Growing usage of fiberglass in automotive plants
Aluminum is gradually losing popularity in the automotive industry due to the presence of dimpling effect on the body. Additionally, aluminum is highly susceptible to corrosion that weakens the strength of the end-product. Thus, the automotive industry is inclined more toward using fiberglass due to its high strength and low corrosion property.
“As the use of fiberglass is surging in the automotive industry, it also creates a complementary market for cutting tools. Fiberglass cutting robots are gradually proving their benefit over CNC machines in terms of productivity and cycle time in the automotive sector. According to machine specialists, robots provide fast, flexible, robust, and reliable solutions when compared with standard industrial CNC machines in the automotive manufacturing process,” says Bharath Kanniappan, a lead analyst at Technavio for robotics research.
Increasing need for higher productivity and precision in fiberglass cutting operations
With traditional machines, all the fiberglass cutting operations in the manufacturing process are carried out on each workpiece with operator intervention. This results in low productivity, low accuracy, and often requires breaks during the manufacturing process. The growing competitive pressure in manufacturing industries is leading to the implementation of fiberglass cutting robots to increase productivity and reduce cycle time. The implementation of these robots in factory floor also ensures that there are minimal errors and wastage in comparison to traditional machines. Therefore, fiberglass cutting robots are gaining popularity over traditional cutting due to their repeatability and precise cutting capabilities.
Reduced risk on workers' health
A small cutting on fiberglass releases thousands of tiny fibers into the air. When a manufacturing industry uses a traditional process for cutting fiberglass, it results in critical health problems for workers due to direct contact with these floating fibers. It further leads to breathing and skin irritation of workers. Fiberglass fibers also have an adverse effect on eyes, nose, and throat.
“Fiberglass cutting through robots help to prevent the risk of health issues by reducing direct contact with human beings during the cutting process. The workers who engage in other works in the facilities are moved behind fiberglass cutting robots to stay away from these hazardous fiber dust particles,” says Bharath.
