The Intersection of Electric Drive and Automation Technologies

March 14, 2022
There is an increasing shift toward marrying electrification and automation which will offer many opportunities for manufacturers in industrial markets.

Lloyd Gomm, Vice President of Business Development at Delta-Q Technologies, a ZAPI GROUP company, says there is an ongoing shift toward bringing together electrification and automation. The electric drive world is moving more and more toward robotics and other automated applications such as AGVs (automated guided vehicles), he says, which will bring about many opportunities.

Major changes are taking place in industrial markets, of which electrification and automation are a part, brought about by increases in e-commerce, efforts to improve sustainability and other factors. As such, there will be many growth opportunities for manufacturers working in this space. Just in the past year ZAPI GROUP has seen investments by customers in electrification accelerate, and expects they will continue in the years to come.

ZAPI GROUP will be hosting a virtual conference on The Future of Electrification April 5-7, 2022. Read more about the event and how to register
