In this day and age most processes can be automated or at least semi-automated.
Large or small manufacturers can make use of automation by utilizing lean manufacturing principles to increase production and reduce costs.
Look in the CMA Robotics page for automated robotic application of coatings. Our NikoTRACK conveyor systems offer perfect integration from manual through semi-automation to full automation of parts movement and material handling applications. Sarmax coating systems are an industry leader with flat timber panels and automated flow coating techniques in the timber industry.
All automated and robotic systems will use compressed air and pneumatic operations to some degree. We have a close relationship with Metal Work Pneumatics for automated pneumatic systems and robotic integration.
