Ten Reasons To Automate

10. Increase Flexibility

           Automated Cells & Equipmentís solutions resolve not only your current problems, but allow you to adapt to new solutions.  Robots are flexible and can easily be redeployed in new applications.  It is this ability to adapt that can give you the edge over your competition (and reduce headaches!).

9. Increase Productivity and Product Yield

            Simply put, automation allows you to do more with less.  Well-designed automation has the ability to take up less floor space and use less resources than other processes or inefficient machinery. 

8. Stay Ahead of the Competition

            Your competition is automating, why shouldnít you?  Besides gaining an advantage on those who have not already made the decision to automate, it is vital to your success that you keep up with the ones who already have.  Contact an ACE representative to see how you can improve where you stand against the competition.

7. More Affordable Than You Might Think

            As technology continues to become less expensive, so too does automation.  Furthermore, (despite popular belief) banks are lending to businesses more than ever.  Over the past year, bank lending to businesses has increased to just under $100 billion.

6. High Return on Investment

            With robots being so affordable, it takes a surprisingly short time for them to pay for themselves, sometimes even less than a year.

5. Win Market Share

            Your customers (and potential customers) donít care how it gets done.  Simply put, the order goes to the company who produces the greatest yield with the highest quality at the lowest cost.  Automation provides all of that with just one investment.

4. Make Your Employees Safer

            Automation is designed to do the repetitive, boring, and dangerous jobs previously done solely by human operators.  Automation allows an operator to load a machine and let it do the dangerous work while he or she does another task.  Having automation perform jobs like these greatly reduces compensation claims caused by human operators growing fatigued and distracted from doing the same thing over and over.

3. Cost Reduction

            Letís face itóthe one thing on every managerís mind is the bottom line.  And nothing cuts into the bottom line quite like the enormity of operating costs.  Automation ultimately results in lowering those costs.  Machines running at maximum efficiency means lower building, energy, and labor expenses. 

2. Increase Quality and Consistency

            One way automation reduces your costs is through minimizing waste via unusable or defective products.  Automation makes processes highly standardized and cuts the variability that comes with human-oriented tasks.  Using inspection tools such as FANUCís iRVision, you can easily determine a defected part versus an acceptable part.

1. Become Sustainable

            At the end of the day, automation uses far less energy than previous processes.  First, by minimizing defects, the machine does not have to produce more parts than necessary to compensate for what must be thrown away.  Beyond reducing waste, the increased throughput also allows the machine to operate for less time.  Becoming sustainable positions your company for the future, getting you one step ahead of the competition and headed for success.
