Robots Can Be A Solution For Small and Medium-Sized Manufacturers

Recently Industry Week posted an article outlining four ways robots can really help SMMs, small to medium size manufacturers. The article points out that while SMMs make up the lion’s share of manufacturing in the USA, “they are often the least likely to take advantage of the potential ROI from a robotics investment, from reducing bottlenecks and increasing production to addressing industry labor gaps and improving job satisfaction.”

The four opportunities outlined in the article include:

  1. Increased Quality Control
  2. Improved Safety
  3. Reshoring Manufacturing
  4. Industry Advantage

The Industry Week article also mentions MEP, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership. There are regional MEP groups that can help local SMMs by offering technical and other advisors.
