Role of automation systems

Until now, automation systems and their roles have become pivotal in the country’s overall development as well as in the growth of individual businesses. The integration of technology into factory production lines and various operational aspects has helped establish closed, secure, and high-quality processes.

Automation, or the automatic control system, plays an immensely significant role, especially in the manufacturing industry. Below are some of the typical roles that automation has been and is playing a massive part in within the manufacturing sector.

Large manufacturing plants such as automobile, aircraft, and truck production, among other industries, can pose significant health risks if exposed to for prolonged periods. Hazards include steel production, cement manufacturing, fertilizer production, plastic and glass material manufacturing, etc. Additionally, certain production lines, such as those in the food and beverage industry, involving beverages, canned goods, bottled products, fruit-based items, and canned foods, require enclosed and safe hygienic processes. All these processes prioritize both quality and quantity in their operations and limit human contact within the production chain to ensure closed-loop operations.

– During manual production processes, we often rely on the health and condition of each worker involved, necessitating work shifts to ensure employees have adequate rest time and stable mental states for work. However, by implementing automation techniques into the production line, we can ensure the continuous flow and consistent quality of products. This helps meet high work intensities without depending on human factors.

– Control systems and automation in manufacturing also contribute to cost efficiency. Some low-value items such as nails, light bulbs, locks, scissors, small automated component accessories, etc., cannot be mass-produced through manual methods while maintaining the lowest possible production costs. Therefore, automated systems are developed to optimize and enhance both productivity and the quality of these products.

– Automation systems help maximize a company’s profits to the fullest extent possible. In the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, minimizing contact among workers is crucial to reduce the spread of the virus. It’s also essential to limit human exposure to hazardous work environments and ensure improved working conditions to enhance employee well-being.
