Ever more robots at food and packaging machines until 2014
The new Quest study states that with 53% more than each second of these manufacturers are already using robots at the machines. This portion will remain constant until 2014. It signals that the possibilities and chances of robots are already fully identified by the manufacturers in these two sectors.
This is also confirmed by the fact that these machine-builders plan to equip by 51% more food and packaging machines with robots until 2014 - a very dynamic increase. This growth will extend the portion of the food and packaging machines with robots of all these machines from today 4% to 6% to 2014.
Thereby three applications of robots at the machines show an above average growth: pick & place will double to 2014 (+95%), palletizing will increase by 35% and material handling by 18% to 2014.
These technological planning of the machine-builders and their effects in the next years may be of special interest for the decision-makers in the food industry as far as new machines and plants or their modernization are concerned.
