New robots are safer, cheaper, and easier to use. Servo motors continue to make these technological advancements possible, but exciting innovations in the field are expected to be unveiled at this year’s trade shows.
Modern industrial automation increases quality as well as production. Historically, increased production and decreased costs were the main effects of automation, but other benefits are now recognized. Automation can be better for the environment and safer for human workers, too.
There is some speculation that increases in the minimum wage might make automation more appealing in industries that haven’t yet been willing to invest in automation, but this is still a matter of speculation and doesn’t seem to be driving sales at this point.
