Robots have many advantages, and production units which do not obtain their services will be left behind and will not be able to compete in quality, production, and cost.
Robots have been developed by extended modern research, and are being used in numerous industries for achieving advantages which would not be possible with the human beings. Some of the advantages for using robots are mentioned below:
Operatin In Unsafe Surroundings
There are numerous industries where the surroundings are unsafe for the employment of human labor due to the existence of hazardous environments. Robots can be used effectively in such environments where handling of radioactive materials is involved, such as hospitals or nuclear establishments, where direct exposure to human beings can be dangerous for their health.
Improvement In Quality
Robots perform operations with superior exactitude, ensure uniformity of production due to which rejections are minimized, and reduce losses. Measurements and movements of tools being utilized are more accurate. Thus, the quality of the product manufactured is improved manifold compared to the performance by human beings.
Increase In Production
Robots have the ability to work continuously without pause, unlike human labor for which breaks and vacation are essential. Thus, production is increased by the utilization of robots in industrial applications, and consequently profits of the production unit are increased.
Execute Boring And Repetitive Work
In many production establishments work required to be executed is awfully boring, being cyclic and repetitive, due to which it is difficult for the operators to remain fully dedicated to their tasks and generate interest in their work. When tasks are monotonous, workers tend to be careless, thereby increasing the probability of accidents and malfunctions of machines. Utilization of robots has eliminated problems associated with boredom in production.
Duty During Adverse Hours
Most of the production units are required to function twenty-four hours, during day or night, on holidays, without any break so as to ensure increased production which is commensurate with the capacity of the machinery. Thus, human laborers who do not feel very comfortable working such odd hours can be employed accordingly. However, robots can be beneficially utilized whenever necessary.
Safety And Health Of Workers
Since robots are capable of working in hazardous environments, more dangerous operations are being handled by robots. Thus the safety and health of workers is ensured, thereby reducing expenditures on health and medicines. Robots are now engaged in hoisting and moving heavy objects, and perform other unsafe tasks.
