The disruptions caused by COVID-19 are directing manufacturing companies to tap automation and enable Robotic supply chains. The pandemic is quite instructive that the global supply chains that bring us many of our products have weakened in the process. The utilization of programmable industrial robots will increase and solve many problems to produce the products that we use.
So, what are the Supply Chain Solutions to Fight Disruptions like COVID-19?
As of last fall, most of the manufacturing companies reported unoccupied jobs, owing in large part to a gap between the skills companies required and the skill-sets employees had in the recent scenarios.
“So, if workers aren’t accessible, one alternative is the enablement of robots and automated processes that can support the supply chains by tapping automation for the post-pandemic world.”
How Software can enable Workers to Program Industrial Robots for Manufacturing Tasks
There are specific software and hardware devices to facilitate industrial robots. The software assists workers with little to no understanding of robotics to programming industrial robots for performing different manufacturing processes and activities.
With tailored robots, manufacturing companies can use them for custom runs, blending up with what they manufacture currently.
The Robotic Supply Chains Solutions – Robo Pick & Scan Mechanism by Shubham Automation
The team at Shubham Automation has mechanized the next steps of its automated processes by the Pick & Scan mechanism with its innovative Robo device, which is known as Robo Scan. This Robotics based smart aggregation system secures and makes the aggregation process seamless. This technology comes with a one-stop solution for all size and type of package scanning for consumer packaging goods and pharma industry.

The bottles are discharged and the Robo picks & places the bottles in the shipper box as per the laid down matrix, which best fits in bulk packing line. The Robo can even place the layers in the box and fill the bottles in the set box automatedly. The further change part and other customizations can be applied for scaling the mechanism as per customized requirements.
Enablement of the Scanning Processes by Shubham’s Team
Shubham has introduced a single high-resolution smart camera-based technology that captures and reads all 2D codes of the stack in the field of vision to enable multiple code reading. Once the bottles are in accordance with the pre-set production process, a parent-child relationship is created, and the box is further labeled using the TTO type printer both manually or can be automated through our Print and Apply solution.
Key Benefits of the Robo Pick & Scan Mechanism comprises
- End to End Automation
- Innovative and Swift Processes
- Highly Accurate Procedures
- Free from Manual Errors
- Highly Robust and Scalable System

All these automation-based transformations were already in process and underway previous to the pandemic. However, COVID-19 is now accelerating them swiftly. So, the future outlook of supply chain infrastructure will be persistent in recovering the slowed-down economy through automation and by enabling Robotic supply chains in a quick time.
The Coronavirus pandemic is speeding up the rise of automation processes on a global basis. A COVID-19 caused downturn will likely go-ahead to a spike in automation; it means companies will reorganize their operations depending more on automated machine systems.
Whether it is in the processing or the packaging of the products, automating processes, and attempting to free the human hands are needed to advance industries. If there are two industries that we just cannot do without, it has to be the food and pharmaceutical industry. For food manufacturing companies enhancing productivity throughout their plants with the utilization of factory automation solutions is highly essential.
Also, the pharmaceutical industry is increasingly utilizing production automation and robotics to automate procedures in drug development, along with drug screening, anti-counterfeiting, and manufacturing activities. The solutions for pharmaceutical manufacturing companies can help attain suppleness, optimized production, as well as regulatory compliance through automation processes.
Enabling Industrial Automation
The enablement of automation is quite significant for diverse industries and sectors. Enabling industrial automation starts with automated washing, air-jet cleaning, sealing, capping, automated weighing, mix up prevention, automated printing & applying, labelling, pasting, coding, pick & place and tracking thousands of products with detailed reports through automation-based solutions.
Further, compromise in product quality, hygiene, and errors are enormous pains in all industrial sectors, be it Pharmaceutical, Food, FMCG, or Chemical Fertilizers. Human errors in packaging, labelling, or tracing can lead to hazardous consequences.
Coming to Industrial Quality Assurance solutions, they assist organizations in preventing mistakes, defects, and any kind of product issues. On the other side, Track & Trace Solutions make sure that every shipment is within the organization’s knowledge, every batch is tracked as well as traced, and the organization has the complete grasp of their products from anywhere across the globe.
Admittance and Penetration of Robots for Automation
Access and penetration of Robots don’t crop up at a balanced or a measured time and speed. As an alternative, automation occurs in burst out, especially in shocking times, such as economic disturbances, when humans turn comparatively more costly as the company’s revenues quickly decline. At these times, employers shed less-skilled staff and restore them with advanced technology and better-skilled workers, which boost labor productivity in a downturn scenario.
However, even new technologies will facilitate automation for manufacturers by enabling both humans as well as machines increasingly working side by side and adding up to more productivity.
Summary of Industrial Impacts that will accelerate the Rise of Automation Worldwide:
- Companies can rush to deploy automation technologies depending upon the impacts of Coronavirus on different industries.
- Automation may redirect the advancement of work and eventually retool most industries.
- Automation will help in speeding up workflows and enabling human contactless tasks.
- The use of automation will be increased to enhance the skill-sets of the current workforce.
- With industry automation, hygiene, accuracy, and speed of work can be better facilitated.
- Automation and robotics can lessen the labor costs as well as amplify work productivity.
Most enterprise companies have initiated and will find new ways of enabling their operational automation to boost productivity levels. One thing is sure that the impact of Coronavirus will positively change the definition of managing industrial operations across the globe.
Many economists have outlined these scenarios as the cyclical world of automation. So, if the future of work requires enablement of advanced automation, firm quality assurance, and smart Track & Trace Solutions, all these requirements need to be facilitated for addressing the Coronavirus pandemic.
