Market driver: advantages over traditional metal casting methods
The metal casting robots offer various advantages over traditional metal casting methods such as a higher payload capacity which helps in optimization of cycle times. This leads to an increase in productivity while ensuring consistency of product quality, speed, safety, and reliability.
Metal casting robots also help improve work-related safety due to a reduction in repetitive injuries. Also, they are more reliable for complex casting tasks and enable easy integration with peripheral devices, such as grippers and deflashing presses. Casting robots can meet the challenges of sands and lubricants of high-performance foundries. They also facilitate planning of the casting process with the help of computer-aided design and simulation.

Market trend: technological innovations to ease integration of metal casting robots
Technological innovations to ease integration of metal casting robots through various methods such as virtual commissioning, off-line programming, and simulation. Virtual commissioning is gaining traction over on-site commissioning, as it helps in the reduction of time and cost by 50%-60%. Virtual commissioning supports the entire life cycle of metal casting robots, apart from the initial design and decision-making processes.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for robotics research, “Virtual commissioning is used by system integrators, proposal engineers, and sales personnel to showcase metal casting robots to potential customers. As all retooling and rework happen in a virtual environment, there is a significant reduction in the cost incurred. This can, in turn, help system integrators to improve the delivery of their services and improve efficiency.”
Market challenge: high initial investment
Initial installation of metal casting robots includes investments in fixtures, tooling, and costs incurred for preventive maintenance, safety, operator training, and the use of complementary peripheral equipment. This has deterred metal foundries and industrial players with in-house foundries from investing in metal casting robots. Considering the high initial investment, many existing SMEs prefer to use traditional methods of welding.
