Manufacturers Replace Metal with Plastic to Reap Benefits of Plastic Resins While Maintaining Integrity of Metals

In today's fast-paced world there is an immense pressure on manufacturers to create a better, faster, stronger, cheaper product, and only those who are willing to adapt and innovate will survive. Manufacturers who've been dragging their heels (or worse, kicking & screaming) are now getting on-board with replacing metal parts with plastic ones.

How Robotics Has Helped The Manufacturing Industry

Few industries have been impacted more by the advent of robotics than the manufacturing industry. In fact, the manufacturing industry was one of the first to implement robotics all the way back in 1961. Since then, science-fiction has become a normal part of life. Let's take a look at how robotics has become an indispensable asset to the manufacturing industry.
