At a recent opening of the new Reliance facility located in Ballysimon, An Tánaiste Simon Coveney commented on the partnership with Universal Robots: “Reliance has set the standard for what everyone wants to reach and surpass. Because of Brexit, the Irish economy will look towards automation companies such as Reliance for guidance.”
Reliance is the Irish partner for Universal Robots and is working currently with companies of all sizes throughout Ireland to advise how repetitive industrial processes can be streamlined, to reduce cost, increase efficiency and improve reliability.
Cobots are now the fastest growing segment of industrial automation, expected to jump ten-fold to 34 per cent of all industrial robot sales by 2025, according to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA).
As a first mover, UR has kept its market leader position with a 60 per cent global share of the cobot market, according to BIS Research, selling more cobots than all competitors combined.
Speaking about their new partnership with UR, Mr. Creighton said, “It is our goal to be the leader to identify, learn about, and introduce these latest technologies as they evolve to continually help our customers to compete and grow in an ever competitive market place.”
