Gone are the days of deploying robots for the sole purpose of dealing with hot, heavy and hazardous applications. From beginning to end, robots are now being used to perform primary, secondary and tertiary applications in the Food and Consumer Goods segment. While this uptick in robotic automation usage for material handling is greatly due to the availability of high-quality, affordable robots that offer increased reliability, there is a paradigm shift in the way robot programming happens today that is impacting the market, creating a packaging programming revolution.
