Most people believe that automation is only relevant to the concepts of marketing or manufacturing, however technological advances indicate there are and will be great changes to the different industrial sectors. There are currently a wide variety of automation processes for different sectors, which will help them to benefit financially. But what will this benefit actually look like?
When a company automates, it can reduce costs for consumers who in turn stimulate other sectors of the economy. The savings that these companies make can be used productively, by investing in improvements.
Let’s go over some of the industries that have benefited from automation.
Thanks to automation, the automotive industry managed to recover from the sector’s downturn, while the replacement of human labor has allowed tasks to be completed in less time, with a team of robots and humans working together.
The huge demand for electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets and televisions, has made electronic manufacturing one of the sectors that has benefited the most from robotic technology.
For the welding sector, robotic automation has been an important discovery since faster, higher-quality results are obtained while minimizing material waste.
Robotic automation in the military sector has proven to be effective in tasks such as deactivating bombs, collecting data in dangerous situations and the analysis of data for research reports, among others.
The precision offered by robotic technology has not only helped welding processes, but is also recognized as useful by the medical sector in managing the logistics of supplies and when used in delicate surgical procedures, providing excellent results.
So which sectors will be won over by the new advances in robotic automation?
A successful automation tactic in companies involves choosing the right technology for each of the activities to be automated, that is, the decision to use robots with standard controllers or those operated with sensors or other intelligent devices, advanced software versions, simulation packages and specialized programming systems, etc.
Among the sectors to benefit are the art, entertainment, innovation and services sectors. With the extraordinarily rapid advance of technology, these sectors will be able to react in a short period of time. This will provide increased revenue, more free time, greater control and a sponsorship of their own work. The acquired capabilities of the robots will allow them to be used in environments that have been previously unexplored until now in terms of automation, allowing them to conquer new opportunities in the industry.
