5 Reasons to Use Automation To Improve Your Manufacturing Process

Manufacturers use various engineered systems and software to control their production processes. The control measures used can vary depending on the complexity of the product, level of precision required in the process, and quality standards of the industry or brand. Systems used to increase process control may include: assembly automation equipment, data processing equipment, vision systems, condition monitoring, process sensors and actuators to control output quality. 

By incorporating the latest technology into your manufacturing process control, you are able to:

1. Operate efficiently

2. Improve output quality

3. Increase safety measures

4. Lower overhead costs 

5. Maximize profitability

Whether you are improving the manufacturing process of your current facilities or developing a new product line and implementing a new production line, consider these benefits as you are evaluating your long term return on investments: 

Increased Quality Control & Output

You can improve the quality of your output by ensuring that specifications are precisely met, greatly reducing the amount of human error in production. Each product will be precisely measured so exact recipes are followed, allowing for a consistent product. Data can also be collected for quality analytics. This data can be used to make informed decisions on component replacements and other changes aimed at improving the final product. 

Reduced Labor Costs

Oftentimes by automating manufacturing processes, you can increase production by having multiple batches or projects going simultaneously at an increased speed and accuracy. This increases output and profitability while requiring less employee attention. The amount of human labor required to complete each step of the process will decrease, saving on labor costs. 

Increased Safety 

If any steps in the manufacturing process of your products contain safety hazards, or if any deviations can become hazards, employee safety can be greatly increased with automation. By using an automated system to perform and oversee processes that include hazardous materials or byproducts, human interaction is minimized, and consistency in temperatures, pressures and exhaust measures is increased, increasing the safety of the work environment. 

Maximized Profitability 

Automating the manufacturing process or parts of it, reduces the need for human labor, cutting your labor costs and increasing the speed and capacity of production. By increasing the rate of production with automated production and decreasing the amount of error therefore wasted product, materials, and energy, your manufacturing process is optimally functioning, maximizing your profit potential.
