What is Automation?

Automation refers to the integration of technology and machinery to perform tasks without human intervention. Harnessing the power of robotics and software to streamline production can increase output, improve consistency and reduce the costs of manual labor. Highly valuable when managing high-risk or repetitive tasks, automation is becoming increasingly popular within manufacturing processes.

Practical Applications of Automation

There are countless practical applications for Automation technology. Some industry-specific examples of automotive applications include:

  • 3D Printing: 3D printers generate a unique code to automate the construction of complex CAD designs to rapidly produce both prototypes and products for market.
  • Warehouse Management: to increase efficiency, automated systems can pick, sort and package products ready for shipping. Eliminating these time-consuming tasks for employees also them to turn their attention toward other tasks like quality control and problem solving.
  • Electronics Manufacturing: from placing electrical components onto circuit boards to testing functionality, automation can be used to enhance all parts of the electronics manufacturing process to create safe and reliable systems.  

Benefits of Automation

Automation can be used to streamline countless process within (and beyond) the manufacturing sector. However, some universal benefits include:

  • Increased Productivity: automating labour-intensive, time-consuming processes can improve overall efficiency whilst allowing employees to focus on other projects that require creative or critical thinking.
  • Greater Accuracy and Consistency: automated systems effectively minimize the risk of errors and that can occur when performing manual tasks. In turn, standardized quality is much easier to achieve, thus creating greater reliability for businesses.
  • Long-Term Savings: whilst initiating automated processes comes at a cost, automation often produces long-term cost savings by decreasing waste, optimizing resource usage, and improving energy efficiency.
  • Improved Safety: by automating hazardous and physically demanding tasks, businesses can significantly reduce any risk of injury, creating a safer working environment for employees.
