Automation for Manufacturing Keeps Evolving

Industrial automation is rapidly diversifying to augment human workers in any production environment.

Robotics 24/7

Robotics 24/7 has been tracking how manufacturers, designers, integrators, and suppliers are looking to automation to augment human capabilities as labor shortfalls persist.

In this issue, we share insights from both the International Federation of Robotics and the Association for Advancing Automation. Their data provides some cause for optimism.

At the same time, robots are only as good as the people working with them, the software controlling them, and the data that they yield for business decisions.

This Special Focus Issue looks at retraining efforts, robots in metalworking, and the importance of precise motion control for emerging applications. Most robots aren’t plug and play, so you’ll need to assess tasks and processes before picking the right tools.
