John Hayes Vecna VP Logistics Explains Full Employment Driving Automation Among All Manufacturers

John Hayes, Vice President of Sales and Logistics for Vecna Logistics, discussed the impact of near full employment is having on increased automation among even the smallest manufacturers in the recent issue of AutomationMedia.com.

According to Hayes, “Manufacturers are investing in AGVs to improve plant-floor efficiency and reduce operating cost. Due to the high cost of entry, automated guided vehicles were only found in warehouses, automotive assembly plants, and other operations with large amounts of floor space. Low unemployment combined with recent advancements have made the machines more appealing to small- and mid-sized manufacturers in a wide variety of industries.

As flexible technology becomes more affordable and easier to use on assembly lines, many smaller manufacturers and single location distribution centers are deploying driverless carts, robotic parts bins, and autonomous tuggers. Manufacturing engineers have best-practice lean manufacturing solutions which are driving prices down making these solutions available to everyone.
