Automation Is No Longer Optional — It’s Inevitable

Author: Laura AmRhein | Date: November 30, 2020

This year has been unusual, to say the least. From lock-downs to masks, toilet paper shortages to daily temperature checks, a lot has been asked of us as individuals, business owners, and workers.

Automation has been a growing fixture in manufacturing environments for years, increasing production efficiency and supporting safe environments for workers. Virtually every manufacturing company has a current process that can be improved through automation.

This article, recently posted to, Automation Is No Longer Optional — It’s Inevitable, caught our attention for both reinforcing what we are saying to, and seeing from, our customers, and its insight into some of where “automation” will emerge in the near future.

We’ll leave you to read through the article in your own time, but before we do, here are some of the key considerations we discuss with our customers before we start designing an automated solution for them:

  • Start Small – Identifying and automating repetitive tasks are a great place to start. 
  • If variable data collection is a requirement, Automate It!
  • The best way to set an automation project up for success?  Include the individuals who will be using it in the design, build, install and training!

Orka Automation specializes in automating processes for Material Movement, Processing and Assembly, and Automated Inspection.  We can’t get your organization to George Jetson level, but we can help identify opportunities for automation that make you more efficient and supplement and support your workforce.
