1. IMPROVE PROCESS FLOW
When was the last time an in-depth process audit was performed at your organization? This should be considered the first step taken to identifying growth opportunities. You may consider hiring a team of experts to evaluate the overall production flow. Through the Value Engineering Program, you collaborate with MWSCO experts to identify opportunities, which might include automation. Robots can add flexibility to your production line and boost productivity. Robots can work all the time and will speed up production, and once programmed, they can easily switch between processes, helping you to meet future evolutions to your process flow.
2. REDUCE OPERATING COSTS
Increase your ability to be competitive. Robots can take up less floor space in your facility, allowing room for other things to boost your process flow. Automation is also a way to keep labor costs down, with the added benefit of freeing your most valuable asset— your employees—to apply themselves to higher-value tasks. Higher productivity is also achieved through decreased cycle times and reduced scrap or waste.
3. ACCURACY AND PRECISION
People make mistake sometimes… because we are HUMAN. Robots are programmed for precise, repetitive motion, and are less likely to make mistakes. In some ways, robots have a built-in quality control system —by reducing the possibility of human error. Precision, accuracy, and repeatability of robots means you can achieve a consistently high-quality finish, with a perfect product every time.
4. ALLEVIATE LABOR SHORTAGES
With highly skilled manual workers becoming more challenging to recruit and more expensive to employ, robots can provide an ideal alternative, especially for repetitive, lower-skill tasks. Once programmed for your process, robots are ready to begin work with none of the costs associated with recruitment or on-going training. Robots can also offer greater flexibility, both in terms of work patterns and the ability to handle different production tasks.
5. IMPROVE SAFETY AND ERGONOMICS
Robots have zero cares about proper lighting, air-quality, or whether the work environment is too hot, and so they are readily available to take over unpleasant or health threatening tasks. With robots, you can increase safety by virtually eliminating accidents and injuries caused by contact with hazardous production machinery or processes.
