Factory Automation

Factory Automation

The world of automation combines aspects of machine design with the integration of a wide range of technologies including sensor, robotics, process measurement and process control systems, LAN and wireless communication systems, and with aspects of sw communication.
Automation, if well planned, addresses and solves complex problems linked to cost optimization and the performance of production processes, and supports vital aspects of the Company such as health, safety and sustainability.
The issues around integrating these technologies are complex and sometimes pose a real puzzle.
