In the construction industry engineering is a highly critical component of projects. The vows true for the construction enclosure industry. Robots have become a fairly common sight in factories across the U.S. and Canada. According to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), there are some 225,000 robots at work in U.S. factories today, putting the nation second only to Japan in terms of robot usage. However, this number represents only a fraction of the total possible market. The Fence People Limited have implemented the use of robotics since 2010. Improving the efficiency and precision of the manufacturing of crucial structural components.
Benefits of Robotics:
- Accuracy | Robotic welding is more accurate and precise than manual welding. Using robots improves weld repeatability. Programming determines the length and depth of each seam.
- Increase Output | Welding robots are extremely reliable and efficient. They have the ability to work 24/7 year-round, increase production, and speed up the entire process.
- Improve Safety | Using robots for welding eliminates many hazards for the worker. Human welders/operators no longer have to come near hazardous fumes and molten metal. Robots prevent costly accidents.
- Eliminate Waste | Automated welding reduces errors. Parts no longer have to be welding more than once and less material is wasted. All of this increases productivity.
Highly engineered enclosures are critical to urban construction hoarding. Responsible for pedestrian safety The Fence People Limited have developed engineered hoarding which can withstand significant construction debris, as well as environmental impact. These covered walkways have been engineered to such a degree that construction site offices can be mounted on top; freeing up significant space within the construction site. The components which hold these site offices are have been manufactured by robotics which provides only the best welds and reliability. Demand never being an issue as these robots can quickly manufacture whatever component is necessary.
Changing the face of manufacturing robotics is no longer looked upon as the “replacement” of skilled labour, but a manufacturing improvement from safety to dependability.
