Robots Getting Better Jobs

Improved technological capabilities will let robots move up the production line.

Improved technological capabilities will let robots move up the production line.  

Advances in both hardware and software are  allowing robots to move up the productino line from palletizing to processing and depalletizing.

According to a new report from The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the following developments will redefine the role robotics play in manufacturing operations:

  • Sanitation improvements will allow for direct contact with food;
  • Spatial awareness that keeps workers adjacent to the robot safe
  • Lower costs that will make robotics more pervasive
  • Vision sensors that allow even greater precision and handling even giving robots the ability to sort by color
  • Faster speeds and heavier lifting capabilities
