The few among the wide range of Kuka Robotics are welding robots, SCARA robots, clean room robots, heat -resistant robots, gantry robots, palletizers and six-axis robots of all sizes. For the heavy-duty models and shelf-mounted versions, the robots are made with the features for mounting on ceiling or floor which makes them flexible to any tasks and multifunctional. These robots are structured so that they can very easily reconfigured to other tasks.
Growth prospects for the industrial robotics industry depend on market opportunity metrics relative to the different industries. Automotive investment levels globally have remained at historical highs. Increasing usage of robotic automation by non-automotive companies is driving the usage of industrial robot automation to a new level. Increased adoption of industrial robots coupled with a huge push from the industry for collaborative robots, opens opportunities for robotic solutions. In the immediate future industrial robots strengthen the position of every industry, promising more manufacturing efficiency at every level.
Invention of Robots has brought about revolutionary changes in the field of industrial manufacturing. In the earlier part of the century humans were engaged in jobs, which were very dangerous and involved serious health hazards, but in 1956, Unimation a company founded by George Devol and Joseph F. Engelberger invented the first robot. These were initially used in industries where it was required that dangers involved in working should be reduced like in spot welding, die casting and forging and then gradually they were employed in areas requiring greater strength and accuracy than human beings.
Companies are increasingly deploying industrial logistics robots to enhance their automated processes and achieve a competitive edge. Furthermore, these robots facilitate flexible systems and end-to-end process improvement, which has added to the demand from the global industrial logistics robots market. However, the fact that every logistics robotic system needs customization prior to deployment will restrain the global industrial logistics robots market.
The most commonly used robot designs for industrial use are the articulated, SCARA and gantry types. Predominant type of industrial robots in use is a robot arm, which are very independent. Unimation were pioneers in producing industrial robots. These appliances are designed by connecting communication cables to the Ethernet, FireWire, or serial ports of a computer.
Industrial logistics robots are expected to help bring about consistent delivery of quality materials and efficiency to manage food production. Industrial logistics robots are expected by industry experts to bring about a new industrial revolution like never seen before.
