Fifth Third Bank sponsored and Fusion hosted an event last week held at Fusion headquarters called "Meet the Cobots." Over 25 C-suite executives met up for a half day event where cobots and human resources were the main topics.

I attended the RUC 2019 show in Quebec last week and what an amazing show it was! I had the privilege of speaking on a panel where we discussed Cobot Stories From Factories. We dove into starting small and not over complicating cobots, looking beyond ROI, and standardizing cobot setups.

Time is the most critical commodity everyone has, and we all know there’s only 24 hours in a day to fit everything in. So how do you manage life outside of work if you’re working 55 hours a week, and is that extra time put in truly productive time spent at work?

With the growing need for manufacturing jobs to be filled, the cobotic industry is growing exponentially to fill the gap, as well as empowering employees to do more cerebral vs. monotonous tasks. The goal is to replace the least desirable and most time-consuming parts of the job with a solution that streamlines processes.

We opened our facilities in Burr Ridge for an open house event last month co-hosted by IMEC. The event focused on Solving the Manufacturing Labor Challenge. Presenters took to a variety of topics around cobots along with tours of our machine shop, and a mini-trade show. There are 6 total videos you can watch in the series. Subscribe to our YouTube page for future event coverage, trainings and cobot demonstrations.

Fusion makes every effort to stay informed of the latest advances in manufacturing, making sure we are staying ahead of the needs of our customers. In the case of cobotics (collaborative robots), it was our machinists who were sending me social media posts on these new advances asking me to pursue this venture. Their goal was to reduce the time they were spending loading and unloading parts all day long so that they can do more advanced tasks. And they indeed were onto something significant.
