It is the most pressing question of our time. It seems that there is a new technology breakthrough every minute of every day; so keeping up is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity.
As populations grow and the diverse world economy creates new consumers everyday, manufactures are facing challenges unseen since the Industrial Revolution.
More consumers, means the world needs to produce goods faster and more cost effectively. No use in mastering modern manufacturing if you can’t make a profit. This is where automation plays a giant role. While some might say it has removed the human element from manufacturing this just is not so. It has in fact saved countless industries from complete collapse and it takes highly skilled human workers to run properly. This is where we are running into some trouble. Some studies claim that 40% of today’s automation professionals will leave the workforce in the next five years. This exodus unfortunately coincides with a growing skill gap, simply put, not enough new workers are receiving the proper training to operate the manufacturing machines of the present and future.
At Nex Flow, our entire company is built around the automation revolution. From our air knives and vortex tubes to our amplifiers and nozzles, we are always trying to find ways to streamline the manufacturing process through automation for a wide variety of industries. Each day we bring the benefits of automation to manufactures all over the world, but we also know that without a properly trained workforce, even our innovative tools may not be enough to prepare manufactures for the future.
The moral of the story is this, the future is here and combining Nex Flow’s cutting-edge automation equipment, with highly skilled workers is the only way not to get left behind.
