Market players have produced new Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm (SCARA) robots that have enhanced capabilities to offer better accuracy, speed up tasks, and improve overall efficiency. They are focused on producing outstanding quality machines for various applications in the manufacturing industry. Moreover, they have been producing in-house machines for gaining various benefits in terms of cost and functionality. Updated machines have been produced that have a simplified design and provide better flexibility. The industry for SCARA robots is gaining momentum. According to the report published by Allied Market Research, the global SCARA robot market is expected to reach $14.78 billion by 2026. Following are some of the activities taking place in the industry.

The launch of new product has been one of the major trends among the market players to gain more market share and offer advanced capabilities to users. Leading producers have been riding on the wave of advanced technologies and including capabilities that users can utilize to carry out tasks that were not possible before. They have launched collaborative robots (cobot)of which SCARA robot is a part of. Toshiba Machine (TM), the manufacturer of industrial robots, launched a SCARA duo-arm cobot. This cobot is an extension of the company’s work in SCARA robots. This SCARA cobot features two arms and can be utilized for rapid handling applications. The display offers guidance on how this robot can be utilized for handling delicate electronics items along with packaging applications.This is an addition to the suite of highly accurate machines required in industrial applications. It also features robotic vision system. The company aims to represent the outstanding quality through their products and facilitate some of the processes and applications in the industry.

Along with design of new machines, market players have also been updating their existing designs and offering advanced capabilities. Douglas Machine, one of the leading players in the industrial robot manufacturing industry, launched the update of its shrink wrap multipackerof Contour 60-Series. The single SCARA robot can be used for film wrapping the cans and bottles.The film wrapping section of the machine relied on a pair of linear thrusters; however, they have been replaced by a vertical thruster and a horizontal thruster. Steve Lipps, the Senior Director of Product Management at Douglas, stated that the previous approach was mechanical and complex. The updated design provides better flexibility than before along with a wider range of motion with reduced complexity. The workforce related issues are addressed with less maintenance required for the parts, easy cleaning routine, and few changeover points.

Mr. Lipps added that the company prefers producing its own robots rather than integrating from other sources. The in-house design results in a simple mechanism that can be optimized for actuation and framework. Another advantage the in-house design offers is that there is no need to find right form factor at correct price. Moreover, there needs to be another control system to manage the robot independently from other functions of machine. From the standpoint of programmability, it is efficient for the company to program and include all controls in the central controller.
