      Hi Emily. Industry robots can be programmed to do pretty much any repetitive task. The limits to what you can get a robot to do depends on how much money you’re willing to spend on improving it, what size robot you have and how good your programming skills are.
      You can get small 6kg robots that are about 2m high at a full stretch or a 1000kg robot arm for lifting large or heavy weights through a production line.
