What is Industrial Automation?

Industrial automation can be described as the automatically controlled operation of an apparatus, process, or system by mechanical or electronic devices that replace human control. PHD actuators are typically employed as the building blocks of these machines, systems and devices to provide the required mechanical motion for a wide variety of processes. Applications include loading/unloading, assembly, packaging, workholding, positioning, material handling, orienting and feeding.
