Much has changed since the industrial revolution introduced the concept of mass production to the world. The invention of the steam engine by James Watt in 1765 replaced water, animal, and human power with a low-cost form of reliable energy.
By 1903 Henry Ford had successfully mastered the science of churning out automobiles on an assembly line. Most of the work was performed by humans, but automation was just around the corner. The 20th century saw assembly line workers largely replaced by automation, machines were able to do the work faster and more efficiently, and yearly production of goods ramped up to numbers never imagined possible just a few decades before.
Now the age of automation is here in full force, complex electronic tools and robotic devices are able to produce goods at lightning speeds. There is still the need for human input, of course, technicians to make sure the machines are working properly, and scientists and engineers to continue introducing new innovations. Gazing into the windows of a modern factory you will still see people coming and going, although special care must be taken before they enter the production area.
Role OF ID Badges in Factory Floor
ID badges must be scanned and clearances met to make sure only qualified and authorized personnel are able to enter the sometimes dangerous realm of the automated factory floor, which is where having Complete Entrance Solutions in place becomes a critical aspect of both safety and security.
Trends in Industry
More and more companies are turning to electronic automation to produce their products fast enough to fulfil high demands. If you are a business owner seeking to construct a new factory, there has never been a better time than now to implement all the latest technologies, an investment that will provide incredible returns as your product practically flies off the automated assembly line, each individual component crafted with machine precision. If this sounds good to you, let’s get started creating your ultra-modern factory.
Technology Behind IT
In the past, your technicians would have needed to draw up time-consuming blueprints of the proposed structure and systems. These were only in two dimensions of course, and one had to use a bit of imagination to envision the final outcome. The cumbersome physical blueprint has now been replaced by highly advanced industrial and architectural 3D modeling, allowing you to practically walk through the virtual halls of your future factory, with every tool and component represented before your very eyes in digital form. This process makes it easy to quickly shift things around, and try out different configurations without having to create a new blueprint from scratch. You can model your set-up in perfect detail in advance before any ground is broken, an incredibly powerful tool for bringing manufacturing to new heights here in the 21st century.
Australia is at the forefront of industrial nations implementing the latest technology in modern manufacturing, we have embraced the future, and are prospering from forward-thinking innovation right here in the present! Henry Ford would certainly approve.
