The global robotic market consists of a wide range of technologies that are advancing at light speed paces and expecting huge growths. This is especially seen within the collaborative branch.  The collaborative robot market is expecting an incredibly high growth rate over the next few years. It is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 60.04% between 2016 and 2022, from 110 million USD in 2015 to 3.3 billion USD in 2022 (1).

FANUC’s collaborative robot series includes the heavy-duty CR-35iA and has recently introduced human arm sized mini-collaborative robots: the CR-4iA, the CR-7iA, and the extended reach, the CR-7iA/L.  They are small and flexible robots that are able to help conserve floor space with flexible mounting options such as up-side down, on a wall, or even on a hand cart that can easily be relocated.

TIP-TIG welding is a new advanced innovation of the common TIG welding.  This process uses new, patent-pending technology, that delivers the highest possible weld energy with the lowest possible weld heat, all while still being user-friendly.  While TIG welding is one of the most accurate robotic welding processes on the market today, there is always room for innovation.

When looking for that perfect finish, one must pay close attention to how the preparatory work is completed. This is an instrumental stage, key for providing optimum product results. Enter innovative robotic sanding solutions. Robotic sanding produces a product that is far superior to manual processing, in all respects.  It smooths down surfaces using a custom end of arm tooling in order to produce a clean, even, silky, and finished product.

If you are looking to improve your sanding, polishing, or finishing of wooden parts, look no further than ABB’s integrated Force Control software.  ABB always keeps the customer in mind; this is reflective in the quality in their robots and the company's incredible customer service.

Industrial robots are continually receiving upgrades and enhancements as technology is exponentially improving.  This is evident when taking a dive deep into FANUC’s sanding robots. These robots now combine force sensing and robotic vision to create tactile intelligence.   These two techniques have been introduced into the industry to increase the proven effectiveness of robots in manufacturing.  And that they have.

Automated spindling can produce a more consistent, precise, and overall high quality product (than manual work) for a variety of applications.  Spindling robots are excellent choices for applications such as material removal, deburring, milling, or precise routing.  They help to make work pieces clean and uniform for manufacturing processes.

Masters at material handling, the Motoman GP series is ready to conquer your application and increase your total productivity. The robots in this series (GP 7, GP 8, and GP 12) offer high speeds and amazing efficiency.  Additionally, all of the robots have a compact, slim design, a small footprint.These robots were designed with the customer in mind; they honor your time and also provide you with easy set-up, operation, and maintenance.

MotoLogix is a new, revolutionary software and hardware interface that can control DX200 Motoman robots via a Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC.  The integration of MotoLogix into the PLC offers the full advantages of the robot controller, but provides a more simplified process.  No longer will programming, operation, and maintenance of robots and machine control be carried out separately.

The ABB IRB 7600 is a work horse and ready to take on any heavy duty job between 150 - 500 kg (up to 630 kg with “wrist down”), depending on the model.  It excels at handling tough tasks as it has high available torque and inertia capability, a robust and rigid design, and powerful acceleration. This powerful acceleration results in shorter cycle times due to its motion control, unique to ABB.
