Robots bring a new industrial revolution. Adoption of industrial robots in non-automotive applications is occurring in the electronics, chemicals, pharmaceutical, and food & beverages industries. Industrial robots have opened up new market opportunities. High installation costs have been largely overcome, making industries in developing markets available to vendors. The adoption of robots in underdeveloped countries occurs because of the unavailability of skilled labor.

ABB’s small IRB 120 multipurpose industrial robot weighs 25kg and can handle a payload of 3kg (4kg for vertical wrist) with a reach of 580mm. It is a cost-effective and reliable choice for generating high production outputs in return for low investment. A white finish Clean Room ISO 5 (Class 100) version, certified by IPA, is available.
Before automated cigarette manufacturing machines were introduced, all cigarettes where made by hand. People worked on a line and rolled and glued the cigarettes one at a time. This process was slow and did not produce many cigarettes in a given day. Today, there are more than sixteen thousand cigarettes made each minute on one machine. Supply and demand. These companies will keep the cigarettes on the shelves and in your fingers as long as there is a demand for them.
Most of the manufacturing conducted in the U.S. is high tech manufacturing, such as chemical, semiconductor, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, among others. To understand the nature of the manufacturing processes requires background information. That’s where a degree in engineering becomes so critical. Spending the time earning an engineering degree is worth it: many engineering jobs in this sector start around $50,000 and rise up to over $100,000.
