Dramatically simplifying automation with a single platform for a full range of collaborative and light industrial robotic systems from the Danish company.
New Delhi, June 18, 2020: Denmark-based OnRobot, a one-stop-shop for collaborative applications, is investing in India with the introduction of its award-winning One System Solution. This system enables a seamless integration of OnRobot's products with a wide range of leading collaborative and light industrial robot brands. Along with the One System Solution, it has launched two new products:
1- The complete plug-and-play intelligent OnRobot Screwdriver, which can be deployed for different applications in minutes, with built-in smart features – including precise torque and embedded axis control – that simplify programming and drive productivity, quality, and RoI, and
2- The innovative OnRobot Gecko Single Pad (SP), no-mark adhesive gripper – Gecko Single Pad (SP) gripper offers no-mark automation for flat, shiny, and perforated workpieces with no electricity or air supply required
As robot adoption grows globally, India is expected to follow suit and is poised for an industrial automation revolution. Industrial robot sales hit a new record of 4,771 in 2018, increasing 39 percent from 2017 – the highest jump among the largest markets.
“Businesses are realising the benefits of automation and robotic solutions, more so as the impact from the Covid-19 pandemic sweeps across the globe. Automation adoption is crucial, especially for small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) who have smaller cash reserves and a more limited customer base, making them vulnerable to disruptions.
“Fortunately, these companies have new options in automation adoption as collaborative applications offer a fast, easy and affordable alternative to bulky traditional industrial robots. This enables SMEs to build flexibility in their production processes, enhance supply chain competitiveness and improve worker wellbeing,” said Niels Ole Sinkbæk Sørensen, Country Manager, South Asia, Southeast Asia & Oceania.
There are approximately 42.5 million SMEs in India. They comprise 95 per cent of industrial units in the country and employ 106 million workers, 40 per cent of India's workforce. “India is now among the 15 largest robot markets globally. With demand in the country coming from industries such as automotive, rubber and plastics, metal and electronics, and with huge potential for collaborative automation, India is an important market for OnRobot,” Niels added. OnRobot distributes its products through a number of channel partners located in Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Haryana. This includes Blue Star Engineering & Electronics, Alstrut, WIPRO, Precimac and Encon Systems.
