A recent Gartner survey showed 57% of manufacturing leaders feel their organization lacks skilled workers to support smart manufacturing digitization plans. Most agreed a long-term strategy is necessary to develop the connected factory worker.
Motion Controls Robotics (MCRI) is hosting a monthly, summer webcast series in 2021. MCRI provides automation solutions for customers by designing and building turn-key end of line applications, fulfillment solutions, and general material handling automation.
Low demand scenarios necessitate a different strategy: tools that can produce more pieces per edge while providing process security. Here, the goal should be fewer production interruptions and the capability to run unmanned production.
One of the most interesting features of this update to the Robotics program is the added module on autonomous robots. Autonomous robots are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the industry, with an increasing number of commercial and industrial applications.
With a clear shift towards more digitally enabled roles and a growing need for more automation and/or robotics across all industries, this requires more skilled people within these environments.
There is no doubt that the robotics industry will keep developing in the upcoming years. But the problem is that this industry is already experiencing serious labor shortages and a lack of talent.
