  • Overcoming the challenges of automation in manufacturing

    In the last three blogs, we have tried to understand automation in manufacturing and warehousing as well as its types and benefits. But, just as every coin has two sides, automation poses certain challenges. Let’s talk about those now. It is predicted that 20 million jobs will be displaced due to automation in manufacturing by 2030. This figure suggests that around 46% of jobs will be lost by 2030. Each year there is a staggering 10% increase in automation. Lately, automation in the manufacturing sector has picked up as it reduces labor costs, increases production speed, and improves accuracy. But specific challenges still pose a threat to its guilt-free and full-scale adoption. What are the challenges…

  • A Brief on Warehouse Automation

    Continuing our series on automation, we have now brought up the topic of Warehouse Automation. Warehouse automation is a significant contributor to the growth and economy of a country. There are approximately 167,610 warehouses worldwide, with more than 80% lacking automation. The warehouse automation industry is going to boom under Industry 4.0. Robotics, logistics, and other warehouse automation technologies are anticipated to reach a global value of over $22.4 billion. The need for warehouse automation is immense as the majority of operating budgets for warehouse facilities are composed of roughly 65% labor costs! Warehouse automation also brings safety to the environment. The number of forklift-related accidents alone totals nearly 100,000…

  • Manufacturing Automation – The New Frontier

    Welcome back to a new series of blogs from Rucha Yantra. This time, we are talking about a new albeit already-established trend in manufacturing – Manufacturing Automation. A trend that Rucha Yantra is participating in and contributing to a lot as well. Let’s begin! Manufacturing automation refers to equipment and software that automates production systems or processes. Automation serves broadly two purposes – increasing production capacity or reducing costs, often both. Automation in manufacturing has come a long way – from using basic hydraulic and pneumatic systems to today’s modern robots. Most notably, industrial automation enhances and transforms those activities that were previously performed manually. One pioneer type of automation…
