Recently, Plastics News published an interesting article with an interesting chart. The chart showed the “number of multipurpose industrial robots per 10,000 employees in the manufacturing industry.”
Essentially, it’s one measure of how advanced each country’s manufacturing sector is.
China, with just 49 robots per 10,000 manufacturing industry employees, is at the low end. South Korea, with 531 robots per 10,000 employees, is at the top of the chart. The United States, with 176, is somewhere in the middle.
So, we wondered how we stacked up.
It turns out that, if Ray Products were a country, we’d have the most advanced, most automated manufacturing sector in the world.
