Robotic Arm Works 7*24 in Manufacturing

Sunkye’s Micro D connectors meet MIL-DTL-83513 with high performance can work well in high-intensity work environment.

As early as 1962, General Motors implemented robotic arms in its assembly line for the production of cars. Decades have passed, more and more manufacturers produce their products with robotic arms, and one super factory after another was built. 

With the increase in production demand, the applications of robotic arms become more and more widely. Industrial robotic arms can work 24 hours a day and move much faster than human arms. Robotic arms usually have some form of safety package or sensors available to ensure safety.

An industrial robot arm not only increases the speed of the manufacturing process, but also the accuracy and precision. These robotic arms cut down on worker error and labor costs.

These metal marvels will continue to operate in manufacturing for years to come – arms lifting and moving progress along until the next lightning-fast innovation is introduced.

Many robots can repeat actions and motions with the accuracy of a few thousandths of an inch while being operable 24 hours a day, making them a highly desired commodity in the manufacturing field. The accuracy of a robotic arm is dependent on the electrical components of the equipment.

Sunkye uses twist pin and socket machined contacts that provide high reliability and density for the connectors. With a versatile design, these high-performance connectors are used in a variety of applications where size and weight are critical factors. Sunkye is a good choice for a robotic connectivity solution.

Sunkye’s R04A series Micro D connectors are a high-performance, cost-effective solution for industrial arm interconnectivity. These series connectors meet MIL-DTL-83513, which can work in harsh environments, and are available in 9, 15, 21, 25, 31, 37, 51, 69, and 100 positions, they are compatible with existing standard products.
