I just left the material handling industry as an automation engineer. gently caress it to death. Plants with zero downtime policy, sites that run 24/7/365, 18 hour work days, everything is always an emergency. Meetings at 8am sunday. 2am sunday. 7pm mon-fri. Calls when you're on call. Calls when you're not on call. Calls when you're already on a call.

We just received these brand new 2020 case-packers that are so incredibly over-engineered its amazing! I complain a lot about the old stuff but at least they kept it somewhat simple, now you need a PhD or something to diagnose these goddamn things. I literally can't even imagine where you would add another servo-motor inside of these, there's like 40 of them in a machine that just makes a box and puts a bunch of pouches in it. I can't wait for the slightest mechanical issue to completely grind the machine to a halt and be really annoying to diagnose.

Their marketing team deserves to win an industry award though.
