Using robots to enhance Lean manufacturing

Processonline.com staff recently explored the numerous benefits of robots to the lean manufacturing efforts. Robotics capabilities have only increased with time, while costs have continued to fall. Major robot manufacturers are constantly upgrading their robots with increased payload capacity, greater accuracy, increased reach and range of motion, improved speed and acceleration, faster communication with external equipment, better safety features and lower operational costs. With a lower cost, more capabilities and a large number of successful manufacturing implementations, robots can increase return, improve quality, reduce costs and help eliminate waste.
