Industrial logistics robots are used across various sectors to perform activities such as palletizing and depalletizing boxes and bottles of different
shapes, material handling, and packaging.
Industrial Logistics Robots across Various Industries
Following are some of the key industries utilizing the efficiency of logistics robots:
In semiconductor and electronics industry, precision and accuracy are the most important aspects. Also, speed in manufacturing process might lead to the
damage of the thin electronic wafers by direct human labor. Kawasaki, one of the leading players in global industrial logistics robot market has introduced
robots such as grippers and aligner, to handle the delicate semiconductor wafers, solar panels, and LCD panels used in the semiconductor industry. Other
players are also developing various logistics robot due to the increasing demand from the semiconductors and electronics industry.
In electrical and electronics sector logistics robots such as Cartesian robots, cylindrical robots, and articulated robots are widely used. Some of the
industry players such as Yamaha, Mitsubishi, and ABB have introduced robots to attend to the requirements of the electrical industry to manufacture high
Robotic automation offers a number of advantages to the food and beverage sector. Hygiene is a crucial aspect for manufacturing in food industry. Logistics
robots such as a robotic cutter perform cutting operations on different meat products, thereby providing enhanced productivity while decreasing food
contamination. Latest advancements in the field such as spectral imaging and robotic fore-sensing will allow robots to “see and feel”, which will be
helpful in various logistics operations in the food and beverage sector.

Industry players are focusing on decreasing the size of robotic equipments for their use in laboratories in pharmaceutical industry as well as in
performing the minimally invasive operations. In clinical laboratories robots are used for drug discovery and research. With increased demand for logistics
robots in assembly and packaging of medical devices, robots have a huge opportunity in life science and pharmaceutical applications.
Automotive industry has been using industrial robots in a number of operations such as painting car bodies, and assembling and installing automotive parts.
In the production of Ford Escape in 2013, the company used a robotic arm fitted with laser and camera to install the parts in the car body accurately. BMW
has introduced collaborative robots to its assembly line. Automotive industry is expected to boost the growth of the industrial logistics robot market in
the near future.
