An increasingly common attribute of modern manufacturing is the full automation of manufacturing activities and material flows. Automation systems are becoming more flexible and intelligent, adapting their behavior automatically to maximize output or minimize cost per unit. Today's most advanced automation systems have additional capabilities that enabling their use in environments that have not been suitable for automation up to now and allowing the capture of entirely new sources of value in manufacturing.
The main customer for industrial robots - the automotive industry - is changing and diminishing. There is a worldwide trend towards automation in the non-automotive industry. We as suppliers of advanced robots offer increasingly tailored solutions to our customers. The metal industry, the electronics industry, the food and beverage industry, the glass industry, the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries, and the photovoltaic industries to name a few.
Industrial robots are becoming smarter and more technological. Where early robots blindly followed the same path, and later iterations used lasers or vision systems to detect the orientation of parts and materials, the latest generations of robots can integrate information from multiple sensors and adapt their movements in real time. This allows them, for example, to use force feedback to mimic the skill of a craftsman in grinding, deburring, or polishing applications. They can also make use of more powerful computer technology and big data-style analysis. For instance, they can use spectral analysis to check the quality of a weld as it is being made, dramatically reducing the amount of postmanufacture inspection required.
