Robots and automation may seem like an expensive idea for many business owners, but automation be more within reach than previously thought and can produce excellent return on investment.
Whether painting a factory or removing waste in a facility’s process, the ROI for automation can often be measured in months.
“Automation in and of itself is really designed to recognize efficiency gains. The common places we talk to customers about where to look for those gains are in reducing waste, improving quality, replacing manual labor – that can be a costly area for the manufacturing process – improving throughput speed, reducing downtime, and making equipment more maintainable,” said Michael Gurney, President and CEO of Concept Systems. “Those are things automation can really help with and areas automation has been helping with for years.”
While the best place to invest in automation may not be immediately obvious to customers used to doing things a certain way, Concept Sales and Marketing Director Ryan Wasmund said the seasoned crew Concept boasts can find the right inefficiencies quickly and guide customers through the entire process.
“Five hundred years of experience across our engineering just really speaks to what we’ve been able to do over the last 20 years. We have a slew of engineers that can go after different projects, from controls to robotics, our mechanical design group, and our service team,” Wasmund said. “We can help our customers from start to finish. That really is what the benefit of having that much experience gives our customers.”
Concept typically will walk the floor and search for the categories Gurney mentioned where automation can come alongside current operations, make the most sense and make sure customers are getting a strong return on their investment.
