The world has seen a significant rise in automation in recent years, and industries across the board have been impacted. Although every industry has reacted differently to changing technology, manufacturing has embraced automation, making processes faster, smoother, and cheaper in the long run.
Robotics offer impressive developments in manufacturing. Robotics take automated systems to the next level – they not only automate processes but can also replicate human actions entirely.
This growing robotics technology is changing the way manufacturers carry out processes such as wet blasting. As you plan what’s next for your wet blasting systems, consider these 7 ways automated wet blasting with industrial robotics can improve your operation significantly.
1. The Entire Process Can Be Programmed
Start to finish, robotics allow the entire wet blasting process to be programmed. Robots are installed at our factory for your convenience and come fully integrated with our automated systems including shuttle and rotary configurations. This creates a precise and repeatable wet blasting process.
2. Robots Improve Precision And Repeatability
Process automation robotics don’t just make the process faster – they also make the end result better. By taking the possibility of human error out of the equation, wet blasting becomes precise, consistent, and repeatable. You’re able to program the processes in advance based on exact needs and specifications, and the robotics will take it over from there.
3. Robotics Are Not Limited to One Process Per Machine
Wet blasting isn’t one-size-fits-all – different parts will require different processes, each of which need to be done accurately and efficiently. Fortunately, a robot can be programmed to perform potentially hundreds of different processes, and you can easily select whichever one is needed at the time. And because it’s all automated, you can rest assured that each part will receive wet blasting consistent with the other parts of its kind.
