Industrial Automation

The United States is a major global producer of industrial automation equipment. In 2015, U.S. companies exported nearly $10.5 billion worth of products to foreign markets. This was down from nearly $10.7 billion in 2014, representing the first decrease in annual exports since the 2008 recession. (US Dep. of Commerce)

"Automation's main objective is to reduce the number of monotonous tasks, allowing businesses to better allocate resources to higher value propositions, such as research or business development. Other reasons for automation include the needs to improve product quality, to consistently meet exacting specifications, or to improve speed of output". 2016 ITA Industrial Automation Top Markets Report

By enlarge, today’s firms in the US are equipped with machineries requiring some sort of pneumatic actuation to properly carry out their activities. In manufacturing, piece moving or even simple holding of parts, pneumatic control is often required. This is due to a number of factors which include safety, maintenance and cost.
