You worry that your screwdriving assembly operation is inconsistent.

生产通常在生产中,螺丝螺旋任务的输出全天都变化。

更糟糕,人们是developing problems like repetitive strain injury (RSI)在结束时执行螺丝螺丝动作后。

Is it time to move to automated screwdriving?

机器人如何与手动螺丝刀进行比较?

The problem with manual screwdriving assembly

当手动螺丝刀的生产问题时,可能很难解决这些问题的根本原因。

为什么生产力在一天内更换?

What causes the persistent quality inconsistencies?

Who is responsible for the situation?

你不想思考你的人民,但你可能会想知道他们是否只是没有正确地完成工作。您甚至可能想知道您是否需要聘请新人来执行螺旋运营。

The need for robotic screwdriving systems

事实是人类并不适合像螺丝刀这样的工作。

Repetitive screwdriving actions are much better suited to robots, which can perform them with a high level of consistency for hours and hours every day.

机器人螺丝刀系统提供了一种改善您的装配行动和人工人员的生活的方法,然后可以将其移动到更有智力金宝博台球刺激,较少伤害的生产任务。

加,the reliability and accuracy of robotic screwdriving systemscannot be surpassed by a human worker over a long shift, no matter how experienced or skilled the person may be.

手动螺丝刀的优缺点

螺丝螺旋装配任务已经由人类运营商进行了几个世纪,因为螺钉是首次发明的(最有可能在古希腊)。

Surely, there are good reasons for choosing manual screwdriving?

Advantages of manual screwdriving

Yes, manual screwdriving does have some benefits including:

  • 灵活性和适应性 -A human can easily adapt what they are doing to suit the changing needs of the assembly task. After all, we humans excel in our flexibility!
  • 能够看到质量问题 -With a human, you get two abilities in one. A person can notice obvious quality defects as they are performing the screwdriving task.
  • Problem-solving —如果组装的一个方面没有出于某种原因工作,则一个人将能够弄清楚错误并解决问题。
  • Can handle imperfect parts —可能影响螺丝螺纹任务的部分中的任何小缺陷都将自然地通过一个人的适应性克服。

手动螺丝刀的缺点

但是,某些关键缺点来自Opting手动螺丝刀:

  • 质量不一致 -人类不是机器人。我们每次都不完全相同的行动。即使是最熟练的工艺品也会随着时间的推移而产生不一致的质量。
  • Productivity fluctuations —我们都知道,在一天的某个时间比其他人更富有成效。这对螺丝装配总是不需要一致的吞吐量,这不是一件好事。
  • 肌肉骨骼问题 -人体尚未进化为每天几个小时进行重复动作。当人类进行重复的螺纹运动时,它最终leads to injury.
  • 无聊-Screwdriving不是一个智力刺激task. As a result, people understandably get bored doing it. And this leads to quality problems.

机器人螺丝刀的利弊

手动螺丝刀的替代方案是选择机器人螺丝刀。由于合作机器人的易于集成应用程序包,此选项现在比以往任何时候都更加访问。

Advantages of robotic screwdriving

使用机器人螺丝刀有各种各样的好处,包括:

  • Full efficiency all the time —Unlike human workers, a robot will run at its full efficiency for the entire time it is operational. And nothing is stopping you from running it 24 hours a day.
  • Consistent quality —A robot will perform the same screwdriving motion exactly the same way every time, producing a very consistent level of quality.
  • 可靠的操作 -机器人螺丝刀比手动螺丝刀更可靠。由于机器人的一致性,长期效果特别明显。
  • Better accuracy —机器人可以将螺钉定位到亚毫米精度下,并将其放置在每次完全相同的位置。

机器人螺丝刀的缺点

当然,任何新解决方案都存在潜在的缺点。机器人螺丝刀的一些考虑因素是:

  • 需要一个机器人 -当然,机器人螺丝刀需要一个机器人。这意味着您需要投资机器人平台。你应该首先确保这是有道理的投资回报。
  • Needs robot programming —所有机器人都需要被编程。当您使用螺丝刀申请套件时,这是一个简单的任务,但机器人不能只是走到一条替补席上并开始螺丝刀作为人类。
  • 雇员不熟悉 -If you haven't used robots in your facility before, your people might be uncertain about it and be concerned that the robot will扰乱他们的工作方式。
  • 潜在的阻力 -这种不确定性可能导致人们抵制将螺丝机器人引入其工作场所的介绍,担心它可能接管他们的工作。这要求您采取主动方法来解释机器人对日常生活的好处。

手动VS机器人螺丝刀:哪个更好?

我现在不可能告诉你手动螺丝螺纹或机器人螺丝刀是否会更好地告诉您您的独特情况。只有您知道自己的操作和满足自动化需求的约束。

If your company makes a completely handmade, artisan product where every screw is always placed in a different location on each unit, manual screwdriving might be the better option due to its flexibility.

但是,如果一致性,准确性和生产力对您的螺钉操作很重要,值得考虑机器人螺丝刀。
