If we did the same thing for robotic welding machines at our modern automobile factories we would surely have enough heat energy spinning those small wheels to power up all the lights in the factory. Wouldn’t it be great to know that even if the power went off, the grid went down, or there was any sort of power failure that the factory could keep running because it kept reusing at least most of its energy? Remember in the manufacturing process it’s all about efficiency, and that’s why I came up with a strategy. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
The robotic addition can be of great benefit to companies that requires applying custom product labels in large quantity in product lines. This addition will reduce all the man hours wasted by employees’ hand applying labels at slow speed than an applicator can apply them. This allows employers to use their staff for more important tasks and offers efficient production speed.
In addition to cost efficiency, high-tech training for certain manufacturing jobs would be very scarce to come by. The automated, hyper-efficient shop floors of modern manufacturing won’t give Trump much room to deliver on his promises to bring back millions of jobs for his blue-collar supporters. Instead of companies investing in robots to give them better returns in the future, they would have to invest in training programs to help accommodate workers that need the training for more complex jobs. Specifically, for more digitalized companies, the margin for investing in training compared to that of robotic costs would be very high, to the point where it wouldn’t even make much sense to invest in job-specific training.
Automation improves the level of production and competence of certain industries. It is in this regard that industrial robotic systems have been conceptualized. It is true that this system renders much help to operators. The predicament however lies upon the price that goes with it. In industries where modernization has not yet been introduced, learning how to operate the system adds to the burden.
The Washington Post reported that over the last 10 years the United States lost more than a quarter of its manufacturing jobs. Although we are all aware it’s cheaper to manufacture products overseas, Washington Post reporter Peter Whoriskey explains that Asia is producing an ever-increasing workforce armed with engineering doctorates. China and other Asian countries are also flowing millions of dollars into high tech research in order to compete with the tech industry in the United States. For example, over the last 10 years China doubled the number of engineering doctorates awarded.
