Robots first started to be used in industries in the 1960’s and since then there have been many changes. Robots can now be installed much quicker and with much lower costs and it makes no difference to their effectiveness whether your business is small or large.
Users no longer have to master complex programming languages to use Robots in the work place and can simply guide the robot through a sequence of events.
Many businesses have sent jobs offshore because they simply cannot compete with low cost foreign labor, Robot automation allows manufacturing to compete by creating more jobs by raising productivity.

Business owners need as much information as they can get in order to understand the benefits of Robot automation and the changes it can bring. Robot automation offers manufacturers growing opportunities to save costs, increase productivity and remain competitive.
