Manufacturing is the backbone of many communities in the United States. This is the case in several communities across Michigan. While many automotive manufacturers have left the area, other companies have moved in to take up the slack and offer jobs and skills. Not only are there automotive parts in areas like Livonia, Michigan, but there are also robot and PLC equipment repair services.
Companies like IVS Incorporated and PSI Repair Services Inc. are newer to the manufacturing industry in Michigan. How can these companies benefit from robotic automation? It’s easy – what better to build or repair a robotic system than another robot? Robotic systems can assemble systems, repair systems, handle parts, etc. And, while some people believe that robotic automation takes away from jobs in an area, the reality is that by introducing robots into a manufacturing industry, workers are still needed to run the robots – they do not run autonomously. When workers are trained on these systems, they gain a greater, more flexible skill set than those who are working a line.
While there are other industries moving in to the Michigan manufacturing area, the automotive industry is still big in the area. Companies like NYX Inc. are thriving during the resurgence of the automobile industry in the U.S. These companies can also have an improved productivity by integrating robotics. Robot can be used to transfer parts to and from different machines, as well as loading and unloading parts and palletizing for transport. By investing in robotics, Jackson companies like NYX can speed up production and improve the quality of their products.
Michigan companies looking to integrate their manufacturing facilities can turn to RobotWorx for all their robot system and part needs. RobotWorx is a certified integrator for ABB, FANUC, Motoman and KUKA robotics. By choosing RobotWorx, companies are choosing to have access to hundreds of robot models and parts.
