Automation

Letting smart machines work harder for you

About
Automation

As of 2010, 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. Market research shows that automation is driving the MedTech industry. According to MedTech Intelligence, medical device manufacturers that adopted automation in their production lines saw a 40-60% decrease in processing costs. Automation has thus 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 terms of one-off and per-item costs, quality, repeatability, and customer satisfaction. Strategic automation is the best means for ensuring 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 (OEM) is close to priceless to customers.
