Robotic Material Handling

Material Handling Robot

The use of workers on small parts and overhead cranes on heavy product have been conventional methods to maintaining manufacturing flow. These handling solutions are often dull, dirty, dangerous, and slow, but their overall complexity leads them to be looked at as too difficult to automate. The problem is compounded when workers create roundabout handling solutions that result in faster processing times but introduce further quality and safety issues.

VMRA uses experienced engineers and in-house EOAT designers to tailor fit each application and overcome the obstacles involved material handling. Manufacturers that partner with VMRA can transform these handling processes into modern automated operations that improve quality and increase production throughput.
