Manufacturing plants are frequently long aisles of nothing but robots, no human in sight. Beyond industrial robots that repeat actions, more intelligent robots loaded with sensors, cameras, and intelligent software are able to automate process using controllers to manage action. Use of microprocessors provides a measure of intelligent control over the activity of the robot based on input from the sensors and the cameras.
A few leading vendors profiled in the report lead the market. ABB provides a comprehensive range of robots to help manufacturers improve productivity, product quality and worker safety. Regardless of application ABB has a robot to meet needs of the customer in any industry. ABB has installed 250,000 robots worldwide.

With a global install base of nearly 300,000 industrial robots, Yaskawa Motoman has over 150 robot arm models currently in production. Well defined criteria help users find a robotic arm that suits industrial applications. Required payload, reach and repeatability specifications are market aspects. Each robotic arm model is paired with a robot controller that enables workers to program and control tasks of a single robot or coordinate multiple robot arms.
Pharmaceutical companies use machine vision systems in automated production lines to inspect injection needles, which are unusable if blunt or bent. Multiple cameras photograph needles as they flow through the system on powered conveyors. Sophisticated computer software analyses the captured images to determine needle sharpness and check the contour of the tube. Industrial robots use this information to separate and discard defect needles.
Industrial robots find application in tasks such as repairing, welding, painting, grouping, allocating, product inspection and testing. Vehicle and manufacturing industries use these appliances to design auto parts, gather equipment and scrutinize manufactured parts. Industrial robots are substituted for manpower in perilous jobs, which require carrying out hazardous and unsafe tasks.
