Automation and Robot Readiness on Precihole Machines
Efficiency, Productivity and Continuity are on top of every machine shop manager’s mind today. The fatigue endured by a human worker during a day’s work in loading unloading parts on machines, moving material around the shop, lifting heavy parts can cause chronic body injuries. Use of robotics and automation in shops really assists in ensuring that factories produce parts continually and consistently without interruption making our country less dependent on imports. In today’s world with a global pandemic affecting most countries, use of robotics and automation has become all the more relevant to ensure that factories run at optimal levels, especially for medical and defense applications.
