Industrial robots are used to fabricate metal parts using precise and repeatable movements. They are especially helpful in difficult-to-reach places or when precise measurements are required. They can also be used to produce complex shapes and patterns.
Industrial robots are often used in metal fabrication processes, as they have the ability to move quickly and accurately. However, this speed and accuracy can also lead to injuries if not used correctly.Here are three common industrial robot injury types:
1. Slippage – When a robot moves across the surface it is working on, it can become stuck or slip. This can result in injuries if the robot moves unexpectedly or falls on someone or if parts fall off of the machine.
2. Jams – When a robot is trying to move something and it gets caught between two obstacles, it can get jammed. This can cause the robot to stop moving, which could lead to an injury. Also, if the object is too heavy for the robot to move, it could potentially cause an injury.
3. Falls – Industrial robots are incredibly tall, and sometimes people or objects get in their way while they’re working. If someone falls into a robot while it’s working, they could potentially get injured.
If you have been injured by a robot for metal forming, you should contact an attorney. These machines can be extremely dangerous and if you are unfortunate enough to be in a collision, an attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.
