An introduction to the concept of industrial automation, its advantages and different types of industrial automation used in manufacturing processes.
What is Industrial Automation?
Industrial automation is the use of certain technologies and automatic control devices to reduce human intervention in mechanical, quality control and material handling processes. Reduced human intervention also means better performance than manual control. Industrial automation companies automate various processes through the use of mechanized equipment and logical programming commands. Such equipment include programmable logic controllers, computers, input-output modules, etc
