The importance of automation: optimize the production time


The term automation defines the introduction in a manufacturing company of technical tools and processes aimed at reducing or even eliminating human operations. The incorporation of automatic equipment produces several advantages, such as time saving, costs reduction and better quality outputs, thus achieving customers' satisfaction.

The most relevant benefit of automation is the reduction of workload for the operators, but it proves also beneficial in terms of energy and materials savings.  Automation can therefore lead to production process improvement, enhancing accuracy, precision, productivity, robustness, consistency of outputs and quality.

Automation can be implemented through different tools, such as mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic devices and computers, usually used together.
