How our industrial robots work
As the industrial robot operates from a single point, this solution is suitable for handling light to heavy products. The industrial robot is highly manoeuvrable and can access everything around its anchor point. Whereas a delta robot can only access products within a circle and is restricted by its three arms, an industrial robot can also reach everything above and below the arm.
Although it is possible to control an industrial robot manually, it can also be programmed to perform tasks independently. This means that an operator can configure the operations to be performed by an industrial robot beforehand, such as selecting, picking up, and moving desired products. Depending on the purpose of the industrial robot, it can be fitted with a magnet, a gripper hand, or suction cups for example.
Use of our industrial robots
An ARCO industrial robot can be used in all kinds of industries. The possibilities are endless. The industrial robot can be used, for instance, to move, stack, and unstack pallets or to select and move packages with a range of different weights and dimensions. An industrial robot cannot move through the entire room but is dependent upon the pivot point of its arm. This means that the solution is easy to implement in new and existing production lines but it is positioned at one place in the line and cannot be used across the entire line.
Advantages of our industrial robots
An ARCO industrial robot offers the following advantages:
- It can be adapted to the properties of the products being handled;
- It can handle light to heavy products;
- Desired settings can be entered beforehand to enable the industrial robot to work fully automatically;
- It has a reach of 365 degrees from its pivot point;
- As operators no longer have to lift products themselves, they have more time to perform other tasks and they experience fewer ergonomic problems;
- This automated process reduces downtime to a minimum.
If you need a robot with a greater reach, have a look at our gantry robot. The gantry robot is mounted onto an overhead system, which means that it can move around the entire hall. If you want to sort as many products as possible in the shortest possible timeframe, our ARCO delta robot could be the answer for you. This robotic solution sorts products at high speed. If you are looking for a robot to support and complement the work carried out by your operators, also have a look at our cobot solutions.
Add-ons to our hardware solutions
As a system integrator, we always want to stay one step ahead of the competition. With products that not only provide better performance, but are also stable, safe and sustainable. This requires optimal maintenance of our installations, easy options for making upgrades and the flexibility to respond quickly and efficiently to changing market requirements. To achieve this, more is needed than good service. View the supplement to our hardware services below.
What our customers have to say
“We saw a lot of commitment and determination. We had to and would get the first package across the track on the day of the deadline and we did. ARCO didn’t go home until things were running smoothly. Really nice that they had the same drive as us, it was a very pleasant collaboration.”
‘’ We are very satisfied with ARCO’s automated solution and how it fits perfectly in our picking line. ARCO worked together with us on the solution from start to finish. We had a good cooperation in which customer focus was key. During implementation, the technicians worked neatly and without any inconvenience. We will certainly come back to ARCO for more solutions.’’
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘ARCO has simplified our production process. Thanks to the comprehensive package of services and the customized solutions, ARCO is the ideal supplier for us.’
‘Looking back on this project, we have to say that the cooperation with ARCO was very smooth. We joined forces and implemented the best solution for our production line. Where we previously used many manual and labour-intensive processes, we now have a fully automated system that enables us to work very efficiently.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘We greatly appreciated ARCO’s ability to respond quickly. But not only that, they demonstrated exceptional creativity when devising the solution and the various test set-ups that they developed to test the design. The close cooperation between ARCO and ourselves facilitated the successful implementation of this particular packaging line.’
‘We know ARCO as a no-nonsense company that believes in workable and affordable solutions. This is what sets ARCO apart from other companies. They also have all the necessary knowledge in-house to create a strong and efficient line. We don’t know what the future holds, but we will certainly be happy to work together again.’
‘ARCO’s weighing line has had a major impact on our production. Our new system cuts product losses by up to 6%. It was a successful project and a rewarding collaboration.’
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
