Danish Robot Association has published statistics which show that the number of installed industry robots increased by 11% in 2004. According to Leif Dalum, chairman of Danish Robot Association, the growth is particularly due to SMEs increasingly investing in robots and other production equipment which can automate and make production more efficient.

 

"Vision controlled robots for installation work and packaging is one of the most important growth areas, which makes it possible to automate a number of production processes which have not been cost-effective in the past due to batch manufacturing. Now the technology is so flexible that many batches can be produced with the same equipment and with very brief set-up time", says Leif Dalum.

 

A robot has a typical lifetime of 20 years, and the Danish Robot Association has recorded a tiny number of robots which have been taken out of production. A robot normally costs between DKK 300,000 – 400,000 (USD 51,000 – 68,000). The news is reported by business newspaper ErhvervsBladet.
