Is Your Manufacturing Partner Prioritizing Industry 4.0 and Analytics?

Being a tech-savvy manufacturer today is about more than robots and automated processes. Of course, those things are essential, but a truly tech-savvy manufacturing partner also makes a heavy investment in data and analytics.

How it Works

Integrating robotics and automation into manufacturing processes can be challenging, require specialized knowledge, and heavy investments on the front end. However, the return on investment is exponential as robotic operators can increase the efficiency and scalability of programs significantly quicker than human operators. In many cases, a single human operator can oversee production on several automated machines and avoids the tedious and ergonomically-challenging labor associated with operating industrial machinery. This translates to highly-efficient customer programs that are not constricted by labor availability as the customer scales their product.

Any semi-automated or fully-automated production line will also benefit from a data analytics team that processes real-time dashboards and machine monitoring. This type of in-the-moment feedback helps avoid severe quality deviations, find opportunities for increased efficiency, and provides complete transparency into the manufacturing process.

Business Intelligence & Analytics

Our data analytics team drives data literacy, engagement, and analysis throughout the organization allowing business units and the company to make informed, proactive decisions. These insights allow us to communicate intelligently with our customers, make timely capacity investments, monitor equipment and enhance our solutions, driving speed and flexibility for innovative customers.

Robotics & Automation

Our integrated robotics and automation machines are highly efficient, cutting down on human error, minimizing stoppages, and decreasing tool change times. Our robotic operators can run longer, move faster, and reach further than human operators. This fleet of highly efficient robotic operators and automated machines enables us to help customers scale their programs quickly.
