In 2017 Lely strengthened its basis for a leading role in robotics and farm management for the dairy farm
2017 was again a special year for Lely. Following the sale and transfer in October of the Forage activities to the American AGCO, the company's focus is fully on the future in robotics and farm management. Among other things, the celebration of 25 years of robot milking worldwide created a new élan within the organisation. In 2017, Lely therefore experienced growth of the order portfolio, as well as an increase in the market share in dairy automation. The turnover in 2017 amounted to 506 million euros. Robotics and farm management showed a strong growth of 12%, with a clear acceleration in the second half of the year compared to 2016. A significant contribution to this growth was made by North America and Japan, followed by Western Europe.

Industrial robots more flexible thanks to soccer and care robots
Dealing with the unexpected (read: non-programmed events) is a routine task for TU Eindhoven’s soccer and care robots. After all, you never know what an opponent or user will do next. Industrial robots, too, can benefit from increased independence and autonomy. For this reason, the university has set up a pioneering research project together with industrial partners - included Lely - to provide mobile industrial robots with an open world view that adapts to changes in the environment. An important aspect of this is that the robots learn to understand what they see, allowing them to adapt better to new circumstances and situations.
