COVID-19 Becomes a Driver in Factory Automation

Experts in factory automation are proving that "smart manufacturing" initiatives can provide safer environments for workers, along with driving higher factory output.

Automated parts cleaning with vapor degreasing provides social distancing for workers as recommended by local and world health agencies. One operator runs the automated batch cleaning process from load-in, cleaning, rinsing, to drying and load-out of manufactured parts.

It eliminates close quarter manual cleaning and provides more consistent, repeatable cleaning results. Plus, it helps reduce work related injuries caused by lifting or carrying baskets of parts through the workplace.
