We are in a technology revolution! The fourth industrial revolution describes sweeping adoption of smart technology across many industry sectors, most particularly in manufacturing. Current Robotics allow for greater levels of automated production. Altec's broad experience working with robotic applications in many environments make us an ideal partner for businesses looking to take the plunge into Industry 4.0.
Robotics & Manufacturing: A Match Made in Heaven
Whatever your most pressing manufacturing issues, robots can be part of the solution. Robots can alleviate labour shortages, improve output per working hour, provide safer working environments for staff, and even raise the standard of your quality assurance processes. We can consult with you to identify processes ripe for automation, engineer custom controls to support your automation efforts, and design and manufacture robotic components to help you get more done in less time.
Applications of Robotics
How can a robot benefit your bottom line? Let's look at some reasons to explore robotic process automation in your business:
- Robots protect workers. One criticism of robotics is that it's a "job killer". In fact, robots create desirable jobs that align with North America's knowledge economy. Robots can do the kind of repetitive or dangerous work that makes hiring in manufacturing such a challenge, while creating positions for robotics programmers and technicians.
- Robots don't get tired. Robots can work overnight, through weekends and holidays, with minimal direct supervision. This frees up time for workers to focus on quality assurance, sales, or anything else that benefits your business.
- Robots keep North American manufacturers competitive. Global economics make on-shore and near-shore manufacturing more expensive than off-shore options. Robots improve manufacturing efficiency to close that cost gap, ensuring the long-term viability of your manufacturing business.
