Machine learning, artificial intelligence and data analytics are widely discussed and viewed as amazingly impactful to the future of human-kind.  Manufacturing has been right in step with this interest and progress, as these capabilities are now being used to assess equipment efficiency, predict reliability and plan preventative maintenance and evaluate potential quality variations prior raw material hitting the production floor.

Automation, robotics and cobots are quickly becoming a part of popular culture, but they have long existed in production environments.  A focus on efficiency as well as extending and enhancing the capacity, capabilities and safety of the human workforce has driven adoption.

Companies focused on the art and science of advanced manufacturing are rapidly becoming experts in these areas.  To learn more, contact Fusion!
