Since the time of their invention in the late 1950s, industrial robots have slowly but surely gaining their place in the manufacturing world. As a matter of fact, they have continued to steadily gain their place since the 1980s. This growth in industrial robotic sales does not seem to be slowing down. As a matter of fact, according to one recent study, it seems to be speeding up.
“New robot technology” is something that we see on a regular basis in the industrial world these days. Companies are continually innovating, making robots faster, more accurate, and even more environmentally-friendly. As the face of the industrial robotics world changes, so does the rest of the robotics universe – putting technology that started in the manufacturing industry, into the hands of those in other industries.
