Manufacturing & Robotics OVERVIEW

       The manufacturing and robotics sectors have become tightly intertwined in recent years, thanks to the rapidly growing importance of factory automation.
     On factory floors ranging from relatively small machine shops to giant automobile plants and electronics factories, computer-driven equipment plays a vital role in manufacturing worldwide.
     The sophistication of the equipment ranges from simple computer-aided machinery that cuts fabric prior to it being sewn into final garments, to robots that make highly accurate and sophisticated welds in car factories, to robots that can rapidly assemble tiny electronics components and solder them in place with blazing speed and great accuracy.
     The ever growing drive for efficiency and quality, both at the factory and in the supply chain, will make automation technologies more and more vital.
     Robotics and automation assist manufacturing in a wide variety of ways, far beyond final assembly.
     Robots can control the warehouse, delivering parts to the factory floor on an as-needed basis.
     Computers and sophisticated software help to design, model and test products prior to their actual manufacture, and then upload final instructions to computer-driven factory equipment.
     The design of components and sub-assemblies are, to a dominant degree, conducted through computer-aided design tools (often called CAD-CAM) that can be tightly coordinated with the factory floor.
     Global Manufacturing:  The worldwide manufacturing sector is estimated by Plunkett Research at $12.5 trillion (in terms of value added) for 2016.
