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.
Industrial robotics – its components and functions. It has been said a while back that industrial robotics improve competence and production for manufacturers. Aside from this however, there are other features and abilities that one would look forward to in the system. Its principal features include environmental interfaces and sensors. The list is also completed by safety features, data management and storage systems. All these major features are connected with the areas within the enterprise.
Automation improves the level of production and competence of certain industries. It is in this regard that industrial robotic systems have been conceptualized. It is true that this system renders much help to operators. The predicament however lies upon the price that goes with it. In industries where modernization has not yet been introduced, learning how to operate the system adds to the burden.
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.
Manufacturing industries have been making use of robots and automation on a very large scale. Robots have been successful in meeting the requirements of precision, endurance, speed, and reliability. Robots perform all kinds of dangerous and dirty jobs. Robots also handle the manufacturing work which includes material handling (pick and place), welding, packaging, assembling, painting, palletizing, product testing and inspection.
