Guide to Implementing Industrial Robots published.

Guide to Implementing Industrial Robots has been created as part of a HVM catapult project, with MTC engineers Jeremy Hadall and Lucy Falkner acknowledged as contributing to its creation.

This Guide raises awareness on the best practice associated with the setting up of an automated process, with specific focus on industrial robotics for use in manufacturing and associated industries.

The Guide sheds light on some of the key issues to consider when evaluating whether or not a business should automate and the processes involved when the decision to automate has been taken. These issues include:

a) the range of benefits associated with having an automated manufacturing system;
b) the challenges that an automated system presents in terms of its setting up and running; and
c) the process involved in evaluating a business’ need for automation, the cost associated with the automation process, the potential risks and opportunities of implementing an automation system and how to effectively manage an automated system.
