Global Handling, Degating, and Deflashing Robots Market 2017-2021
About Handling, Degating, and Deflashing Robots
Handling, degating, and deflashing are the major applications carried out post foundry processes in industries. Dedicated robots are employed to perform these tasks under hazardous conditions. These robots provide adequate surface pressure on the workpiece and optimize the handling, degating, and deflashing operations in a safe manner. Degating is the removal of runners, risers, and gates from the casting. These are external components that are attached to the casting during the molding process. They are removed with the help of the robotic End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) that consists of a knife or sharp degators, which can remove tough plastic and sculpt accurate and precise design. The collected metal or plastic gate pieces are reused in molding. Degating robots are generally used in plastic molding in various end-user industries. These robots enhance the workflow. Deflashing is the removal of flashes from newly molded parts. Flashes are excessive parts that stick out of the metal or plastic mold outside the package.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global handling, degating, and deflashing robots market to grow at a CAGR of 10.50% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Handling, Degating, and Deflashing Robots Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global handling, degating, and deflashing robots market: BB, FANUC, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Midea, and Yaskawa
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Apex Automation and Robotics, Omron Adept Technologies, Staubli, and Universal Robots.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increase in technological innovations to ease integration of robots. Technological innovations have always been important for robotic vendors to gain market share and increase the adoption of robots in many applications. Similarly, vendors are also focusing on improving the capability of robots to increase their adoption in handing, degating, and deflashing applications in various industries.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rise in implementation of lean and flexible manufacturing. Lean manufacturing is a method for waste reduction in the manufacturing facility, without compromising on productivity. It also considers other wastes such as waste generated through overburden or uneven loads. Robots eliminate the need for plant shutdown at the time of shift change and reduce the chances of defects in products.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Highly priced robots. Handling, degating, and deflashing robots are priced approximately 3-4 times more than CNC machining centers. Therefore, owing to uncertain profitability perception, many industrial producers do not prefer making such a significant investment in robotics solutions. Although the prototype testing of handling, degating, and deflashing robots directs toward a positive financial scenario, they are yet to exhibit their full market potential in real-world applications owing to their limited adoption. Therefore, it will be difficult for industrial manufacturers to accept these robots without a long-term project scope and justified investment scenario.
