Reduce Production Cost - A quick return on investment (ROI) outweighs the initial setup costs. All of the following automation advantages reduce production cost.
Decrease in Part Cycle Time - Alean manufacturing line is crucial for increasing efficiency. Robotics can work longer and faster which increases production rate.
Improved Quality and Reliability - Automation is precise and repeatable. It ensures the product is manufactured with the same specifications and process every time. Repairs are few and far between.
Better Floor Space Utilization - By decreasing a footprint of a work area by automating parts of your production line, you can utilize the floor space for other operations and make the process flow more efficient.
Reduce Waste - Robots are so accurate that the amount of raw material used can be reduced, decreasing costs on waste.
Saves Local Jobs - Instead of moving your company to a location with lower labor costs, incorporate automation in a few key areas. This will increase your product through-put and increase your profit so you can keep your company in the current location.
Stay Competitive - Reduction in schedule and cost attracts customers. Automation helps provide the highest throughput with least amount of spending.
