The Industrial Control market is expected to grow from $120.0 billion in 2010 to $185.0 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 7.58% from 2011 to 2016. The key companies with respect to factory automation include Siemens (Germany), ABB (Switzerland), Emerson Process Management (U.S.), Rockwell Automation (U.S.), Schneider Electric (France), Honeywell (U.S.), Omron (Japan), Yokogawa (Japan), and others.

Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate due to increase in production activities in APAC, cheap labor, huge population base, and lucrative government policies. China is the growth engine for automation in Asia in spite of lower levels of plant automation. India too is gaining factory automation market shares worldwide.

The various subsets of automation include robotics, control systems, IT systems, and manufacturing execution systems (MES), all chiefly responsible for reducing human interaction in the process, thus, lowering labor and production costs, and increasing throughput or production output. The other common industry terms for the capabilities, components, and aspects of automation include human machine interface (allowing for system operator and human supervision), distributed control systems (DSC), SCADA, conveyor belts, conveyance systems, and programmable logic controllers (PLC). Robotics, particularly robotic arms, are common features in factory automation due to their precision, reduction in human labor costs, advantages in handling, and reduction of human risks and exposure to production hazards.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
