This paper analyzes the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of different technologies used to automate a particular process. In this way, we have analyzed the drilling of metal parts for a specific product. According to some part features and volume, three different systems (electrical controls, PLC and microprocessing) were implemented and compared, to establish the best industrial implementation.
