Robotics systems for your manufacturing processes to enhance efficiency and productivity

Robotics systems for your manufacturing processes to enhance efficiency and productivity

Auto Control Systems has recently formed a partnership with Universal Robots, a fast-growing Danish company with one of the most advanced robots in the world – robots that are able to work alongside humans without barriers.

UR only recently moved into the Australian market and given Auto Control Systems expertise in this area, it was an easy decision for both companies to form a mutually beneficial business relationship.

Robotics are fast becoming a necessity in manufacturing, assembly and production line facilities. Their use has increased by 76 percent between 2011 and 2012 according to the International Federation of Robotics.

One of the biggest benefits of the UR robots is their programming simplicity. With as little as an hour of training, new movement and activity can be programmed into the robot using an intuitive touch-screen interface. Given this simplicity, low-run activities become more viable where a robotics solution would once have been out of the question.

Another advantage of the UR robot is the fast return on investment it offers. Auto Control Systems can fully install and program a robot for as little as $40,000 – no longer are there the cost barriers normally associated with robot installation. In fact, average ROI for a UR robot is 195 days.

The units are designed for programming to be simple, and numerous case studies have attested to the machines’ easy integration. The units have been described elsewhere as “plug-and-play”, with easy-to-use software and the option of guiding a machine arm by hand and programming this path.
