The knock against “automation”, from the Greek word meaning “self-dedicated”, may be that it’s a bit complicated. But companies provide automation equipment and services to make the world a simpler place, ultimately making life and business easier. The overall global industrial automation market is expected to grow to more than $200 billion by 2015 as the world economy, by and large, expands.
Automation, robotics, industrial automation, process control and numerical control all use computers to manage industrial machinery and processes. Automation typically reduces ongoing maintenance and enhances process control system performance. To understand the state of the automation industry, it’s always a good idea to focus on trade fairs that provide an overview of products, developments and trends as manufacturers present their latest groundbreaking innovations and demonstrate advances at the cutting edge of the industry.
