Manufacturers new to automation may be hesitant to jump into using a work cell. Here’s why work cells are the best option for manufacturers of any size.

Automation can be intimidating. However, with a custom work cell from iGAM, it’s easy to improve production capacity and throughput without the headache of picking equipment individually.

Custom work cells for optimized production capabilities

What is a robotic work cell?

As defined on our glossary, a robotic work cell is a complete system composed of one or more robots and controllers. Brand name robots such as KUKA, FANUC, and ABB robots are typically used because of their reliable and well-established machinery.

Depending on the work cell’s applications, other equipment such as PLCs, HMIs, and more may be added to complete the cell.

Work cells can be easily integrated into your manufacturing line. Since they are a turnkey automation solution, they provide everything you need to perform a job, such as material handling, welding, and more.

Why should you customize a work cell?

Customizing a work cell versus buying a standard pre-made work cell offers your facility the exact machining your production line needs.

Your product and production process are unique. With a custom work cell, you can ensure that your standards of quality are being met.

Our sister company, NRTC Automation, explains the simplified process of designing your own work cell:

  • Step 1: Determine what job the work cell will be doing.
  • Step 2: Develop an outline of the tasks being performed.
  • Step 3: Choose robots with the right applications to do the job.
  • Step 4: Select a positioner to move the product down the line.
  • Step 5: Create a layout to efficiently (and safely) complete the task.

Once you determine your automation needs, iGAM and NRTC Automation work together to build, engineer, and install a work cell in your facility.

Benefits of using work cells

Work cells will transform your capacity for production.

The top benefits of adding a work cell include:

  • Minimizing downtime caused by delays and bottlenecks on the production line
  • Reducing human error
  • Improving product quality and uniformity
  • Reducing lead time for more satisfied customers
  • Increasing scalability for demand

A work cell will make you a more dependable and productive manufacturer that customers can rely on when they need your product. That means a more loyal customer base and a greater bottom line for your company.
