Automation has long been a part of the manufacturing industry, driving massive productivity gains, slashing costs, and boosting quality.

The next step in the evolution of manufacturing automation - artificial intelligence (AI) through automated machine learning - is poised to fundamentally transform the way manufacturers do business.

AI and Manufacturing

Arcanum is helping innovative manufacturers meet the challenges of intensified global competition and complex governance of factories, suppliers, and distribution networks, by speeding the PDCA cycle through automated machine learning.

Even the most modern manufacturing facilities require humans to undertake an average of 70% of the tasks. In a world where machine sensors are generating more data than ever before, there are still huge parts of the process manually monitored. For the vast majority of traditional manufacturing companies, exploiting the potential of technology is perceived as either too expensive or too hard to realize benefits from.

Arcanum believes in deploying simple yet powerful solutions that can generate rapid return on investment. Utilising readily available camera and sensor hardware, intelligent automation and highly visual interfaces, Arcanum can support the defense against (lower-cost) competitors.
