Press Releases

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Robotic Cutting, Deburring, and Finishing Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global robotic cutting, deburring, and finishing market: BB, FANUC, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, KUKA, and Yaskawa Motorman.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ARCOS, ATI Industrial Automation, Fastems, Genesis Sytems, and Romheld Automation.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing demand for human-robot collaboration. Application-specific requirements from manufacturing industries are expected to augment the development of cage-free robots. This technology will facilitate robots to perform industrial manufacturing operations in close proximity to humans. The concept of human-robot collaboration explains the assistance of robots to the human operator. Precisely, this concept signifies that robots are not the replacement of human, but complements the capabilities and relieves human operators in doing hazardous tasks. Human-robot collaboration can be used in heavy-duty works such as the lifting of heavy loads, cutting, deburring, and polishing of materials.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing need for accuracy and productivity in manufacturing process. The changing dynamics of the competitive industry has led to demand for increased productivity and reduced processing time. The intense competitive pressure has forced manufacturers to run their production process 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and stop only during maintenance. With traditional machines, all the cutting, deburring, and finishing operations in the manufacturing process are carried out on each workpiece with operator intervention. It results in low productivity, low accuracy, and often requires break during the manufacturing process. Thus, the concept of industrial robots came into existence to carry out various industrial operations such as material handling and material removal operation in a more convenient and affordable manner. These robots are built to perform cutting, deburring, and finishing task repeatedly without ever taking a break. In the opinion of many reputed machinists, the productivity of the factory can be tripled by replacing traditional machines with cutting, deburring, and finishing robots.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Growing operational difficulties due to technical challenges. In a machining operation, the reactionary forces on workpiece depend on the hardness and machinability of materials. As cutting, deburring, and finishing robots lack the required rigidity, the system sometimes vibrates and affects the finishing quality and accuracy of the workpiece. The robots deliver desired output while machining softer materials such as aluminum. However, they face an intense challenge while performing a machining operation on cold-rolled steel and hard materials. This problem is encountered due to the lack of rigidity of robots during machining those hard materials.
