What are Industrial Automation Products?

Industrial automation involves using control systems, computers, and robots to automate an enterprise’s production processes; and industrial automation products and systems have become an indispensable part of modern production and industrial processes. In addition to increasing productivity, these technologies are utilized to make the functions of production and control systems more efficient and safe. According to the latest statistics shared by the industry, the global robotic process automation market size is expected to grow by 32.8% between 2020 and 2027, reaching approximately 26 billion dollars by 2027. In addition, according to another study, it is predicted that 1 in 5 of labor costs can be saved with the use of automation in enterprises. In the context of all this data, it is quite possible to predict that the sector we are in will rise rapidly in the coming periods.In this context, industrial automation has become indispensable to modern production and industrial processes. In addition to increasing productivity, these technologies are utilized to make the functions of production and control systems more efficient and safe. In this article, we will briefly touch upon the importance of industrial automation and discuss Mikrodev’s industrial automation products.

What are Automation and Industrial Automation?

Automation is making a process or system operate independently without human intervention; in other words, it involves using control systems, computers, and robots to execute and perform certain operations. 

Industrial automation applies this concept to industry and refers to the application areas and functions of these technologies in industry. As we mentioned in detail in our previous article, “Understanding the Essence of Industrial Automation.”

“Industrial automation systems aim to increase the efficiency, quality, safety, and reliability of industrial enterprises while reducing costs, waste, and human errors.”

What are Industrial Automation Technologies?

Industrial automation is based on technologies that control and monitor processes and equipment. These technologies encompass a variety of tools used to optimize the production processes of a business and can be sorted under several main categories as follows:

 

  1. Control Systems: The heart of industrial automation. These systems organize, monitor, and control processes and machines. PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) and DCSs (Distributed Control Systems) are important examples of this category. 
  1. Sensors and Actuators: Sensors are used to collect data from the physical world, while actuators are used to control processes. This enables industrial automation to manage and react to data in real time.
  1. HMI (Human-Machine Interface): HMI devices enable people to interact with automation systems. This allows operators to monitor processes, input data, and intervene when necessary.
  1. Industrial Networks and Communication Protocols: Industrial networks and communication protocols are used for automation equipment to communicate. This allows data to be shared and processed.
  1. Industrial Robots and Automation Equipment: Industrial automation is used to automate processes through robotic systems. Robots are widely used in production lines and storage facilities.

What is the Importance of Automation in Industrial Plant Installation?

Automation is essential in industrial plant installation to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and ensure safety. As mentioned above, automation systems can monitor, control, and optimize production processes.

The place of automation in industrial plant installation can be summarized as follows:

  • Increases productivity: Automation systems can increase plant efficiency by reducing human error and optimizing production processes.
  • Improves safety: These systems contribute to improving safety by preventing accidents and injuries in the plant. 
  • Increases flexibility: Automation systems increase plant flexibility by quickly adapting production processes. 

Some areas where automation is used in industrial plant installation can be listed as follows: 

  • Production: Automation systems control, monitor, and optimize production processes.
  • Transportation: These systems also control material handling and storage processes.
  • Control: Automation systems are used to monitor and control the different methods of the plant.
  • Safety: Automation systems prevent potential accidents, injuries, or other adverse situations in the plant.

Ultimately, automation is essential in industrial plant installation, enabling the plant to operate more efficiently, safely, and flexibly. Properly designing and installing automation systems as well as industrial automation products significantly helps ensure the plant’s long-term success.
