Industrial Robots: The New Era Of Industrial AutomationSource: Optima Control Solutions Ltd
The 1940s witnessed the dawning of a modern day industrial revolution with the introduction of process automation. More recently, it could be argued that another new industrial revolution has begun of even greater significance; the widespread use of industrial robots in the world of manufacturing is now upon us.
Each new revolutionary epoch is defined by one fundamental benefit – increased productivity - we produce more goods more efficiently and of higher quality than at any other previous time.
Initially, robots were conceived in the imaginations of science fiction writers, and have since established a dominant presence with wide practical application in many spheres of the industrial world and are now employed in the most demanding production environments such as:
- Rubber and Plastics
- Food and Beverage
