Automation as a key to the future
Can you imagine your life without a washing machine, a dishwasher or a hand mixer? Of course not, but over 100 years ago, the stories about appliances running on electricity would be dismissed as science fiction. Yet, those are just some examples of automation in our daily life. Why? They make our life easier, save time and money and help us handle repeatable daily activities. Automation and robotization in manufacturing are similar. Always to your benefit.
Human and machine as a well-coordinated team
We are usually sceptical of new and unfamiliar solutions, yet they allow us to enter the world of tomorrow and change the work philosophy. The modern approach aims to support the personnel in their tasks, in particular routine tasks which require physical strength. The tasks are passed to the machines or robotic systems which are accurate, efficient and cost-efficient. Automation means investment in the optimum use of human resources, manufacturing processes efficiency and increase in company profitability. In a longer term perspective it means an established position not only on the current but also on the future market.
Time is money
An old proverb says that time is money. Automation and robotization will allow the companies to manufacture more goods quicker using the same machines without increasing the employment costs. A robot-operated machines can carry out the assembly tasks (and more) several times faster than humans to allow the human potential to be used to undertake other, more creative tasks, including supervision over the manufacturing process.
The manufacturing positions are often specialized, and with a busy schedule, each absence causes delays, and in extreme cases – downtime. In this case, the employer faces potential losses and the employee fears taking a sick day off, since the absence may result in production downtime. Automation and robotization can easily solve this problem.
For companies with high turnover rate, the induction period and time required to train a new employee in repeatable manual tasks takes time and the manufacturing schedules usually fail. Robotization and automation ensure that the production orders are manufactured as scheduled.
The devil’s in the detail
Incorrectly clamped part? Incorrectly assembled product or assembly error? Automation and robotization guarantee process repeatability and accuracy of each part for the highest quality of end product.
Meeting the client’s requirements
Apart from the highest and constant quality of the end product, automatic production lines guarantee comfort and security. The client will not receive any out of specification products and the manufacturer will avoid costly and troublesome complaints.
In our local, thriving and highly competitive economy, finding new personnel can be difficult and time-consuming. Investment in automation and robotization allows the companies to eliminate the problems that can delay or even completely stop the company development.
Costs under control
Ever-growing production costs affect the market competitiveness of the end product. How to prevent it? Automation allows the company to predict the long-term production costs and maintain the price at a constant level to avoid surprises.
You’re either moving forward or you’re moving backward
The economy has proven it to be true. The best results are achieved by companies focusing on development and innovation. Modern technologies allow to increase company profitability and set out new standards in manufacturing. Many entrepreneurs has been eliminated by better developed companies gaining a competitive edge with automation and investments in advanced solutions.
A scenario for the future
Good entrepreneur can predict market trends in the field and are not afraid of changes and development. By investing in development, the company decides to choose a solution with a good return on investment that offers a great scenario for the future. Calculation shows that on average the investment in REXIO robot pallet cell pays for itself in just 2 years, depending on the production process. Considering all the benefits of automation it is the best investment of capital for the modern company.
