The growth in various manufacturing facilities across the globe is expected to positively influence the robotic bow tying market in the near future. Manufacturers are also presenting packaging robots, along with innovative technological features and add-on perks like customized operational speed, accuracy, efficiency and high precision.
Robotic packaging manufacturers have begun designing packaging robots as per company requirements. One of the packaging robot manufacturer introduced a pick and pack robot for a pharmaceutical company where the robots can pick and then place the cartridges two times faster than the traditional packaging robots that are presently used. More value added integration of technology in the robotic bow tying systems by manufacturers will increase the demand for the packaging robots and drive the robotic bow tying system market.
With a focus on innovative marketing strategies, leading companies have come up with aesthetically-pleasing packaging designs and solutions. One of them is the packing the product in the form of a gift. Human beings can consistently tie beautiful looking bows at a rate of nearly five bows per minute; however, maintaining this consistency for long-term becomes a challenge. Tying bows all day long along with other trading work increases the risk of repetitive motion damages and Carpel tunnel syndrome. Automating this process can not only improve worker safety, but also lead to increased production output.
The first robotic bow tying system was manufactured for Esther Price Fine Chocolates, a chocolate manufacturer. It was a flexible automation system in which 3D simulation software was used for precise programming and it also reduced the size of the robot. A Yaskawa Motoman’s MotoSim EG, offline programming package was used which enables precise 3D automation of the robotic system. This robotic system could tie two boxes per minute for 12-14 hours consistently. The 3D simulation software makes a successful entry in the industrial motion control and robotics.
