Electrical and electronics, as well as automotive industries, are the main driving forces behind the growth of the logistics and warehouse robot market. PR Newswire, May 2018
ABB Robotics are one of the major drivers in this expansion and are looking for partners with new robotics related ideas and innovations to accelerate this growth.
Ever since their conception, about 50 years ago in our company in Sweden, digitally controlled electrical robots have been at the forefront of new, exciting applications. However, we are now witnessing growth at an unprecedented level.

Our robots are now making their way into new application areas and, most excitingly, into smaller businesses. We are driving this process with excitement and hope to see our satisfied user base expand beyond production and automation engineers to any professional across any segment.
The main drivers for the industrial robotics market are increasing investments for industrial automation and the growing demand from small and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs). M&M Industrial Robotics Market Report, May 2018
We would very much like to share this exciting journey with you and find the best way to channel your robotic idea or innovation to our existing and new customer base. Looking around and noticing the development in simplified use of computers, phones and tablets, we see a drastic change in interaction between user and machine.
This simplicity has come to the industrial environment, but we still see a huge potential and are excited to work together with others to bring recent technologies such as advanced user interfaces, artificial intelligence and virtual reality into our customer’s factories to make the use of robots simpler and easier.
We see our robots, which are traditionally fastened to the workshop floor, moving around and serving the factory in different areas. Our robots that were mainly used to manufacture cars and other heavy stuff are now used to help in logistics of the companies and warehouses. Robots can move along production lines or collect parts from warehouses or other mobile robots.
This is of course a very exciting era and calls for use of new technologies. Your idea or innovation could be the key to the next big step in robotics and we would be very happy to give you a hand and make it possible or make it faster.
These are examples of what is happening across the field of robotics, but not the only areas of interest. We would very much welcome any idea that will help to more toward a more optimized use of energy and material in the areas that we are active in and hope to hear from you for an initial first discussion.
If the thought of an ever more automated world making better use of resources excites you, please apply now.Apply Now
