Knowing when to automate processes can be a tricky prospect. When looking at replacing a highly-skilled, yet difficult to fill human operation like production welding with robotic systems, the question can become even murkier.
At Midwest Engineered Systems, we’ve developed and installed many automated welding systems over our three decades of operation. While every product is different and every market sector has its own requirements, we’ve seen common areas that predict what makes a good candidate for automation and what should stay in the hands of skilled workers for right now.
We’ve put together some of the key questions that help a production manager or manufacturing engineer decide if their process can get the most out of moving to robotic processes.
