Integrated Robotics Improve Design Cycles, Demand Response and Competitiveness

Forecasts indicate that the influx of robotic installations across various industries, including transportation and electrical equipment, will spur significant growth in industrial robotics over the next decade. By 2030, robots should be able to handle 30 to 40% of automatable tasks in these industries.
In the material handling industry specifically, e-commerce demands in consumer packaged goods industries are driving increasing complexity in packaging and logistics, both in design and in production. Manufacturers struggle to accommodate multiple sizes of packages, reduce labor costs, and run efficiently for shorter production runs.
The shifting demands of consumers for immediate delivery, the need for retailers to optimize shelf space and shipping options have created a need for higher responsiveness in all aspects of material handling machinery. To meet these demands, robot suppliers have incorporated easier programming and teaching tools, predictive maintenance diagnostics and alarms – presented in real time to operators – and lowered costs.
