Industrial Robot

What is an industrial robot?

An industrial robot is a type of automation typically used in manufacturing and that should be enclosed, separate from a human worker. With anything upward of 3 programmable axes, typically industrial robots feature six axes and can be integrated into systems that can feature many more, all programmable through the robot control.

Programming robots can be complicated and may require a trained robotic engineer such as those at Bauromat, although, with some simple training, these robots can very basically be controlled. Many robot manufacturers also provide regular training on specific features of their models, together with Bauromat ensuring the customer is confident in their product. 

Industrial robots are incredibly robust, made from steel and with long life motors, they can be used in almost any industry and can do almost any job. Their robust nature also makes them extremely long-lasting, with the average robot lifespan easily over 10 or 15 years if not longer. 

The diverse nature of these robots means that whatever application you are considering automating there is a robot that will be suited to your needs. From large handling applications, welding and assembly, to pick and place, machine tending and inspection, robots of all shapes and sizes are available.
