The market for you, as a business in the metalworking industry, has changed significantly in recent years. Your customers have become more demanding than even before. They expect you to supply at competitive prices, but they also demand smaller series and shorter delivery times. At the same time you have to deal with rising labor costs and a lack of CNC operators. You need these operators for skilled labor, not simple repetitive jobs.
The only way to resolve these challenges is to choose the right automation. For small and medium series this should be an automation system that is fast to set up and easy to integrate into existing processes.
