Businesses now have more of an incentive than ever before to invest in robotics and other automated systems. Thanks to continued advances in technology, such systems let buyers achieve higher levels of efficiency and precision than they would if they spent the same sums on purely human capital.
The benefits don’t end there, though. Automation can also generate solutions to persistent safety challenges. In this article, we will describe several types of automated safety solutions and examine their use in real-world manufacturing, machining, and construction environments.
