Innovative Thinking

Trends in Industrial Automation

The world we live in is ever-changing and fast-paced through the advancements of technology. With tremendous strides and continuous progress that occurs monthly, industrial automation puts technology to full use. Automation can entail many things, from a simple start-stop conveyor system to a full production line with safety systems, data collection, and more. Swift progress in automation and technology has led us to IoT 4.0, also known as the industrial internet of things 4.0.

Combining Industry 4.0 and Sustainable Energy

The advent of sustainable energy systems and introduction of digital transformation within the industry is substantially altering the way of life for people all across the globe. The way people consume, live, produce and trade are all being affected and changing, for the better.

Automating High Mix Manufacturing Plants

The manufacturing process for a single product can be modified much easier in order to improve its efficiency and productivity, compared to a plant floor where several different products are being produced. Higher Return on Investment is the prime motivation for automation, and improving the parameter becomes more complex as the production capacity increases in difficulty.

Challenges of Implementing Robotic Process Automation

Robots aren’t plug & play devices, especially not in an industrial setting. They require considerable prep-work, ranging from the initial design stage, to implementation, to regressive testing & troubleshooting. Things can get even more complicated when you are trying to achieve a great degree of automation through robots that work in conjunction, not just from the technical point of view, but from the financial side as well.

Benefits of Robotic Grinding and Finishing

 Robotic material removal processes are capable of instilling considerable economical and operational benefits within plant floors. Compared to manual processes, robotic grinding is more robust, streamlined and manageable.

Premier Automation CEO, Eli Evankovich, joins ARM Institute Board of Directors

March 28, 2019 – Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) announced that Eli  Evankovich, CEO of Premier Automation LLC,  has joined the non-profit organization’s board of directors. According the the ARM institute, Evankovich will work with other board members and ARM leadership to help  increase U.S. global competitiveness by accelerating innovative technologies that make robots more accessible to U.S. manufacturers. 

The Robot Revolution

Robots are no longer giant, mechanic beasts that are reserved for heavy-lifting and seemingly repetitive tasks. Now, they are changing, becoming more collaborative, mobile and intelligent. While they are changing due to technological breakthroughs, they are establishing a new place in the industry for themselves.

Premier Automation is Now a Lincoln Electric Authorized Robotic Integrator

Premier Automation has recently become a  Lincoln Electric Authorized Robotic Integrator. Lincoln Electric’s Authorized Robotic Integrator Program assists qualified integrators to better serve their customers, while having Lincoln Electric as a dedicated robotic welding partner. As a Lincoln Electric Robotic Integrator, Premier Automation can work with customers to deliver innovative, state-of-the-art welding solutions. Premier Automation engineers can offer expertise on all aspects of the equipment and processes to create success for our customers.

AI’s Impact on the Robotics Industry

 There is a considerable amount of confusion and misconception around the term Artificial Intelligence or AI, and its uses. Often thought of as something too difficult to understand, researchers have been working on it for decades now, and are trying their best to mainstream the idea into industrial applications.

Premier Automation To Open Washington, PA Location

MONROEVILLE, PA —In the near future, Premier Automation will begin operations at a new location near Washington, PA. The new facility will allow Premier Automation to more conveniently serve customers with increased capacity. The expansion will be located in an existing 66,000 square foot facility and will offer full engineering and manufacturing services. The new manufacturing space will be used to build large and small electrical controls to support the growing manufacturing base in western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
