Summary
  • The robotics industry is undergoing a slump with 1987 sales dropping between 20 and 30 percent from 1986 levels. GMF Robotics, the top supplier of robots, expects sales of roughly $100 million in 1987 vs 1986 sales of $186 million; the manufacturer has laid off around 33 percent of its personnel during the current slump. A reduction in orders from US auto makers, especially those expected from GM, is a prime reason for the faltering robotics industry. Flexibility of a robot is the main advantage of having a robot perform in a factory. Depending on the product it is producing and the job it is performing, a robot can move in a variety of ways. The flexibility of the robot will allow immediate changes in a robot-equipped production factory and lead to significant reductions in retooling costs for new product introductions.
