Rob, I agree with your comments. I'm sure that there have been plenty of robots used in aerospace mfg but there are significant opportunities moving ahead. The size of the work cells definitely favors more manual labor than other industries but automation offers advantages as well.
Interesting, Al, that aerospace is adopting robots. In some ways it seems late, in other ways, it's surprising the industry is using robots at all. It will be interesting to see whether aerospace also adopts inspection robotics the way that automotive did.
