Industry 4.0 and the unstoppable rise of automation is redefining manufacturing processes once and for all. Manufacturers are presented with the challenge of updating and digitalising their systems as a means of future-proofing their businesses. Failure to do so risks them falling behind their customer’s demands.
Digitisation, automation and data collection are the key principles of Industry 4.0 that manufacturers must align themselves with. By doing so, manufacturers can improve efficiencies while keeping costs low and maintaining a quality customer experience.
A convergence of several new technologies has allowed for wholly new kinds of automated systems, which will allow companies to remove human workers from yet more parts of their operations. One major development in the field of so-called ‘collaborative robots’: robotic systems designed to safely work alongside their human coworkers. Enabled not
just by advances in machine vision, computing power and forcing sensing, collaborative robots also make heavy use of new and more powerful software.
Automation and Industry 4.0 is completely redefining out-dated processes and will help support the longevity of a business. It is a particularly exciting time for the manufacturing industry and businesses must respond to these technological developments and ensure they are meeting the ever-changing demands of their customers.
