Industries hire humans to make the manufacturing of products possible. Let’s talk about a single industry as an example, cars? Yep! That’s a huge industry for sure! Know that there aren’t only humans that work there but also robots. So there’s huge machinery that helps in the production of the cars, completely. Why is there a need to use this machinery? Maybe because humans can’t easily lift the weights like engines, car bodies, etc. All they can do is command the machinery to do all these things. Also, they can do the little and compatible tasks but not the bigger ones. But is that all? Are there more benefits to this automation of production?
Let’s take a deeper dive into it.
The Workers Stay Safe
Safety should be the number one priority of everyone. And if an industry is providing work to people, then it should also provide proper protection to them so they could stay medically alright. There would be millions of hazards that could be possible in such a workplace. Let’s say that it’s a chemical industry and the workers have to make different types of chemical formulas. You know how dangerous it is to handle chemicals, right?
Because one bad step and you’re done with it! In such a case, the automation technologies help the workers in their safety. The machinery has to handle the chemicals instead of humans which is why automation is considered to be a safe option for industries.
When robots indulge in the works of humans, the output is significantly better. Why? Because robots can perform given tasks much more accurately than humans. You can take a calculator as an example. It’s a technical machine that can perform calculations a million times faster than a human. Automation is just like that! It only requires efficient power and then it will produce the same results again and again as an output.
Since it can do the task of multiple people, thus helps in cutting down the cost of labor, save energy because of low heating requirements, etc., automation is wallet-friendly.
Low-Wastage of Materials
If we perform the task of making a handmade greeting card at home, you know exactly how much mess we will create. There’s a high chance that we will waste the card. The processes we perform are the least efficient. We have to be perfect to perform the tasks accurately so there’s the least wastage of materials. But ever since automation has taken its step in this world, humans don’t have to be perfect to perform the tasks perfectly saving the materials during the run too.
We made automated machines that work a million times accurately than us and so they help us waste the least amount of material being used in the production of something. I will give you an example of a company, Dawn Printing, that uses this automation technology to produce high-grade product packaging boxes and waste the least material. This efficiency of Dawn Printing makes it one of the renowned packaging brands in the US.
You Can Produce A Lot More
When it comes to producing something, a human can be very fast. But is a human as fast as a machine? I bet not! Automation can make things work much faster than we can think. Workers may be able to produce a single car per day, but did you know that Toyota made 13,400 cars in a single day in 2014? All this with the help of automation. Now this is an unbelievable number, isn’t it? This is how crazy you can get with automation when it comes to producing more and more products.
If You Use Automation, You Will Be More Competitive
When you step into an industry, you’re actually becoming a rival of many of your competitors. They will try to keep you on the level you’re on and not let you succeed. All they will do is improve their business to make sure that you don’t come up to their competition. Let’s say that they produce 10,000 products in a day accurately using automation, how can you expect your business to compete with their’s when you can’t even produce more than 500 in a day?
But if you boost your production with the help of automation, you can come up to 10,000 and be able to compete with them in terms of production. Or, you can actually beat them if you produce even more. Of course, it requires investment because automation installation isn’t cheap. But it IS very helpful in business.
There’s No More Need to Outsource
Outsourcing can be very exhausting because you have to be dependant on the other party from where you’re outsourcing something. For example, if you’re outsourcing the printing part of packaging while you’re producing the packaging all by yourself, then you have to be dependant on the printing resource. This will not only disturb you mentally but also cost you a lot. But if you only have an automation technology that can do the printing for you, then you’ll be blessed!
It will be your own automation cell that you can use to print your packaging as well so there’s no more need for outsourcing something because you have everything right under your own roof.
Your Business Will Be Highly Available
It’s an obvious benefit of automation if you have it included in your business. Where there’s automation, there’s a lot of productivity and accuracy and so there will be a lot of demand for it. Let’s say that you produce makeup containers. When other businesses will know that they can easily get these makeup containers from you and they know that no matter what happens, there will always be availability, then they will only choose you for them. Automation will boost your availability and this, induce more sales.
Humans can’t do things as precisely and fast as machines can. This is why automation has started to take over the world so the world becomes much more efficient in multiple fields. Every industry these days have some automation cells installed due to which the world is going so efficiently towards success in terms of technology.
In business, there are tens of ways automation helps. If you wish to make your business succeed in your specific industry, then add automation cells or enhance them so you could have multiple times more chances of success in this world.
