Automation in Manufacturing
Monday, June 25, 2018

In the global environment of today, manufacturers are trying desperately to take the lead on their competitors. Some manufacturers have been able to get the upper hand by leveraging new technology. Smart machines and industrial automation is increasing productivity, creating agile supply chains and cutting costs of manufacturing.

Embracing automation in manufacturing now is more important than it ever was. There are several reasons why automation is important for manufacturing and in this post we’ll share the three most significant ones.

Automation Brings Several Advantages

Why consider automating the manufacturing process? The most important advantage automation brings is that labor productivity is increased. When tasks are automated, less time is required to complete them. In some areas, workers show more commitment in completing the tasks when they work alongside automated robots. Labor cost is also reduced with automation.

With all these savings that automation brings, manufactures can invest more in automation to completely replace manual operations. Automation can also improve working environment and increase safety as workers don’t have to carry on dangerous tasks when machines are automated. They can just supervise the robot to get the job done more effectively and safely.

Smart Machines are Accurate

We are currently witnessing the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) and it is bringing new technology in industrial landscape, called the “smart machines”. Smart machines are able to communicate with one another and take decisions based on this communication without human assistance.

Smart machines are able handle repetitive and fast tasks with incredible accuracy. A task where there is high risk of human error, smart machines can be used to get the job done with 100% accuracy. The more accurate the manufacturing process is the more productive it will be.

Smart machines are also able to last longer than conventional machines. Components experience less wear and tear and as a result have greater service life. Smart machines are programmed to monitor their health. They can find problems on their own and diagnose them, often without human interference.

Automation Delivers Agility

In future, industries will shift towards three major technologies: smart machines, nanotechnology and nanotech sensors. These components will provide wireless connectivity and information will be processed in real time. With nanosensros, all the manufacturing work will be measured. The biggest benefit these technologies will bring is that they will make supply chain more agile.

Manufactures will be able to respond more quickly to changes in demand. With greater agility, businesses will stay more competitive in the mature industry.
For manufacturers who wish to cut costs and boost productivity, there’s no better solution than industrial automation. Emerging technologies can truly transform the manufacturing environment and smart machines can provide manufacturers the competitive advantage they wish to achieve in the industrial landscape.
