How Advances in Grippers and Collaborative Robots are Solving Automation Challenges

What’s easy for humans can be so hard for a robot. But innovations in gripping, software, and collaborative robots are leading to rapidly improving capabilities — while increasing the number of possible applications. It’s now simpler, quicker, and cheaper to automate sophisticated solutions in manufacturing, assembly, logistics, warehousing, packaging, and surface finishing.

Join an exclusive conversation moderated by Robert Huschka from the Association for Advancing Automation (A3). You’ll learn more about these technologies, explore potential use-cases, and see how you can apply them in your business. Our expert panel will include:

  • Jim Cooper, FANUC
  • Joe Campbell, Universal Robots
  • Tom Reek, SCHUNK
  • Kristian Hulgard, OnRobot

April 24th! Create a Ruthlessly Efficient Machine Shop: Automation & Technology Webinar

Collaborative robotics – or cobots – are ideal for small and medium enterprises, which have the need for flexible and effective automation that can provide a fast return of investment. The versatility and ease-of-use make cobots an efficient and cost-effective workforce multiplier.

This webinar will focus on how to increase the productivity of your manufacturing facility by incorporating automation into your processes.

Our slate of mini-sessions include:

  • Hear the story from Fusion on their successful integration of cobots and real-time data tracking with their CNC machines
  • Discover how to evaluate overall equipment effectiveness and productivity
  • Learn how cobots can help to address the current manufacturing labor shortage and allow you to continue production during a crisis

If these apply to you, plan to join us on April 24!
