Letting smart machines work harder for you


Not more than a decade ago, intelligent industrial automation, such as collaborative robots and smart manufacturing equipment, was inaccessible to most corporations. Today quality, efficiency, and low production costs are vital to contract manufacturers and OEMs alike. Recent market research shows that automation is driving the MedTech industry. In fact, a recent MedTech Intelligence article showed that medical device manufacturers that had adopted automation in their production lines saw a 40-60% decrease in processing costs. This is why automation has become a much sought-after capability for medical device manufacturers. Today, affordable and flexible automation is accelerating the rate at which manufacturers can strategically automate production, with the extent of automation directly impacting the bottom line in a variety of ways—from one-off and per-item costs to quality, repeatability, and customer satisfaction. Strategic automation provides the best way to ensure success.

The Automation Challenge?

Once a contract manufacturer (CM) determines how much of its facility needs to be automated, other challenges arise, such as regular upgrades, new training and specialized skills required to handle the automated machinery, and variations in production volumes. A CM that can handle these challenges and offer flexibility in terms of production volume is close to priceless to customers (OEMs).
