Hurco continues to partner with companies like BMO Automation because we know that today's modern machine shop needs turn-key solutions to help fight the skills gap. Many of the protocols, technologies, industry standards, etc... that comprise modern manufacturing technology were quickly adopted and developed in Europe because they simply don’t have enough people to fill manufacturing positions. The same skills gap that prompted Europe to quickly develop and adopt these automation technologies is starting to appear in machine shops in the United States as well.
Industrial Automation today is not only for high volume/low-mix production that requires massive amounts of money, time, and resources. Today, IIOT, Industry 4.0, and CNC machine tending automation are readily available for all shop operations, no matter the scale.
