Robotic Material Handling

Material handling covers a wide variety of applications and equipment such as palletizers, conveyors, picking/placing etc. Applications for Material Handling can be found in almost all major sectors, some of them being warehousing, parcel delivery, manufacturing and baggage handling.

While almost all automated systems include some aspect of material handling, striking the right balance of method, equipment, integration, premier automation robotic material handlingand Material Handling Programming can be a challenge.

Benefits of Automating Material Handling

Material handling is a task that is prone to several complications, especially if manual operators are involved. Bringing technology into the mix can straighten things out and close-down common loopholes. Robots in particular can assist with the task and can carry out operations such as parts transfer, automated storage, palletizing, etc.

When such processes are shifted to a machine, the ultimate benefits are reaped by the company as a whole. These include:

  • Efficiency: you’ll be able to get more done with fewer resources, while designating your workforce to more sophisticated tasks.
  • Reliability: while human operators are capable of missing up on a few things, robots would carry out tasks as programmed, for an indefinite period of time.
  • Safety: On-site workers would be more secure as all the dangerous tasks such as heavy-lifting would be shifted to the machines.
  • Flexibility: You would be able to cope with seasonal swings in a much better way, rather than reorganizing your workforce time and again.
