About Robotics Update

The UK stands on the cusp of a manufacturing renaissance, with new reports on global production strategy highlighting Britain as a key manufacturing hub. Increases in productivity mean it can now compete against low-cost economies. Indeed, the UK has emerged as one of Western Europe’s lowest cost manufacturing locations, and as a result many companies are starting to realign their global sourcing and production networks.

With improvements in competitiveness over the last decade and a willingness to invest in automation, the UK is attracting new manufacturing investment and jobs. But driving the industry forwards will depend on a still greater emphasis on automation, and in particular in robotics.

Robotics Update is the online magazine for industrial robots and automation equipment, where users from a multitude of industries can find information about products and systems, and read comment, case studies and technical articles. Information is sourced from the leading players in the industry, and content is updated daily.
