Robots take on new roles
This “lights out” production concept—where manufacturing activities and material flows are handled entirely automatically—is becoming an increasingly common attribute of modern manufacturing.
In part, the new wave of automation will be driven by the same things that first brought robotics and automation into the workplace: to free human workers from dirty, dull, or dangerous jobs; to improve quality by eliminating errors and reducing variability; and to cut manufacturing costs by replacing increasingly expensive people with ever-cheaper machines.
Today’s most advanced automation systems have additional capabilities, however, enabling their use in environments that have not been suitable for automation up to now and allowing the capture of entirely new sources of value in manufacturing.
Robots are getting smarter, too. Where early robots blindly followed the same path, and later iterations used lasers or vision systems to detect the orientation of parts and materials, the latest generations of robots can integrate information from multiple sensors and adapt their movements in real time.
We in RESIM give companies far more freedom to decide which tasks to automate with robots and which to conduct manually. Our advanced safety systems mean robots can take up new positions next to their human colleagues.
Robot prices / Labor costs
As robot production has increased, costs have gone down. Over the past 20 years, the average robot price has fallen by half in real terms, and even further relative to labor costs.
Handling and processing stations
RESIM is pleased to bring you material handling solutions which now features technology that matches the sophistication of the machines that prepare the pieces. Do you need to process the products during handling? No problem.

Robotic clipping stations
For this particular project, the system was required to fit clips alongside luxury car sunroof frame. We highly improved speed and process quality while reducing the risk of injury for employees.
The speed, cleanliness, and strength of joints of ultrasonic welding make it an attractive process during automated production. We like to build this stations in our innovative and reliable way.

Programmable Logic Controlling
The PLC is the brain of our systems. It receives information from connected sensors or input devices, processes the data, and triggers outputs based on pre-programmed parameters. We only use the best.
