• 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…

  • Ways Cloud Computing Can Help Manufacturers

    Hello readers, hope you are doing great! Today, we are delving into how Cloud Computing can benefit manufacturers. Manufacturers continually search for new ways to gain an edge over their competitors by using their resources better. Cloud computing, which allows users to store, access, and use information from centralized servers instead of local storage devices, might be the answer manufacturers have been looking for to improve factory efficiency and cut costs in the long run. Let’s check out how! Improve visibility By storing data in the cloud, manufacturers can improve their visibility into operations and make better decisions. Cloud based data can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, giving…

  • 5 Major Advantages of Cloud Computing

Where did it come from? How has it changed the lives of billions of people around the world? Let’s take a closer look at these questions while also exploring what experts predict for the future of cloud computing, so you can decide if it’s worth your time and effort to dive into this fascinating world on your own. What Is Cloud…

  • Types of Industrial Automation Systems

    Welcome back to another piece regarding Industrial Automation Systems. In this blog, we shall talk about the various types of systems and their advantages for the manufacturers. Let’s begin! Ever since the surge of the industrial revolution, there has been a continuous need for automation and the complete transformation of quality-infused final products. Industrial automation calls for reducing human labor and better handling the production process through machines like a drill, conveyor belt, motors, etc. Many industrial experts in the past decade have proposed the need for high volume and high-quality products which are highly reliable and less obsolete. Large production units and conglomerates have realized that catering to such…

  • The Many Advantages of Embracing Industrial Automation

    Hey there, hope you liked our last piece that introduced the world of Industrial Automation. Having seen how it evolved and why we need it, let’s now get to know the various advantages it brings to the table. Automation is the way of the future, where there is a healthy collaboration between robots, artificial intelligence, and uniquely human skills. And leading firms around the globe are no stranger to the true potential of industrial automation. The global industrial automation market is forecasted to reach USD 395.09 billion by 2029, and irrespective of the industry, automation is already emerging as a critical component for scalable growth. Contrary to popular belief, industrial…

  • What is Industrial Automation, and Where is it Taking Us?

    Welcome back to another series of interesting information and insights into modern technologies. This time around, we shall be taking up the topic of Industrial Automation. We hope you find it interesting. Let’s begin! Automation is rapidly transforming how we think about, operate, and utilize technology across industries for various processes. Today, industrial automation is a reality that goes beyond mechanization – it involves the active use of control devices like PCs, PLCs, and PACs to successfully navigate industrial processes. Though it is broad in scope and purpose, industrial automation can be defined precisely. Simply put, it refers to the integration of computerized machinery, information technologies, and control systems into…

  • The many benefits of warehouse robotics

    Welcome back! As we wrap up the series on warehouse robotics, where we understand the term and the different types of warehouse robots in the previous two blogs, today, we shall list down the many benefits of putting robots to use in warehouses. Let’s begin. Industrial productivity has come a long way since the 18th century. Not only have industries revamped themselves in terms of the total output, but the resources expended to produce a single unit of any finished product have also dramatically come down. Novel technological innovations have helped companies achieve both of these objectives simultaneously. Robotics is one such technology. Unerring accuracy, uninterrupted efficiency, and top-notch productivity…
