A common misconception surrounds manufacturing today: the idea that introducing robotics and other automation equipment into the picture will rapidly dry up the industry’s career opportunities. In fact, automation does the opposite – by creating even MORE demand for human intelligence and ingenuity.

Building and maintaining the factory of the future requires capable individuals who enjoy solving problems and thrive on novelty. While the humdrum jobs of the past may be in short supply as they get transferred to robots, the installing, troubleshooting, and innovating tasks — essentially, the exciting ones — will be desperately in need of takers.

Furthermore, these jobs tend to be safer, pay better, and offer more opportunities for growth. Read on to find out how you can use your skills to thrive in today’s manufacturing job market.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to build the factory of the future? From fully autonomous mobile robots to human-like machine vision systems, the things that used to be “science fiction” are now real. What’s more, You can be working alongside them.

Stay ahead of the curve, with or without an engineering degree 

It’s obvious that opportunity will be knocking loudly at the door of anyone with a degree in engineering. But did you know that the automation industry also needs people who aren’t engineers? In fact, one of the job titles that’s poised to grow exponentially is automation technician, which you can do with just an associate degree or even a high school diploma.

Automation technicians help install, operate, maintain, and troubleshoot robotic systems that are a staple of today’s manufacturing plant and the factory of the future. If you enjoy working with machinery and watching how mechanical systems evolve over time, then this could be the career for you.

A career in technical sales is another excellent opportunity for anyone who loves the idea of working in automation but isn’t interested in becoming an engineer. As a technical sales associate, you’ll learn about the latest automation technologies and help prospective customers see how they can use them to solve their business challenges.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
