FAQ's

What is considered a heavy industry?

A heavy industry is defined as such if it encounters sizable products, equipment, facilities, or processes. Heavy industry does not typically sell directly to consumers, which enables the great capital it generates. This can often involve more traditional industries, such as transportation, metallurgy, manufacturing, and construction, though the concept of a heavy industry has evolved in the last decade. Chemical engineering, including nuclear engineering, gas and oil, and specialised branches of manufacturing, such as automotive and aerospace, are now considered under the umbrella of heavy industry.

How is automation used within heavy industry?

There is huge potential for automation, including movement automation, to be utilised within heavy industry; despite this, many heavy industry sectors and individual operations fail to unlock the full potential of automation. The nature of heavy industry means there are many opportunities for processes to become automated, in order to increase efficiency, safety, and reliability of output. 

Some of these processes may include manufacturing and assembly operations; processing and data logging; palletising and storing of products; packaging. Movement automation can aid with the repositioning or transportation of machinery which is required for processes such as these.
