Also, repetitive and physical tasks often result in workers’ compensation claims for injuries to an employee’s arms, shoulders, and neck. Not only will automating decreases the risk of injury to employees but it also frees them up to do more value-added tasks that have a positive effect on your bottom line. It’s a win/win!
Today, manufacturers are also impacted by responsible social distancing rules, which limit the number of employees on the floor and on each shift. Yet, machine tending is one of the easiest and least expensive places to start incorporating automation into your production processes. Automating these tasks helps eliminate lost time between machining cycles and improve consistency and volume on 2nd & 3rd shifts.
