Industrial Automation Is Changing the Face of the Industries

IT Biz Today Staff

Automation is making our daily chores easy by saving us time and efforts. Today, you can automate the process of paying your bills and avoid missing the due date, schedule your emails and social media posts, and much more. Automation requires you to use a bunch of tools to help you avoid performing such mundane tasks manually. Its importance for business and industrial sectors is rising with time. For instance, if we consider tough and complicated industrial activities, we can reduce the complexity by introducing factory robots, automation line machines, industrial motion control, etc. Below, we will discuss how industrial automation is changing various sectors:

1. High Productivity

Hiring hundreds of workers for manufacturing units is not a big deal for huge industries. The management can ask those employees to work around the clock and increase the production to its maximum. Still, it will not be possible for the plant to keep manufacturing all the time because humans need rest. Vacations, sickness, tiredness, errors, etc. are some of the issues that’ll keep hurting the production. So with human labor, industries cannot reach their 100% production uptime.

On the other hand, industrial automation can keep the machines running around the clock, resulting in a dramatic increase in productivity. For instance, the Internet of Things gives production units predictive maintenance capability so companies can reduce operational downtime by reducing the errors and solving the problems in real-time.

2. High Quality

Automated devices, unlike humans, do not get tired or feel sick and need holidays. They do not contain emotions and feelings, preventing distraction, delay, and downtime. Therefore, they reduce numerous types of errors to elevate quality and efficiency of the working process. With industrial automation, you can enhance your product’s quality and reduce the risk of errors.  

3. High Flexibility

Humans take a lot of time in learning new things. Operators have to take hours of training sessions when there is a new task in the assembly line. All these efforts are time-consuming, but the results are slow and uncertain. However, manufacturing robots only require new methods and processes integrated onto the processor chips. In other words, you can use software technology to equip your production units and industrial machines with new methods of manufacturing.

4. High Information Accuracy

Managing the production and making the right decisions require relevant data. Manually managing and collecting data can be costly. Furthermore, there are numerous risks of human errors in the process of collecting relevant data. Informed decisions require reliable and verified data. Industrial automation enables you to collect data automatically and in real-time. With the help of IoT sensors and other devices, you can attain accurate and recent data and make well-informed decisions about your production, manufacturing, supply chain, etc.


In addition to the benefits stated above, industrial automation is a safe and affordable solution to bring accuracy and relevancy to the production lines. While the initial cost of automating the production plant, facility, or factory can be high, you will save a massive amount in the long run. Furthermore, this technology will help you meet the market demand and increase productivity.
