In the era of Industry 4.0, the use of new technologies such as digitalisation, big data, robotics and 3D printing, has become the ‘new normal’, an essential element needed to survive in a highly competitive market. The ultimate objective is to transform manufacturing facilities into units consisting of fully automated manufacturing (FAM) cells. In such smart production plants, robots are responsible for the physical work, while employees are given a chance to use their competencies to solve more complex tasks.
We can’t forget that modern technology allows for the production process to be more environmentally friendly. Thanks to self-learning robots, manufacturers are able to flexibly identify and avoid delivery and maintenance problems in advance as well as minimise the amount of material waste
