IBT is a proud integrator of robotic systems and is a significant supplier of systems.
The robotics business has been growing steadily -- and it's no surprise. Robot cost factors have been dropping and human labor costs have been on the upswing. As robotic technology becomes better and better, the economics and the capabilities of the machines themselves have been powering a strong expansion of their place in modern industry.
One particular area that has been strong for robotics is food. Today's food buyer, in the US especially, is pressed for time and needs convenience. As a result, food is being supplied through the super market in a more highly processed form.
Food, consequently, is an area that strongly needs and benefits from robotics, especially in packing. As food processing technologies are improving the standard of prepared food; the challenges of productivity for the manufacturer grow greater and greater. The robot's inherent advantages include its ability to save time -- and, therefore money.
