About SCARA Robots Market in the Food & Beverage Industry
A Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm (SCARA) robot is a horizontally configured machine capable of horizontal movements; but such machines do not have rotary joints. Their movements are restricted to the horizontal axis. Modern SCARA robots are user-friendly with few backend-programming requirements, and can accelerate cycle times, increase throughput, and eliminate errors.
SCARA robots are typically mounted on a pedestal and move in X, Y, and Z planes. They can incorporate a theta axis at the end of the Z plane that helps with vertical assembling abilities, including pick-and-place operations. SCARA robots are rugged, fast, and highly durable machines preferred by most industries for assembling, and loading and unloading applications.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global SCARA robots shipped in the F&B industry to grow at a CAGR of 24.87% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global SCARA Robots Market in the Food & Beverage Industry: Adept Technology, Epson Robots, Kuka, Toshiba Machine and Yamaha Robotics.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, Denso Wave, Kawasaki Robotics, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, ST Robotics and Yaskawa Electric.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The success of a food and beverage unit depends on parallel processing, packaging, palletizing, and shipment of retail products with minimal lead time; this can be achieved with the implementation of robotics in the process lines. The implementation of application-specific robots has resulted in attaining the cost saving targets of the food and beverage industry market participants.”
According to the report, regulations in the food and beverage industry are driving the adoption of robots in this industry. Ratings such as IP65 and IP67 are designed to benchmark the handling of food items (such as meat) by robots. These ratings signify that robots are fit enough to handle food materials and products directly.
Further, the report states that low awareness about SCARA robots prevails in the F&B industry.
