Kollerup Presented the Government’s New Robot Analysis
It was the innovation, the competencies and the growth opportunities that the robot industry holds that were the background for Minister of Business and Industry Simon Kollerup’s visit. In connection with the visit, Kollerup published the government’s new analysis of the large untapped automation potential that exists among many production companies.
Casper Hansen sees it as a strong and good signal that the Minister of Business and Industry is focusing on the possibilities of robot technology:
“It is very positive that there is a political focus on the societal benefits of robots, and it is gratifying that the analysis confirms the great socio-economic and business benefits that society will experience if more SMEs in particular use robots in their daily production,” Casper Hansen , CEO of Technicon says.
In relation to the government’s new analysis, Casper Hansen agrees with the conclusions and adheres to the barriers that, according to the analysis, make companies refrain from investing in robots.
“The analysis indicates that companies consider a lack of skills, knowledge and time to be a hindrance. I would venture the claim that it has never been easier to get started with robots, and in a time like this where many companies look for labor in vain, the benefits of flexible automation are even greater, ” Casper Hansen says.
