COVID-19 has really changed the way in which businesses in the manufacturing industry work. With the introduction of social distancing, this has made things particularly difficult for those who have a large workforce in order to keep production going.
Ensuring employees maintain a safe distance whilst working within a busy factory has been a real challenge for many operations managers globally. Social distancing machines could be the answer to this entire problem. By automating some of the manual tasks, this means that employees can be reassigned to other areas within the business where human intervention is required.
Social distancing is here to stay
Not only does automation help with the problems associated with the new social distancing measures, they can also increase production levels within your business. With less room for human error, accuracy will also be improved. This means you will be able to speed up your processes, generating a quicker return on investment.
Working alongside humans
Our collaborative robotic solutions can work alongside humans, therefore reducing the need for as many staff on the line. This makes running socially distanced operations a lot easier, keeping productivity high at the same time.
There has been a skills shortage in the UK for quite some time now, and automation is being utilised more and more within manufacturing in order to bridge this gap.
