Why Industrial Robotics?



Industrial robots are proven technology and their use has become mainstream in several industries, with other industries now adopting their use at a steady rate. According to the International Federation of Robotics 283,000 robots were installed in Asia in 2018. In the same year 76,000 were installed in Europe and 55,000 in America. The consensus is for continued increased adoption.

The cost of Industrial Robots has declined steadily and is projected to continue declining through to 2025. The continued improvement and cost reductions in peripheral or associated technology such as vision, artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things, augmented reality, etc. are greatly extending the capabilities and efficiencies of robotics, while also making them easier to implement.

With so many businesses, in diverse industries across the world, swiftly moving towards automation and robotics, it is practical to assess the feasibility of robotics in your environment. The primary justifications for robotics are improved safety, increased efficiency or output, reduced costs, and quality control.

Robotics are also credited with improving the type of work people perform by leaving dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks to robotics, and substituting that work with more engaging and rewarding jobs. Collaboration between humans and automated systems is increasing and workforces are embracing the sift towards technology, knowing that it provides a more sustainable future.


ABB has focused on the client experience and continuously develops tools and programs to make robotics more accessible, easier to program and integrate. RobotStudio provides offline programming on a remote PC allowing programmers to train and test routines through accurate simulation, without disturbing production.  RobotStudio can be augmented with a variety of PowerPacs that simplify the programming requirements for specific applications such as palletizing, picking, welding, and 3D printing.

ABB is a pioneer and leading global supplier of industrial robot equipment, software and complete application solutions, boasting over 400,000 robots installed in 53 countries. ABB is renowned for high product quality, first class engineering and superior technical support with a broadest service network in the industry.

ABB pioneered the world’s first electrically powered industrial robot and the world’s first industrial paint robot over 40 years ago. Today they continue to be leaders in providing robots and controllers, application equipment and software, standardized manufacturing cells and global service and support for manufacturing facilities.
