consumer goods Automation expertise


Industrial automation is a broad term that encompasses everything from digital manufacturing to simple control systems for equipment and processes. In the engineering and industrial industries, it comprises the use of technology and control systems to replace human mental and physical work. Systems and products that combine electronics, hydraulics, mechanical, and electrical components automate tasks that were previously performed by people.
