Robot Orders Fall 4 Percent in 2Q

North American robotics companies saw orders from North American customers fall four percent in the second quarter of 2002 versus the comparable period last year, according to the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), Ann Arbor, MI. Through the first six months of the year, new robot orders totaled 4850 units valued at $337.9 million, off one percent in nits sold through the same period last year, and two percent in revenue. The good news: orders have turned up for robots used in material-handling, arc-welding and dispensing/coating applications. New orders for material-handling robots jumped 20 percent in the second quarter.
