"New products are increasingly complex, both mechanically and electronically. Without automation, meeting these demands would be impossible, considering the high quality requirements. Thus, the growth rate of assembly technology continues to increase worldwide. It also contributes to long-term employment opportunities in high-wage economies such as Germany."
