One of the most varied applications for robots and we are finding new customers with new applications in new industries every day. Our customers use robots for assembling various products, from mobile phones to wooden pallets to gas meters.

Obviously accuracy is key in many assembly applications and most robots are accurate to 0.1mm which is as good if not better than a human. Dexterity is also important, here clever gripper design is important.

Good examples of where robots can offer a great advantages are those where the tool is heavy, noisy or dangerous. Nail guns, rivet guns, large drills or grinders can all be over 20kg, be unwieldy and dangerous, yet a 120kg payload robot will handle them with ease.

This is a video of an assembly application where a robot is making wooden pallets using a nail gun.
