Benefits of Robotic Automation, Floor by Floor
The home flooring industry is being impacted by new automation technologies more than ever. How else do you explain the versatile, affordable, and aesthetically superior flooring options that you get to choose from these days?
With automation technologies and robotics, the home flooring industry has also become more nuanced and for all good reasons. Here are some of them:
Budgeted Flooring Upgrades for Calgary Homeowners
Till about a couple of decades ago, hardwood was one of the few flooring options available in the Alberta area. Though they have a longer lifespan, hardwoods are steeply-priced, need to be carefully used and maintained, and have a more complex installation process. But now, automation has made ‘resilient flooring’ such as vinyl and laminate materials an available option. That isn’t it, with automation and its stimulated design processes, you now have vinyl and laminate flooring that mimics the antique look of hand-scraped hardwood and looks as luxurious and cozy.
Like most of the other industries, automation-led optimization has completely revamped the manufacturing costs in the home flooring industry. With a reduction in costs such as those of floor staff, supply, and transportation, it’s a win-win for the manufacturers and the consumers both. While local manufacturers enjoy higher productivity and more sales, this also supports the local family-owned flooring stores like Home Floors and allows them to pass on the cost-benefits to the end-users.
As automation becomes more common in the flooring industry, grading of wood has become incredibly precise and easy. Instead of the human eye, robotized technology now scans wood from panels to finish lines. This optimized quality check ensures that the hardwood that you get is free of moulds and other aesthetic or dimensional defects helping in reduced reworks and costly production delays. Not just this, automation allows for better utilization, reduced costs and wastages, and enhanced productivity of the warehousing and supply chain processes.
Traditionally hardwood floors were sanded and installed on site. This required a large team of installers and a longer timeline, which not just made homeowners pay up more from their pockets but also led to a messier home during this process. But now with the advent of robotic-led installations, factory-finished floors and quicker installations have become a reality. This reduces the chance of unpredictable situations and the margin of errors especially when each home has unique installation needs such as the décor, lighting, temperature controls, and personal flooring choices of Calgary homeowners. Robotics also make flooring installation easier over elements such as vents and stairs in homes.
Besides these benefits, automation in flooring will also take over other subjective human aspects such as creativity and emotional intelligence. Homeowners will be treated to a more personalized shopping experience that rides over human biases in terms of understanding the needs of the shoppers. The Home Flooring store in Calgary offers an improved and automated floor buying experience that will make your dream home become a reality.
