With a growing population and food demands increasing regularly, the agriculture industry knows how important it is to move quickly to ensure the supply meets the demand. The agricultural industry uses robots for a wide variety of tasks to meet these demands. Robot platforms can carry workers to pick fruit, and some automation can pick the fruit itself. There are also autonomous robots that can harvest crops in the field. They can automate crop spraying and spread fertilizer through driverless tractors. They can even sheer sheep and milk cows. However, these farming tasks are not the only way things are automated in the agricultural field. There are also industrial applications that make life easier for those involved in agriculture.
Welding and material handling require quality execution. Whether it is welding farm equipment frames, plasma cutting irrigation drains, packaging feed, or any other number of industrial agricultural tasks, robots produced by FANUC, Motoman, KUKA, and ABB provide the strength, speed and precision needed to keep up with this fast-paced industry.
