This is the age of machines. Whether it is construction, agriculture, or manufacturing, our reliance on technology-driven equipment is increasing every day. However, for any machine to function seamlessly, the component and part quality is paramount, and this goes for gears as well. In fact, we are witnessing a greater focus on gear technology, with OEMs, contract suppliers, and other stakeholders bringing quality and customer-satisfaction to the center stage.
The incorporation of emerging technologies like AI, IoT, robotic process automation (RPA) in the manufacturing processes of gear elements is not only accelerating the production cycle but also facilitating greater returns for everyone involved. Specifically, automated precision manufacturing technologies are enabling the development of gears with accurate and durable features, including better teeth concentricity, enhanced alignment, and greater gear toughness.
In particular, with the global automotive industry witnessing rapid growth, the prevalence of these new-age gear manufacturing technologies is only increasing. And the pandemic crisis is only accelerating this trend, prompting manufacturers to place their stakes on RPA. These organizations are implementing robotic equipment to take over manual tasks and facilitate uninterrupted production cycles on the factory floor. As these trends take hold in gear manufacturing, customers are witnessing quicker delivery rates and enhanced quality.
In the wake of these industry changes, we have compiled this issue of Manufacturing Outlook to assist manufacturers, suppliers, as well customers to find accomplished gear tech solution providers and consulting companies. In this edition, we have listed the top 10 gear tech solution providers and consulting companies to highlight those making significant contributions to the gear tech sector. This edition also blends thought leadership articles from subject-matter experts, CIOs, and CXOs, with real-life stories on how the solution providers and consulting companies have enhanced the capabilities of their clients. We hope this issue of Manufacturing Outlook helps you build the partnership you and your organization need to foster a sector driven by robust and efficient technology.
