The dawn of industrial robots in the manufacturing landscape has been a game-changer for many industries. Today, industries of all sizes, big, medium, small, across all fields, are investing in this technology. Why? Because robots offer indispensable value to your business. They increase your speed, efficiency, productivity, and profitability. In recent years, industrial robot manufacturers have shifted gears in their production. They’re no longer focusing on production for the ‘giants’ in the industry; they’re now considering small businesses as well. Here’s how. Cutting down the costs of robots Since their integration into manufacturing industries, most small enterprises have shunned this technology due to its cost. But what they don’t understand is that the price of industrial robots has been plummeting by the year. Today, industries can get new, high-quality robots for as low as $25,000, and lower for a used one. Moreover, with the continued development in the Cobot industry, this trend is only expected to continue. So, small industries can now accomplish even that intricate automation tasks on a very friendly budget. Increasing the robot’s capabilities After cutting down costs and increasing profitability, the next best thing for business owners is having flexible workers. Workers who can effectively accomplish different tasks simultaneously. And this is what robots offer. Robot manufacturers are increasingly developing robots to adapt to the various industrial tasks in production. For instance, automotive robots can do more than just assembly. They can be used for machine tending, screwdriving, welding, material handling, and CNC, among others. This means that even when the production design changes, the robots can easily be deployed to a new production area, and remain productive. For small and emerging industries, this helps address the labor issues and ensures faster productivity and flexibility in production – which is the competitive edge they need. […]
