Robot Systems Integration
Robot Systems Integration ensures that robots fit properly in the production process.
Why is this skill important?
The number of robots used in industry has increased rapidly, with an estimated 400,000 installed every year. Robot Systems Integration ensures that they fit properly in the production process.
In order to perform complex and precise tasks, robots rely on skilled human resources to install and maintain them.
Robot integrators must be able to assess the best type of robot for a particular task, which might include lifting, loading and unloading, and welding, and then deciding where to place them.
Other considerations include managing the flow of parts, developing and installing suitable programming, and the safety of the human workforce around them,
A Robot Systems Integration technician will provide technical solutions for incorporating them into production processes, from the preliminary assessment to connecting them to power and to other automated systems.
They should be aware of the latest developments in manufacturing and control systems, including the multi-articulated arm, and the evolution of regulations for robotization.
While larger businesses such as motor manufacturing were early adopters of robots, their potential for small and medium-sized business (SMEs) represents a large and growing opportunity for skilled technicians.
