Global Fiberglass Cutting Robots Market 2017-2021

About Fiberglass Cutting Robots

Fiberglass is a fiber-reinforced plastic where the reinforcement fiber is comprised of fibrous silicate glass material with varying amount of oxides such as calcium, magnesium, and boron. Fiberglass is getting popular over aluminum and other metals due to its lightweight property and greater ability to resist heat and hazardous chemical materials. Common applications of fiberglass include electrical insulation, thermal insulation, and mechanical reinforcement. Fiberglass requires a high precision cutting operation to make it useful for industrial applications. However, the cutting operation of fiberglass creates critical health issues for workers due to the release of injurious fiber dust in the air during the cutting process. Thus, incorporation of robots in fiberglass cutting process reduces the health risk for workers. Similarly, fiberglass cutting robots are replacing CNC machines at a faster pace due to high precision cutting technology. Dedicated fiberglass cutting robots are implemented in the industrial sector to perform the cutting task under hazardous environments. Multiple spindles are incorporated in fiberglass cutting robots to change the media or tools so that the robot can be used for multiple applications within a single work environment.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global fiberglass cutting robots market to grow at a CAGR of 10.56% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fiberglass Cutting Robots Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global fiberglass cutting robots market: ABB, FANUC, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, KUKA, and Yaskawa Motoman.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ARCOS, ATI Industrial Automation, Dynamic Robotic Solutions (DRS), Genesis Systems, RobotWorx, and Romheld Automation.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing demand for smart factory. With the need to have a streamlined operation in an industrial environment, organizations are continuously revamping the overall process to attain an optimized and closed infrastructure. This need for a closed infrastructure paved the implementation of connected machines and devices in the industrial set-up. Organizations are trying to integrate factory floor inputs and business-level strategies to have a streamlined infrastructure. With the increasing demand for integration, the need for Industrial Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, and cloud computing will have a focused solution for end-user industries. As with the concept of Industry 4.0, many manufacturers are still in the process of understanding the solution leading to a better awareness toward smart factories.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing usage of fiberglass in automotive plants. Aluminum is gradually losing the popularity in the automotive industry due to the presence of dimpling effect on the body. Additionally, aluminum is highly susceptible to corrosion that weakens the strength of the end-product over the time period. Thus, the automotive industry is inclined more toward using fiberglass due to its high strength and low corrosion property. Similarly, fiberglass does not provide any simple effect on an automobile body. As the use of fiberglass is surging in the automotive industry, it also creates a complementary market for cutting tools. Fiberglass cutting robots are gradually proving their benefit over CNC machines in terms of productivity and cycle time in the automotive sector.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Growing operational difficulties due to complex technology. The selection of an accurate coordinate frame is highly desired to get satisfactory outcomes in fiberglass cutting process. It is highly required to verify the frame, direction, and speed of the robot movement as per specification so that the collision of tools can be avoided.
