High production costs translate to lower profits, and even in the most profitable of businesses it makes sense to reduce costs for a better bottom line
Whilst capital costs may be a major influence in the decision to automate, in actual fact automation and robotic solutions can not only decrease costs, they provide dramatic increases in production capabilities through increased speed, reduction of bottle necks and the capability to run 24/7.
Some industries in particular have high labor...
The production of granular material as part of the build-up agglomeration process is currently very much the trend. In the face of rising energy costs, thermal granulating processes are becoming increasingly uneconomical. In addition, operators often want the flexibility to be able to produce different target particle sizes or grain size ranges all in a
The science fiction of factories staffed by robotic workers has rapidly become reality in many industries, more recently lamb and beef processing, where the focus and main impact is on improving yield rather than replacing workers. Since early 2000, Scott Technology Ltd has been meeting the challenges of the highly paced meat processing industry with
