The cross-industry impact of smart automation

Looking for greater efficiency, less downtime and a better workflow? Our automation expertise and Sketch-to-Scale® solutions make it possible. Here are a few examples of how we’re helping companies in different industries benefit from smart automation – and what you need to know to get started.

Smarter industrial processes, increased productivity


Smart automation in your industrial processes means more than faster production and better output – it can mean more transparency and better predictability in your operations.


Imagine if your equipment could show you in real-time exactly how many units it’s produced in a day, or alert you to potential failure. Machine maintenance becomes more efficient with robotic feedback sensors to capture analytics, monitoring defects and avoiding downtime. With smart automation, vital information is funneled to the right place, at the right time.


We investigate, qualify and deploy the latest technologies and process in manufacturing, including smart automation. We combine that with the best of what we’ve learned from our decades of manufacturing experience, and we deploy those learnings to our sites around the world. So, your product gets access to the materials, processes and technologies it needs to stay ahead.


Advanced healthcare, better patient outcomes


Smart automation is reinventing healthcare device development and bringing products to market faster. We deliver an array of healthcare devices through processes like precision plastics, including custom mold development and automated assembly. You can depend on our experience manufacturing drug delivery devices, such as patches, inhalers, auto-injectors, syringe barrels and plunger rods, plastic implantable devices and laboratory consumables.


We customize our solutions around patient care and provider requirements, with less time investment on your end from concept to delivery. We design and build with usability in mind, which means fewer user errors – and better compliance and adherence.


Strategic energy management, efficient performance


Data insights drive progress in renewable energy, energy storage and energy management technologies. Our NEXTracker solutions automate the collection of solar energy data. From smart meters that transmit usage data to smart grids that respond to energy load shifts, we create equipment to keep your operations efficient.


With smart automation through NEXTracker solutions, you have more visibility into your energy data. Data insights make it possible to balance energy loads and improve overall performance, making it easier for you to focus on new projects


Smart automation makes it easier to increase productivity and lower costs – without losing quality. This modern approach helps simplify complex workflows and increase transparency. We use end-to-end automation to help our customers achieve quality results without downtime.
