Robots have all kinds of advantages in industry. Amongst other things, they enable the automated production of small batch sizes, ease the strain on staff, improve quality standards, and boost customer satisfaction.
Despite the numerous advantages of robots, many industrial companies totally ignore robotics when it comes to finding a straightforward, cost-effective solution to a specific problem. In most cases, this is because it’s comparatively hard to get started when using conventional industrial robots, especially with regard to programming. State-of-the-art lightweight robots, on the other hand, are a far more beginner-friendly solution and are even more flexible in certain respects. The compromises associated with lightweight construction in terms of load-carrying capacity and speed are negligible for many applications and, much of the time, the robots’ versatility makes up for this – not least because lightweight robots also open up the advantages of robots in industry to small and medium-sized businesses.
