The advantages and disadvantages of robots in the factories
The robots can perform the tasks which the humans find them dangerous, boring or difficult, they can do the work with constant speed & precision, They continue & finish the work without feeling sick, The robots can be programmed to perform a simple task, They repeat that task more times, the robots work in the factory with high degree of accuracy and they work with constant velocity.
Advantages of robots
The robots help increase the number of manufactured products and decrease the production of defective goods, they can produce the same quality products during the production process, they do not get exhausted and they work for a long period of time.
The robots can be used in the computer industry, they are used in all kinds of electronics from the radios to the microwaves, they are used in packaging, they are used in producing the food, textiles and the drugs.
The robots help in doing dangerous jobs, they can work at a constant speed without sleep, breaks, vacations, salaries and they can produce more than human workers.
The robots can perform dangerous applications in hazardous settings, They minimize the material waste, they can save time & effort and their movements are always exact.
The intelligent robots help increase productivity in the factories, they made the businesses achieve more benefits, they can reduce the companies’ loss, they are used in dangerously polluted environments such as the chemical spills and radioactive in the nuclear power plants and they are used in the radioactive waste clean-up.
The robots have more precise guidance in doing the tasks, they are linked to the powerful computers or controllers, they contain machine vision sub-systems acting as their visual sensors, so, they are more flexible to the orientation of objects that they can perform the tasks on them.
We will see in the future the machines which work alongside humans and they will learn from them to perform an increasing number of manufacturing tasks.
Disadvantages of robots
The industries prefer utilizing the robots than the human workers, So, the unemployment rate will increase, and many people who can not get work will become poorer while the company owners will get richer.
The companies should calculate the cost of the robotic automation in light business, It sometimes costs a lot of money greater than the financial budget and they need regular maintenance which costs a lot of money.
The robots can work in the factory with limitations, The human does the tasks that require creativity, decision-making, adaptation and job learning.
If the employees have no experience to deal with the robots, they will need a training program to interact with the new robotic equipment, it will take time and cost a lot of money in the financial output.
The companies must plan before using industrial robots as using the robots without planning in the factories does not guarantee the results, so the companies will have the difficulty to achieve their goals.
The robots can produce lots of electronic wastes, They can not do something which they do not design to do and they make the people lazy.
