Automation is an effective way to enhance both flexibility and productivity in manufacturing.

Customers are increasingly demanding flexibility in their solutions, Christian Muller, President of Sales in the Americas for Grob explained. They no longer want to spend money on parts or technologies that are rigid.

During his discussion with IMTSTV, Muller noted that many of the lessons Grob has learned can be applied to both high and low volume production environments. A global player in the manufacturing technology industry, Grob supplies metal cutting machines, assembly lines and universal machines. Much of the technology they produce is integrated with automation.

Muller highlighted that Grob’s success is largely attributable to the company’s commitment to providing customized solutions. This includes creating unique automated solutions.

Customers are increasingly demanding flexibility in their solutions, Muller explained. They no longer want to spend money on parts or technologies that are rigid.

The demand for increased flexibility is directly tied to the constant push to improve productivity. In the global marketplace, companies have to look for ways to improve productivity to remain competitive, Muller said. 

Introducing automation is an effective way to increase productivity and output by reducing the influence of human beings on production volume, Muller noted. He explained that automation solutions can provide companies with reliable and constant production outputs.

For more information about exciting developments in automation, plan to attend the [MC]2 Conference on April 19-21, 2016, in Dallas, Texas.
