Industrial Robot Industry Analysis & Forecast to 2016-2020 with Key Company Profiles (YASKAWA, FANUC, ABB, and KUKA )
The key factors which are anticipated to drive industrial robot market include requirement in future smart manufacturing, improved robots with faster speed and improved production, reduced cost, help for ageing population and rising economic growth.
According to Laurent Porte, managing director of Metrologic Group, "Today's manufacturing world is looking for ways to inspect better and faster, driven by the ever increasing costs of defects. CMMs are simply too slow and cannot keep up with the production rates.
Encoders use different types of technologies to create a signal, including: mechanical, magnetic, resistive and optical - optical being the most common.
"We have been working with ABB products and personnel for over 19 years and value our relationship with this leader in automation technologies immensely," said Greg Whitney. "We are delighted to be recognized for our team's commitment to providing the most advanced robotic solutions using ABB product."

Manish Sablokk for IoTTech: Cutting-edge robots and other advanced smart machines are set to be added into the rapidly expanding Internet of Things, which is projected to reach 25 billion devices by 2020. Robotics has already been used in manufacturing to great effect for over a decade, performing delicate and precise tasks with a higher success rate than humans. With advancements such as 'deep learning' robots, delivery drones and ubiquitous knowledge-sharing between machines, widespread robotics adoption is becoming far more feasible. In healthcare, there are already robotic services in operation with automated pharmacy dispensing and robotic trolleys - robots that can navigate between floors and even call the lift using a Wi-Fi sensor. The hospitality sector has also been a keen adopter of robotics to deliver services and in education, robots are being deployed successfully as a tutor, tool or peer in learning activities, providing language, science and technology education.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
