When developing automated systems certain processes might be too complex to justify developing handling automation from scratch. In these cases robotics often provides flexible and efficient handling solutions. Industrial robots are available in a wide variety of styles including Cartesian, SCARA, and Multi-axis arms; Franklin has the experience to recommend and integrate any style of robot into your process. Compared with custom solutions, robots provide an additional level of flexibility that allows for easy integration of changes to products or tasks. This flexibility also permits robots to further optimize your investment by combining tasks and functions of multiple elements within a system. Furthermore, technological advances and wide acceptance of robots in manufacturing have reduced the cost to deliver, integrate and maintain robots as part of your manufacturing system.
