Industrial Automation Systems Selection

Automation 101: Industrial Automation Systems

In today’s time, with a rapidly evolving industrial landscape and an increased need for efficiency and innovation, industrial manufacturing companies have turned to automation to help move the process along. Industrial automation systems are the perfect addition to the manufacturing process, offering increased precision, cost-effectiveness, scalability, overall efficiency and more. 

In this article, we explore the fundamental aspects of industrial automation to help you better understand the significance of robotics’ advancing technology.

The Significance of Industrial Automation Systems

Industrial automation systems encompass a wide range of technologies and strategies designed to assist in the process of manufacturing within industrial settings. These robots are assigned many different types of tasks depending on their capabilities, but each and every aspect proves to be vital to the process. What are some of the primary objectives of industrial automation systems?

  1. Reducing need for human intervention: In a world of labor shortages and Covid-19, being able to keep up the same pace of manufacturing with fewer workers is a huge task. The use of automated systems can help replace humans in repetitive tasks, and also reduce the risk of danger to workers.
  2. Optimizing production: Automated machines can often complete tasks at a pace that is unachievable to humans. This quality makes these machines perfect for speeding up the assembly line.
  3. Ensuring quality: Another trait unique to robots is the ability to be consistently exact. This means that automated processes are far less susceptible to human error, which helps ensure quality and consistency within the manufacturing process.
  4. Creating a cost-effective environment: While initial costs may be a concern when it comes to automation, it is important to look at the big picture concerning investment. Implementing industrial automated systems is a cost-effective way to account for lower labor costs and higher production rates.
