Distrelec, one of Europe’s leading distributors of electronics and electronic components, has released the second part of its acclaimed Robotics and Automation Guide. This three-part eBook, penned by Distrelec executives and industry experts, delivers valuable insights to help engineers automate manufacturing processes and workflows.

The first part, released earlier this year, featured a brief history of robotics, as well as information about robot types, applications, industry 5.0 and cobots. The second part announced today looks beyond manufacturing, and it explores sectors that can benefit from smart automation like agriculture. It also provides valuable input to overcome financial obstacles to automation.

“Our Robotics and Automation guide was written with today’s factory engineers firmly in mind” said Justyna Matuszak, Editor in Chief. “Improving production efficiencies and sustainable manufacturing are some of the greatest challenges of our time. You’ll be able to discover in our guide how robotics is a key part of the industrial revolution through network connectivity, and how robots can be embedded into certain workflows and ecosystems to simplify the process and increase efficiency.”

The second edition of this guide, along with the first part, can now be viewed free of charge on Distrelec’s ’KnowHow’ platform: The third and final part will be published later this year.
