Robots are made up of easily available materials. Steel, cast iron and aluminum are commonly used for making the arms and bases of robots. In mobile robots, rubber tires are fixed for smooth and quiet operation. Robots may be electronically operated and also laser or radio controlled. The exposed parts of the robot are enveloped with flexible neoprene sheaths and bellows.
You can install robots with all the instructions and then watch it perform them, with optimal efficiency to boot. This equipment is fully armed to take on non-subjective tasks. How, you ask? Well, first of all, they are non-intrusive. If all you need is something that does not in your way and never gets too personal, then this just the thing you need. Other than that it is designed with components to help you work it has.
Robots are also more reliable and secure than humans. They do exactly what they are instructed to do and nothing more. A central control person can manage up to 30 Robots, each performing the work of between 2 to 4 staff. This significantly reduces management costs and improves capacity planning accuracy.
In most countries, especially in the developing nations, there are some hidden costs that a foreign investor comes to find about once he has already established his company. For instance, in Asia and Africa it is commonplace for investors to bribe, give kickbacks or even pay protection fee to facilitate services and shield their investments. This normally pushes operating costs up thus making offshore manufacturing unviable.
