Over 30 Years Developing
Automotive Automation Manufacturing Systems & Processes
Robot automation is a critical technology in the automotive industry, as it enables faster, safer and more efficient production of vehicles. The automobile industry has historically been one of the earliest and most enthusiastic developers of industrial robotic technology, and this trend continues today. In some form, robots are utilized in practically every aspect of automotive manufacturing and it still remains one of the world’s most automated supply chains.
Robots can perform tasks such as welding, painting, assembling and testing that would be difficult, dangerous or tedious for manual labor. Robot automation also reduces the risk of errors, defects and waste, improving the final product’s quality and consistency. Robot automation is used in various stages of the automotive manufacturing process, from design and prototyping to assembly and inspection. Some examples of robot automation in the automotive industry are:
- Collaborative Robots (Cobots) work alongside human workers to assist them with lifting, moving and installing parts
- Industrial robots that operate independently or in coordination with other robots to perform complex or repetitive tasks such as welding, riveting and screwing
- Mobile robots that transport materials and components between different stations or warehouses in the factory
- Vision-guided robots that use cameras and sensors to detect and manipulate objects with high precision and accuracy
Midwest Engineered Systems has experience developing and implementing factory automation systems that can manipulate large components, perform welding operations, and more.
