    What is factory automation?

    Factory automation is the use of technology to automate manufacturing processes, meaning processes can occur in real-time with little to no human input. This is often through robotics that doesn't require a controller in its day to day functionality and motion control. The goal is to increase productivity (automations can work quicker than humans) and reduce costs.

    What is an example of our factory automation solutions?

    Some examples of factory automation systems include fixed, programmable, and flexible robot automation.

    Fixed automation refers to the fixed configuration of machinery to act out repetitive tasks. 

    Programmable automation has the capacity to produce products in batches; between batches, machinery can change tasks through re-programming to produce new products. 

    Like programmable automation, flexible automation has the ability to change configurations for new tasks. However, this does not have to occur in batches but can produce new products whenever the tooling is changed.

    What are some typical industrial automation applications?

    Solutions for factory automation are often favoured in repetitive tasks that are labour-intensive and time-consuming. Some common examples include assembly line manufacturing, packaging and labelling, material handling, and quality control. In these cases, robotic arms are frequently used to perform tasks that are dangerous and monotonous, as well as those requiring consistent precision.
    To fully reap the benefits of using solutions for industrial automation, it's important to select the appropriate solution for a given application and to ensure that it is integrated properly into the production process.

    What are the benefits of factory automation?

    Some of the benefits of factory automation are:

    • Improved quality
    • Increased productivity and efficiency of process control systems
    • Consistent results and reliability
    • Reduced waste due to minimising mistakes 
    • Safer working conditions
