The Quad Cities Manufacturing Innovation Hub has identified three key opportunity areas in robotics and automation for area manufacturers:
- Opportunity #1: Production efficiencies and cost savings. Most manufacturers experience ROI in 12 to 18 months after adding robotic automation.
- Opportunity #2: Increased onsite safety. Robots are designed with built-in safety functionality and are not prone to the same human errors.
- Opportunity #3: Employee development. Employees can develop their careers in new ways, stepping out of low skill-level tasks to explore other fields that benefit the company.
