Among the many industrial robots, the handling robot is undoubtedly one of the most used robots, whether in the industrial manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, tobacco, pharmaceutical, food, chemical and other industries, or in the post office, library, port, airport. In the scenes such as parking lots, you can see the robots.
According to the definition of automated handling operations, the handling robot includes not only fixed robots such as robot arms and robots, orbiting mobile robots such as rail carriers and orbital robots, but also autonomous mobile robots such as unmanned vehicles and AGVs.
Since the first half of 2018, the global industrial robot market has reached 15.5 billion US dollars, and the Chinese market has exceeded 4 billion US dollars. Under the huge market sales, the proportion of handling robots exceeds 30%. These data show that today's handling robots are not only a new hot spot that has been sought after by the market, but also a major force in the development of the industrial robot industry.
The strong performance of handling robots is inextricably linked to its extensive market demand. As we all know, material handling is a ubiquitous daily work that exists in all walks of life, but behind seemingly inconspicuous simple work, it has long-term, basic business needs, and is often subject to personnel, cost and efficiency. Under such circumstances, the handling robot is promising.
The era of intelligent manufacturing as the technical background has arrived in advance. Under the conditions of big data under the Internet platform and artificial intelligence technology, the intelligence of robots is getting higher and higher, which not only enhances the skills of our labor force, but also opens up new ones. At work, robot engineers quickly became the hot commodity in the industry and turned into a "smart talent." In the future, cultivating multi-level and multi-type skills from R&D, production, maintenance to system integration will be the key to enhancing the core competitiveness of enterprises.
