02.10.2020

Automation allows the work to be done automatically without the need for manpower in industry and all systemic works.

With the increase in population since the industrial revolution, production alone has not been enough. It has become a necessity to make productions fast, reliable and efficient. In industrial systems, this obligation is expected to be solved with automation.
The operation of automation systems is carried out not by a single device, but by the joint work of units that include control units that use many automation technologies together.

Automation systems come to the fore with machines that cannot be done with human power. Moreover, you can minimize your costs thanks to automation systems.Moreover, you do not have to pay expensive fees for machines and automation systems that minimize labor costs.

Automation; efficiency analysis, energy saving and detailed measurements are systems. In addition, it offers the opportunity to make detailed reporting.
Sharing percentages of the job are taken as a basis to determine the level of automation. In automation systems, if manpower is predominant, it is called semi-automation. If the machine power is used intensively, it is called full automation.

Automation systems keep up with the changing and developing world market. It is always necessary to be fast, safe and efficient in order to survive in the competitive conditions in a large and open market. Considering the production systems, the importance of automation is better understood.
Different devices are mentioned for different automation applications. Commonly used devices are systems such as PLC, HMI, SCADA or inverter.

Types of Automation Systems
  • Industrial Machine Automation
  • Warehouse Automation
  • Lighting Automation Systems
  • PLC Automation
  • Factory Automation
  • Building Automation
  • Home Automation

Advantages of Automation Systems
  • Increase in quality
  • Production cost reduction
  • Increased competitiveness
  • Production cost reduction
  • Decrease in occupational accidents
  • Time savings can be counted

Disadvantages of Automation Systems
  • The disadvantage of automation systems is that the first assembly is costly.
  • Cost pays off in most automation systems in a long time.
  • With the factory automation systems, the number of factory employees decreases, the investment expenditures of the enterprises increase as a result of the automation and unemployment occurs.


The sharing percentage of the total work determines the level of automation. Automation systems with intense manpower are defined as semi-automation, and systems with heavy machinery are defined as full automation. Production in industry; Fast, standard, secure, finally efficient is achieved thanks to automation.
