According to an Allied Market Research report, the global market for packaging robots is set to reach $4,649 million by 2023. Clearly, packaging is an important aspect of the manufacturing industry. Apart from protecting the product, packaging also improves the marketing of the product itself and its company.
Automated packaging installations not only provide quick ROI when deployed, but they also bring speed, accuracy and productivity to the production line. Let’s get into what packaging robots really are.
As the name suggests, packaging robots are used to palletize, carton and case products. Packaging can also include various other aspects like labelling, sealing or filling.
These robots mimic human hand movements to pack products. This allows them to pick, move, seal, label and pack. Different end of arm toolings can be added to the robot to best fit the product requirement. Articulated and delta robots are commonly used for packaging due to their degree of motion.
