The large work space, precision and endurance of robots offer enormous potentials to increase manufacturing efficiency. Thanks to advances in sensor and computer technology, robot programs can now be generated either fully- or partially-automatically. As a result, robots are being used to improve cost-effectiveness in industrial manufacturing, even in cases where small and average batch sizes are produced.
