibility and durability, proving they are ideal for working in high-intensity applications next to an injection molding machine as a machine tool for procedures in the plastics sector, guaranteeing a competitive advantage in the market.
This industry is one of the most difficult in terms of human labor, since workers are exposed to high temperatures, pollution, extreme conditions and environments. Therefore, the use of industrial robots efficiently improves these conditions, reducing costs and achieving greater flexibility and speed in the productive processes, thus optimizing the quality of the product.
The forming procedure is highly intense, with noise pollution, metallic dust, etc. As a repetitive and detailed job, it can be difficult for companies to find workers. The integration of industrial robots and forming machine tools represent a solution that optimizes process efficiency, accuracy and safety. Industrial robots in the metal forming field offer the possibility of integrating the CNC bending machine, stamping press, hot forging and welding.
The use of industrial robots in household appliances has been a necessity due to various causes such as a significant increase in labor costs, a progressive dispersion of demographic dividends, and intensive labor. The benefits that come from the implementation of industrial robots in this area have led to more profitable production, control, measurement and inspection, constant productive tasks without having to handle heavy objects, thus obtaining a productive line in continuous circulation that maintains the optimum quality of the material and product.
Currently, there are industrial and collaborative robots dedicated to these areas that meet requirements for high standards when it comes to cleanliness, precision, high purity and high quality, which are ideal for clean environments known as clean rooms, with cutting-edge technology to carry out processes, and a large market space due to their profitability, low costs and level of protection.
The food and beverage industry is one area that is exposed as a result of the continuity of product handling. Integrated industrial robots, with their advanced technology such as sensor technology and artificial intelligence, can adjust to different operations and perform intelligent control in applications such as packaging, picking, palletizing, etc.
The use of industrial robots in the glass industry has been essential for handling hollow glass, flat glass, tubular class or fiberglass, since the technology integrated with these robots allows them to meticulously handle this material that contains minerals that are important in the electronics, communication, chemistry, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
The industrial robot is used to palletize cigarettes in the final phase of the production line, transporting these finished products with AGV (self-propelled carts), minimizing damage to the product and saving on labor costs. For this type of industry, it is important to acquire a high-level automation system for logistics, as this sector usually has a high margin of error with very little time to meet client needs.
