Manually Moving Materials from One Location to Another?

Material Handling is the movement of goods and materials from one location to another, often referred to as “pick and place”.  The most common material handling applications that you’ll find on the production floor are packaging, palletizing, transferring, and sorting.  These activities are extremely repetitive and manufacturers are regularly challenged with labor shortages and ergonomic issues making them ideal applications for automation.

Evaluating your material handling needs can be difficult.  Automation Inc can help you with the integration of components such as robots, sensors, cameras, and end-of-arm tooling to replicate your process and eliminate labor and ergonomic challenges in the cell.

Manufacturers are seeing the following benefits after automating their material handling applications:

  • Reduction in physically straining or repetitive work

  • Increased productivity regardless of existing labor shortages

  • Consistent product handling throughout all shifts

  • Rapid response to workflow changes as the cobot can quickly be re-programmed and redeployed

We understand the challenges you’re facing and can guide you through your automation project, setting your material handling applications up for success.  We’ll help you evaluate your processes and select the mobile robot and equipment that best fits your workflow requirements.
