Could robots replace nearly half of us in the workforce?

On the 28th of May 2014 the ABC 7.30 Report featured Peter Harrison and Hilustre Coatings robotic spray painting system in a report about the growth in industrial robotics in the near future. Hilustre’s system, designed by Peter Harrison, was included in the report due to its innovative use of robotics in an industrial application.

It requires one operator to load the items and then the robot efficiently paints the components with greater speed and more consistent quality than is possible with a manual painter.

Only the spray painting division currently has a robot in operation; however the future may hold an extension into the powder coating division.
