Automating automotive processes with robots

Get in touch

From welding and assembly to material handling, virtually each stage of car manufacturing stands to gain from automation. The technology typically involves incorporating robots into key areas, aiming to boost efficiency in three key ways: saving time, increasing production capacity, and protecting workers from hazardous tasks and repetitive strain.

Both car part producers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) leverage robotics and vision systems for various tasks, including welding and clipping, assembly, inspecting, and testing. The beauty of automation lies in its adaptability and constant evolution, presenting exciting opportunities to further optimise car manufacturing processes in the future.

RNA Automation specialises in a diverse range of automation technologies tailored for automotive applications to help increase efficiency in these companies.
