Assembly Automation Services

At Reko Automation, we are systems integrators that specialize in industrial automation. We provide unique automation systems that handle everything from welding and dispensing to assembly processes. Our turnkey design, construction, and installation services can boost your factory’s production sequences for more efficient and profitable work. When you choose Reko Automation, we’ll create a digital simulation to test the design; integrate assembly functions such as fastening, glue bonding, and welding; and install the tested system in your facility.

We’re an Autoguide mobile robot integrator, as well as an authorized integrator for Fanuc and ABB Robotics. We have experience with Kuka, Motoman, UR, and other robotic systems to build the best system to fit your facility’s needs.

What Is Assembly Automation?

Artificial intelligence and process automation are increasingly vital tools throughout the manufacturing industry. Instead of relying on manual assembly processes, companies use a combination of software, data, and robotics hardware to automate each of their assembly tasks.

Automating these processes reduces time, errors, and manual labor costs, while increasing safety and production efficiency. As AI and robotics grow more advanced, they are able to handle tasks with increased complexity without the need for human intervention.

Hard, Programmable, and Soft Automation

There are multiple types of automation that factories can use to streamline their production processes. Three of the most common automation categories are hard, programmable, and soft automation, each of which offer a different level of control and flexibility.

Hard Automation

Hard automation processes perform a series of fixed tasks or processes in a sequence, which doesn’t change or respond to environmental shifts. These systems handle simple, routine tasks, generally for high volume processes or universal processes that don’t change from product to product. Hard automation robotics systems manage linear or rotational motion-based tasks and offer simplicity, quick high volume productions, and part production at a low per-unit cost. However, they are not suitable for frequently modified production.

Programmable Automation

These systems are managed by a program that follows a limited number of different sequences. Programmers can add new sets of instructions to the program and modify assembly steps for different production runs. This grants programmable automation systems some degree of flexibility, which is excellent for batch productions. However, they are slower than hard automation systems and more expensive.

Soft Automation

Even more flexible than programmable automation, soft automation follows a wide variety of instructions without downtime or costly changes to the program. They adapt continuously, even while producing different goods, which is ideal for personalized products or assortments; however, these products are produced at a much higher per-unit cost when compared to hard automation.

Benefits of Assembly Automation

Whether your setup utilizes hard automation, programmable automation, or soft automation, automation itself offers large advantages that enable your facility to produce more goods at faster rates. Some of the key benefits of assembly automation include:

  • Efficiency. Automated systems finish goods at a faster rate than human operated assembly processes. They also operate for longer, such as in lights-out manufacturing setups. Assembly automation allows for production, electricity, and energy efficiency.
  • Safety. By letting robots handle potentially toxic, heavy, or sharp materials during assembly, factories keep their human workers safe. This reduces liability, the risk of injury, and costs associated with site safety and workers’ compensation claims.
  • Standardization. Robotics systems assemble goods without the risk of human error. The steps are performed at a consistent quality level, reducing product waste and delays.
