Due to Corona, there is a major trend towards regional manufacturing, from which we in Sweden or any other western country can greatly benefit from. It’s a golden opportunity to automate small-series manufacturing. The Project Produce in Sweden developed an automation guide for flexible automation. They show that it is possible to have a sustainable, competitive and profitable small series production in Sweden. This is also true for any other country in the US or Europe.
