Caption: Robot welding in car production. Multiple exposure image of a robot arm spot-welding the suspension unit of a car. The welding region is "white" hot, while a shower of orange sparks is produced. Robots are ideally suited to such precision tasks. They can perform repeated operations almost endlessly and their rate can be set to match the speed of the production line. The vast majority of cars in the developed world are now produced by robots.
