Global Cartesian Robots Market 2015-2019

Global Cartesian Robots Market 2015-2019

About Cartesian robots

Cartesian robots contains three prismatic joints whose axes are coextensive with a Cartesian coordinate system. Its working is based on an overhead grid that makes it free up floor space, and is primarily used to provide quick and accurate solutions related to material handling applications. It consists of a work envelope that is rectangular in shape. The work envelope depends on the grid and can be quite large. One of the prime advantages of these robots is their complete linear movement, which facilitates simpler controls and provides a high degree of repeatability, accuracy, and mechanical rigidity.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global Cartesian robots market to grow at a CAGR of 4.84% over the period 2014-2019.

    Press Release

    Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cartesian Robots Market 2015-2019

    Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cartesian robots market: ABB, Denso Wave, KUKA, Seiko Epson and Toshiba Machine

    Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adept Technology, Fanuc, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Omron, Staubli International, Yamaha Robotics and Yaskawa Electric

    Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Companies across the heavy machinery industry are increasingly adopting cartesian robots to automate their manufacturing and assembly processes. These companies prefer end-to-end solutions over standalone ones as the former are expected to have a greater impact on overall productivity and operational efficiency. These solutions also help minimize production errors, enabling end-users to focus on their core business processes. Vendors are, therefore, providing end-to-end robotic solutions, resulting in high competition in the market.”

    According to the report, the market is witnessing the increasing usage of cartesian robots for cleaning and assembly applications across industries, thereby reducing human effort. Cartesian robots used for cleaning and assembly applications account for a 60-75% share across industries. The adoption of cartesian robots in cleaning and assembly application leads to a faster, error-free process, and hence increases the quality of the product.

    Further, the report states that there are issues concerning the rising demand for articulated robots hindering this market.
