In today’s manufacturing space, the capability to make the products at hand often isn’t enough to remain truly competitive. Manufacturers are also expected to meet Industry 4.0’s ever-evolving standards for better quality, efficiency, and sustainability. That’s why industrial automation and custom robotic integration have become the go-to solution for many modern operations.
Generally, manufacturers come to Advanced Systems and Controls with production processes which are currently either too labor intensive, too complicated, too cumbersome, or yield too much scrap. Our job is to streamline these complex processes via special purpose machinery and robotic automation, thus providing a quicker, more precise and cost-effective manufacturing solution – minimizing wasted materials as well as wasted time and effort.
The Advantages of Custom Robotic Automation in Terms of Industry 4.0:
Whatever each manufacturer’s specific goals may be, robotic automation in manufacturing goes far beyond the aim to simply make products more quickly and cost-effectively.
While those advantages are crucial, automation also has profound effects on the market itself, the real lives of the workers in the factories across the globe, as well as the overall sustainability of our society. In addition to embracing new technological innovation, Industry 4.0 aims to align the overall production process and supply chain with all of these goals.
Freeing up Labor to Be More Productive
Automation isn’t just about reducing labor costs; it’s about freeing up your labor to achieve better things for your business. After all, nearly every menial or repetitive production line task that can be automated offers the opportunity for employees to be more productive elsewhere – for example, in process monitoring, or performing additional quality inspections to further ensure the consistency of your products.
Essentially, the less time, money and effort you have to spend on the manufacturing process itself, the more you can put into delivering a better end product. Robotic integration also saves employees from having to perform the cumbersome, mentally/physically taxing jobs that are better handled by machines, ultimately facilitating happier and healthier factories across the nation.
Less Material Waste for Better Sustainability
For many manufacturers, their factory automation goals are focused on achieving maximum efficiency in terms of material usage. Specifically, minimizing the amount of raw materials that go in, and consequently the amount of waste that comes out. Custom robotic automation facilitates higher efficiency by tailoring a unique production process to your unique products.
Whether achieving that level of optimization involves developing complex robotic assembly systems or an automated press solution, ASC is up to the challenge. With every project, we strive to not only minimize material costs but achieve better sustainability for your operation, thus a leaner and greener overall supply chain.
