With all the questions in the past about the functionality of robots, along with the bad press about job loss because of new robotic systems in industry, it was a struggle for robotic manufacturers to commercialize robots to the state they are now.
However, these robots are here now, and robot manufacturers plan to keep them around for a while.
Robotics companies like FANUC, Motoman and KUKA only had to wait until customers began seeing their return on investment in the manufacturing field. It was then that other manufacturers, along with other markets, began investigating this idea of automation.
Currently, equipment from these robotic manufacturers, along with others, are being used in manufacturing, agriculture, food service, environmental research, rehabilitation, general healthcare, security and solar energy. Robot companies are also signing contracts to produce robotics for defense systems.
The bread and butter for these industrial robotics companies still stands with manufacturing though. Whether it be assembling a vehicle, welding electronics or palletizing bottled water, a robot manufacturer like FANUC, Motoman or KUKA corners the robotics market with their single and dual-armed industrial robots.
These robots improve every facet of manufacturing from accuracy to speed to safety. With their repeatability and precision, robot models from these robotic companies are increasing the quality of consumer products on a daily basis.
While there are always new opportunities for industrial robotic manufacturers to put out new products to keep pace with today’s manufacturers and consumers, the old market will be there as well. These robots can work for years and after they stop working, they can be refurbished to work like new once again.
That is where a place like RobotWorx comes into play. RobotWorx, a certified integrator of FANUC, Motoman and KUKA robotics, customizes new or refurbished industrial robotic systems for customers. Our team can find a custom system for your facility’s application that will be built to your exact specifications.
