How AI is boosting the power of robotic solutions

31 January 2024

The application of artificial intelligence (AI) to industrial robots is creating a new breed of solutions offering new levels of flexibility and productivity, whilst also answering industry challenges, especially labour shortages. Julian Ware, UK & Ireland Sales Manager for ABB Robotics, explains.

UK households and businesses are facing many challenges, with the hangover from COVID-19, war in Europe, increased energy prices, and inflation all having an impact. 

For manufacturers, there are added pressures in the form of shortages of both skilled and unskilled labour, as well as disrupted supply chains. Businesses urgently need to improve their resilience, building flexibility and adaptability into their processes to enable them to weather the shocks caused by these disruptions. Increasingly, manufacturers are looking to robotic automation, seeking to build resilience against any future shocks, while also promising a boost to productivity. 

One of the trends encouraging this adoption is energy efficiency. Robots save energy in numerous ways, from reducing the need to heat production lines to using smart, power-saving modes of operation.
