KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Aug. 18, 2021 - PRLog -- elliTek, Inc. announced today that they have signed a systems integrator partner agreement with Yaskawa America, Inc., Motoman Robotics Div. (Yaskawa Motoman).

Labor shortages happening today are different than in the past.  During previous labor shortages, it was difficult to find qualified employees.  Today, we are facing an exit of the baby boomer generation that is expected to continue through 2030.  Additionally, the working-age population of noncollege graduates is shrinking while the demand for blue-collar and manual services workers is increasing.  If that is not enough, there is increased demand but shortages in raw materials.

There is no need for despair.  Robotics has come a long way over the decades and has a quick return on investment.

"Labor is extremely important, but if it's in short supply what do you do?" said Brandon Ellis, president of elliTek. "You have to create labor.  Make investments in automation now while money is cheap.  The return on your investment will pay off quicker than you can imagine."

Robotics can improve speed to market by performing simple tasks quickly, consistently, and predictably.  Adding robotics allows the reclassification of existing employees to perform more complex tasks that are too expensive or difficult to automate.  Robots can scale and adapt to changing market demands.  A robot can be programmed to perform multiple tasks in a single setup which alleviates transition time, training, and space constraints.  Quality is increased and scrap is decreased when a robot is added to a process.
