When looking at selecting an ideal automation partners, knowing their expertise, capabilities, innovation competence, after sales service and support commitment are equally important. This could be just the tip of an iceberg.
Partnerships will further flourish with transparency, quality and trust. In addition, while looking for perfect automation partners, it is utmost essential to look at available technical expertise with a preferred similar industry experience. In textile industry, it is crucial for automation vendors to know the shop floor environment, restrictions and other challenges they might endure. An industry-experienced partner who understands the specific needs of the manufacturer’s industry could enhance operations and guarantee success.
Benefits of advanced automation with the right partner
With advanced automation, high precision and availability of machines is possible with increased efficiency and flexibility. Automated, technologically advanced machines help in optimising costs by increased productivity, reduced wastage and safer workplace. The demand of advanced machines is rising due to the exponentially growing textile and clothing market. However, the biggest challenge for Indian machine manufacturers is competition from international machine builders providing shorter time to market for new machines, higher machine availability and latest technology features. The way Indian machine manufacturers can sustain in the competition is by delivering efficient machines with lesser lead-time, better after sales services and incorporating latest technology innovations.
