The increasing automation of dangerous, tedious and repetitive tasks is a symbol of technological progress at the service of man and bearer of productivity and competitiveness. In France, as in Western Europe, the sustainability of an industrial site is conditioned to its high productivity and the flexibility and scalability of its production tool in a context of globalized market with strong competition and whose needs change rapidly.
