The world of manufacturing and industrial operations is changing. For small and medium sized enterprises looking to increase their competitive advantage and make the best use of limited resources, exploring business automation is a necessity. Without it, you risk getting left behind as your peers utilize automation solutions to work smart, faster and more cost-efficiently.
Our cobots are designed to help your business remain competitive both locally and globally. They’re highly adaptable, and a relatively simple way to introduce business automation and innovation into your processes. And unlike heavy and more costly industrial robots, you probably won’t need to install protective cages or dedicate as much time to specialized training. Automatic palletizing systems have a small footprint but provide a huge range of options for your business as you grow. For example, you won’t need to take on additional workers to meet seasonal peaks and your stacking patterns can be redesigned in a matter of minutes to accommodate new products.
We are all thinking more about the impact we are having on the planet, and businesses are increasingly being required by law to demonstrate how they are cutting their emissions and reducing harmful waste. Business automation offers one way to enhance your sustainability through waste reduction, more efficient energy usage and reshoring.
Human workers are great, but they simply cannot match the consistency and precision of a cobot palletizer. This means fewer errors and less waste. When it comes to palletizing, this equates to fewer damaged products. Again, the ability to customize your cobot with specialized tools or application kits from UR+ also makes it easier to ensure your robotic palletizing system is operating as efficiently as possible.
It may seem counter-intuitive, but your cobot can also help you reduce your energy consumption. UR+ has a wide range of remote monitoring and access solutions that allow users to track cobot performance from anywhere with an internet connection. From here, the operator can access data relating to every aspect of the cobot’s activities and make adjustments, which helps drive efficiency and reduce unnecessary energy usage.
