Feb. 22, 2014 - PRLog -- Workplace automation can transform business by reducing errors, increasing efficiency, and cutting costs.  Scott Stone, E-business manager for Cisco-Eagle, Inc., discussed how automation is becoming increasingly affordable to operations of all sizes and scope in the current Seegrid blog. “While cost of manual labor has dramatically increased in recent years, automation equipment, including robotics, conveyors, palletizers, has seen a relative decrease in costs, or at very worst has held steady when the cost of everything else from land to energy to labor has increased,” explained Stone.

Stone described how robotics and automation increase safety and enhance operational efficiency with 3 best practices for safety:

Safety and ergonomics equipment such as safety gates, motion sensors, and guard rails help make automation equipment safer and more productive.

Automation technology such as robotics, carousels, palletizers, and sortation systems can make warehouse operations safer by automating potentially unsafe tasks that would otherwise be handled by employees.

While safety automation (including everything from steel guard rails or emergency stop switches to motion sensors and lights) can prevent or respond to hazards in a way employees cannot, it’s important to avoid over-reliance on these innovations by constantly reinforcing safety training.

Stone noted, “As advanced technologies continue to propel distribution and manufacturing operations forward and contribute to the re-shoring of many of these types of operations, it is more important than ever to take advantage of industrial automation to ensure operations run at peak performance. But that does not mean businesses need to sacrifice safety in the process.”

Scott Stone is the E-business manager for Cisco-Eagle, Inc, a provider of integrated material handling and storage systems for industrial operations. Stone has over 23 years of experience in industrial operations and marketing.  Cisco-Eagle is a Seegrid Sales Partner.
