Today we’re taking a look at the Top Ten episodes of The Automation Minute released since 2020.

If you don’t know, The Automation Minute is our shorter, typically under 5 minutes, videos series, where as The Automation Show is our longer format series, with episodes typically clocking in at 10 or 20 minutes.

We’ve found that this short duration format is a perfect length to answer viewers questions, or take a first look at new products.

And thanks to the growing support from industry, we had the chance to work with several new vendors to produce many new product First Looks, some of which you’ll find below in this year’s Top Ten list:
