Rob Britt, Sales Engineer at Kivnon USA recently discussed the upcoming Automate Show and the automation imperative for manufacturers to relieve labor constraints. Read the feature in Robotics Tomorrow magazine.
“The total cost of a fork truck driver including benefits, training, vacation time averaged $40,000 before COVID. That price tag is up 50% to $60,000. That increase is almost impossible to absorb for manufacturing operations, warehouses, and distribution centers, operating two and three shifts. Operations Managers report the budget can rarely absorb increased wages and human resource managers see significant challenges in replacing fork truck drivers,” noted Britt.
Simple magnetic A to B AGV solutions solve the HR challenge and they work three shifts, without breaks, or health insurance. They are readily available and the fastest 2022 automation implementation solution.
The Automate Show, in Detroit June 6 – 9, 2022 is the height of pragmatic reality, namely that automation is no longer optional. The imperative to automate is driven by the fact that hiring a trained and certified fork truck driver is nearly impossible. Automate is produced by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) and is the largest solutions-based showcase of automation, robotics, vision, motion control and more in North America. Kivnon USA will highlight robotics automation during the Automate Show at Booth #4152.
