Factory automation is growing in demand globally. Suppliers and distributors have seen a dramatic increase in the volume of goods, adding to the need for more automated warehouses. To meet this demand, manufacturers are building new automated plants while retrofitting old factories to increase productivity. At the core of factory automation is the conveyor belt. This application moves product from point A to point B in an efficient manner, while also allowing the items that travel on it to be sorted, augmented or modified in some way. Factory outfitters and manufacturers are looking for ways to decrease wear and tear, increase capabilities and improve communication of conveyor belt systems.
