Manufacturing Connect Investing in the revolution at CNC Robotics

The Fourth Industrial Revolution means the manufacturing sector is moving into an exciting and futuristic new era. Robots, automation and an explosion in the use of data to analyse production all promise to improve manufacturers’ bottom line through increased productivity, quicker time to market and higher quality goods.

But in an uncertain time for manufacturing, how do business leaders know what the right investment is, as well as how and when to make that investment?
