Machines have been around since ancient times, but they were not really considered “automated” until the Industrial Revolution brought about new technologies that allowed for mass production and high volume output. Today, machines are automated in various ways – from computer numerical controls (CNC) for precision cutting machinery to robotic arms used for assembly line jobs. In addition, newer machines may incorporate sensors that monitor speed, position, force, temperature, and humidity. These sensors allow an operator to program a machine to perform specific tasks automatically. Motion control systems are also becoming increasingly important in industries such as food processing, ...Read more
