Another feature of KUKA product is that any task related additional applications can be incorporated by configuring the networking of PC controllers. All the products are characterized with high reliability and safety and also feature user friendly control devices, uniformity in the models and consistency in the maintenance. There is a network of well trained system partners worldwide which offers a guaranteed robotic solution to any particular needs or a well tailored complete solution to any of the industrial needs.
The industrial robots can be programmed for performing a single function at a time and can only perform that particular function till they are reprogrammed. The cost of a robot is not very huge, but generally the cost of programming the robot is so high that instead of reprogramming it the manufacturers find it more economical to buy a new one for a different task. In simpler terms we can say that usually the cost of the robot is just a fraction of the cost of programming it.

You see, there was an interesting article in Business Insider Tech News titled ”Foreign robotics companies find success in China,” written by Jonathan Camhi published on September 22, 2015 which stated:
”Re-inventing manufacturing” almost sounds like the mission statement of a Technocrat or Futurist looking to capture the utopian dream. Indeed, but why can’t we? After all, Henry Ford’s assembly line is a pretty old concept. Yes, certainly we have made incremental advances and yet, what about the proverbial ”OMG” revolutionary innovations, and ”leap-frogging” type paradigms shifts in the manufacturing sector? I guess we are still waiting for those aren’t we? We don’t have Star Trek assimilation machines yet, I suppose someday we will, and I hope the US is the nation to bring such dreams to fruition.
Segmentation comprises demand for individual robot and end-users in all the regions and important countries in the region. Application segment includes current and estimated demand of industrial robots for applications such as picking, packing and palletizing. While gripper segment includes present and forecast demand for packaging robot with grippers such as claw, clamp, vacuum and others (Pneumatic and Hydraulic). End-use industry segment includes demand for packaging robots in industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, tracking and logistics and industrial packaging.
