Automation refers to the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, aircraft and other operations with minimal or reduced human intervention. Perhaps the biggest benefit of automation is that it saves labor costs. However, automation also saves energy and materials and improves quality, accuracy and precision. Automation is achieved through a number of different means such as mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and computers. Many automation systems utilize a combination of some or all of these processes. Industrial automation refers to when these types of procedures are used in a work place environment, typically in the manufacturing industry. Benefits of industrial automation systems include:

  • Increased efficiency
  • Increased productivity
  • Less man power
  • Early fault detection and repair
  • Remote operations
  • Data for better results
  • Safer operations

Many industry experts believe that the future of industry requires an increased need for manufacturing processes to implement highly mobile automated systems. Virtually every industry has benefited from automation and some have even been greatly transformed by it.  Industrial automation devices come in various shapes, sizes and forms and a number of them can be used in large industrial outfits to perform a variety of different manufacturing tasks. All of these automated systems are simply robots with a mechanical body that is controlled by a computer. The motions of these industrial robots are highly sensitive through various degrees of movements. By using computers, they can even be made to understand complex things such as heat and pressure.

Today, industrial automation is used in many more places than simple manufacturing processes. After all, a single industrial robot can perform the work of fifty people in a single day. Companies can even keep industrial robots operating throughout the night and on weekends and holidays. This is obviously an extremely large advantage of using industrial automation. Industrial robots also tend to be more precise than humans.
