Top Industrial Automation Companies in the World

Dec 8, 2017

Automation arrived in the industrial age as a boon to manufacturing industries as they could mass-produce their products by incurring lower costs and ensuring high-quality. Today, industrial automation is not just limited to manufacturing operations, and has expanded its application area across the logistics and supply chain function of an organization. Supply chain professionals are more reliant on enterprise process robots, which can automate an entire business process such as supply chain. For instance, robotics solutions can detect that a warehouse is full due to the lack of inventory movement and automatically alerts procurement teams to adjust to a new storage location. The notion that robots are stationery, blind, and can only perform repetitive tasks are rapidly disappearing due to new-age intelligent robots which are lighter, flexible, and can learn on their own to perform new tasks. So who are the companies behind such game-changing innovations that are contributing to the modern-day industrial revolution?
