Q What makes you optimistic about the future of the automation industry? A The automation industry is growing faster now than it ever has. We continue to build new products that people do amazing things with. And we’ve been able to bring the cost of robots down. Way back when even a SCARA robot was $40,000 or $50,000. Now we have those robots down to the range of $7,500. That allows us to start getting into all these other applications that we couldn’t do in the past.
