Benchtop Robots
Benchtop robots have been a useful asset and have aided the assembly process since the early 1990s. These small footprint robots can perform many tasks without compromising precision and flexibility, while able to provide the advantage of an advanced automated process to even the smallest assemblers and manufacturers who did not have the financial ability to invest in automated equipment - until now.

XYZ robots are simple to set up, easy to program, will cut down on a learning curve and have self-diagnostic features to assess errors in programming. Specific manufacturers around the world produce compact but cost saving robots and even fewer manufacturers and specialist dispensing companies have the experience to place them in such a way that even smaller businesses will maximise profits from the investment.

Among the advantages of these robots;
- Functionality is restricted only by the user's imagination.
- They are built on a robust platform and can be configured to suit numerous end-user applications without investing in additional equipment.
- Robots offer many cost benefits to manufacturers.
- Small footprint translates to huge savings on the factory floor space.
- Manual applications can be performed with much greater precision and repeatability.
- Maintenance on these machines is negligible and their throughput is much higher as compared to manual hand application, thus providing major time savings.

Large industrial dispensing robots and special built systems might not be the answer, owing to higher initial costs and a much longer payback period. However, the payback found on smaller dispensing machines can sometimes be as little as six months, especially in economies that have high labour costs.
