Swabbing is a manual method of lubricating moulds used to form glass bottles that is used during production process. Swabbing robots is capable of applying lubricants to any type of blank, from NNPB lightweight bottles to heavy bottles. Swabbing robots are an automatic blank swabbing system that are easy to operate and provide immediate payback on any production line with increased safety for the workers on the shop floor. Compared to traditional swabbing robots, these robots used less lubrication.

Growing need for healthier working environment and continuous technological innovations in automation are some of the factors responsible for rapid growth of the global swabbing robots market. Swabbing robot emits hardly any pollution, which will make the working environment much healthier and safer. Increasing applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and growing implementation of humanoids are the key factors impelling the growth of swabbing robots market across the globe. AI helps robots to understand the language, read faces, understand emotions, and even imitate human emotions. To fulfil the tasks of assisted living, several companies are using AI technology, thereby increasing the growth of the swabbing robots market across the globe. Furthermore, recent advances in assistive technologies, artificial intelligence technologies and machine learning algorithms are fueling the growth of the market.
