Automation’s the Name of the Game

May 19, 2016  

Manufacturing is wedded to technology, driven by innovation and, when utilized properly, enhances our livelihood and well-being.  Activities are carried out more effectively and efficiently. Dangerous, tedious and fatiguing tasks are automated.  Workers no longer spend a life of drudgery in monstrous, smoke belching factories.  Instead, many run the show in modern buildings, controlling machines, operating equipment, making sure the work is done, and production hums.

There is still plenty of room for workers in modern factories: it’s just neither to their benefit nor to that of the manufacturer to expose them to unwanted physical burdens, spinal injuries, dismemberment, and other health risks. If a machine can perform the chore, especially in a more cost-effective and efficient way; if production doesn’t have to stop for broken bones, severed appendages, burns, or chest wounds; if this also leads to increased profits and a happier workforce, then modern manufacturing welcomes it with open robotic arms.
