Contract shop Energy Dynamics said demographics provide one of the reasons why this shop bought a robot. As baby boomers retire, the shop will probably have to replace them with less-skilled employees. The shop believes it should start learning how to shift to a more-automated process now.

This other shop bought an automated pallet cell not to replace jobs, but to secure them. Because automation provides extra capacity, the business volume here can go up and down significantly without the staff level having to change.

It seems almost inevitable that machining facilities of the future will need to leverage labor further by implementing processes that are more systemized and more automated. Do you agree? If you do, then your shop should be taking deliberate steps today that move in that direction.
