Key benefits of industrial automation
Automation is considered a convenience when used to make day to day activities such us auto-paying bills or automatic doors easier. However, when it’s used on a larger scale such as in the manufacturing industry, then it’s considered a necessity. In fact, the use of automation systems has had a big impact on the manufacturing industry.
Below are some key benefits of industrial automation.
Human beings are reliable in offering quality services but they are prone to errors. This creates the need to replace them with automated industrial technologies since they are more accurate. When applied in the manufacturing industry, these systems help factor out the possibility of human error. As a result, you get consistently high-quality products.
Once you pay the initial cost of introducing robotic automation in your company, the only other cost is energy and maintenance. This is unlike human employees that you’ve to pay monthly benefits and give annual leave. Simply, robotic systems have a higher return on investment than human beings.
Unlike human beings that are prone to error, robotic systems have a very high accuracy rate. This makes them use the exact amount of raw material needed, ensuring little to no waste.
The number of accidents and deaths are higher in areas where all manufacturing responsibilities are left to human beings. Such accidents and deaths can be minimised by using robotic systems in undertaking tasks that are too dangerous for human beings.
Robotic systems remove human beings from hazardous areas such as exposure to chemicals, extreme temperature areas, and areas with inadequate oxygen.
No matter how dedicated your employees are, they will need a break from work every now and then. This is unlike industrial robots that work faster than humans and can operate non-stop 24/7. This kind of efficiency increases overall production.
Automated industrial systems relieve humans of the harder manufacturing task and leave them with fine-tuning processes and improving technologies. They are also left with enough time to focus on things that cannot be automated. As a result, as a manufacturer, you are able to invent new and innovative products and improve the consumer experience.
