Most of the manufacturing conducted in the U.S. is high tech manufacturing, such as chemical, semiconductor, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, among others. To understand the nature of the manufacturing processes requires background information. That’s where a degree in engineering becomes so critical. Spending the time earning an engineering degree is worth it: many engineering jobs in this sector start around $50,000 and rise up to over $100,000.
Job-specific training brings value to companies but can be very complicated when it comes to making sure every worker has had the best training possible to effectively produce the best products for customers. Especially in the manufacturing industry, efficiency is key and if products are not consistent with quality, they will be worse off in the economy.
Why Robots? You need to understand that no matter how good of training an employee gets or how tough the recruitment is people, in general, can hardly ever keep up one efficiency level; it either gets very good or very bad. But with machines you get only efficiency level. It works with whatever programs you write on it. The basic being for it to perform small, menial and repetitive tasks. When you do that you can use your employees for more strategic tasks. This integration would be a way to revolutionize your modus operandi so you may get the edge in the business world. Because business is fast moving and evolving market and you need to keep up or you may leave behind.
You see, there was an interesting article in Business Insider Tech News titled ”Foreign robotics companies find success in China,” written by Jonathan Camhi published on September 22, 2015 which stated:
ABB’s small IRB 120 multipurpose industrial robot weighs 25kg and can handle a payload of 3kg (4kg for vertical wrist) with a reach of 580mm. It is a cost-effective and reliable choice for generating high production outputs in return for low investment. A white finish Clean Room ISO 5 (Class 100) version, certified by IPA, is available.
