Robots offer considerable benefits to the furniture and equipment industry along the production process to improve the quality of the fabricated product. A collaborative robot arm from Universal Robots delivers impressive levels of precision and consistency while reducing your margin of error. There are even more efficiency and quality benefits associated with the implementation of robot arms in the furniture-producing industry:
The production process of furnishings is often still manual work. Flexible deployment of a robot arm to produce individual products like furniture is key to competitiveness.
Moving the robot arm from Universal Robots to new processes is fast and easy and gives you the agility to automate almost any manual task.
Production and distribution of furniture and equipment is labor-intensive, tedious, and physically stressful. Material handling of heavy furniture is one of the main robotic applications to avoid physical burdens for your workers.
The results are more consistent products. This also means improving the fit and finish of your goods while increasing productivity across the production line.
Robots take a seat in the furniture industry
Robots can be used in many aspects of building material production, including bonding, placing, mixing, packaging, all types of welding, palletising, packaging, and much more. A robot will always use exact measurements when mixing ingredients and is extremely precise with cutting and joining of materials.
A robot arm does not lift or carry the same way an employee does, reducing the risk of RSI and other ailments brought about by demanding work roles.
