Technology and Automation
Many manufacturers are plagued by aging facilities, older equipment, and lagging technology. To compete, and win, even the smallest of manufacturers must look at updating their physical assets to take advantage of new opportunities to improve the performance and lifespan of materials, develop innovative products and processes, and cut costs through implementation of automation and robotics. IMEC also leverages our strategic operating partnerships with Illinois' leading engineering and research Universities and non-profits to facilitate the transfer of university -based technology to existing manufacturers.
