Robots Transforming Auto Manufacturing

Auto Tech Outlook | Friday, May 14, 2021

When human creativity and flexibility is coupled with robotic precision, the limits in automotive production are infinite.

FREMONT, CA: Robots are dependable in production lines. They also provide supply chain automation to the automotive sector and make it one of the most significant robot users. It’s not easy to develop vehicles because they have thousands of wires and tiny parts. Robots assist in ensuring that each component is where it should be. Here are the various robotic applications in auto manufacturing.

 Robotic Vision

Robotic vision can do actual work because they have the potential to see what they are doing. An industrial robotic arm can have a laser and camera, offering instant feedback and helping highlight any problems. A robot can function offsetting during parts installation because it knows where every part goes. Robots with robotic vision are now being leveraged to deploy windshields, fenders, and door panels because they are accurate than regular robotic arms.

Car Painting

Automotive painting is not easy and harmless. The chemicals created by auto body paint can damage both lungs and skin. These chemicals are very toxic, and while skilled, professional painters can do an outstanding job, labor shortages make it complex to find qualified workers. Robots can get the job done because it entails consistency. Robotic arms can paint precisely, covering vast areas and reducing waste. Robots can also be utilized to spray sealants, primers, and adhesives.

Welding

Giant industrial robots with payload potentials can perform spot welding on heavy body panels. Small robots can weld mounts and brackets with short arms. Robotic tungsten inert gas welders can position the torch the same way. And because of the speed gap and repeatable arc, it is possible to preserve high welding standards in welding jobs. There are also collaborative welder robots that function together with other robots on big assembly lines. They join forces with the handler robots to keep assembly lines operating. The robotic handlers place the panels at precise locations then the welding robots do all the programmed welds.
