Global Industrial Automation
The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines automation as “the technique of making an apparatus, a process, or a system operate automatically.” Virtually all industries are now using some or the other sort of automation processes in order to increase the overall output and also reduce labor costs. Industrial automation, meanwhile, makes use of robotic devices to complete manufacturing tasks. Industrial automation has a very important role to play in the manufacturing industry. Some of the advantages of industrial automation include stricter quality control, higher waste reduction, and increased integration with business systems, amongst others. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of industrial automation remains the high initial costs to get the process set up along with an increased cost for maintenance of the equipment.
In recent years, China has emerged as a major force in the industrial automation industry, with most automation companies having direct exposure to the Chinese markets. Most automation companies now have a major presence in China. For example, according to Siemens, China accounts for more than almost 50% of all its CPU/PLC units sold worldwide.
