Robotics Make Sense for Manufacturing

Robots allow businesses to remain competitive without off-shoring. High Speed robots are available for applications that were previously done manually and cheaper off-shore.
Example: the FANUC M-1iA Robot with iRVision is ideal for high speed, highly repetitive, pick, place, or assembly operations.
In a globalized economy, using robots is one of the best ways for North American manufacturing jobs to live, thrive, and survive. This is because robots allow companies to grow while cutting costs.

“Save Your Factory” urges North American manufacturing companies to recognize automation, robotics and efficiency measures such as lean manufacturing as more cost-effective and profitable alternatives to off shoring.  It implores corporations to examine all the factors associated with manufacturing success – not just the initial short-term investments.


Business leaders and economists credit the re-shoring trend to several factors:

  • Rising labor costs in China.
  • Increasing costs to ship products to North America.
  • The desire to more directly control the manufacturing process and the quality of the products.

More and more, articles in the news claim that manufacturing may be moving back to North America.
