Robot welding in car production. Showers of sparks created as a robot arm (at upper centre) spot- welds a car component. 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.
