Overview

An introduction of automation and the world of Cobots into our industry, this conference will give a brief history and justification for integrating “Cobots” in everyday tasks, creating a safe environment for the worker while increasing productivity, reliability, and quality, at an overall lower cost. By the end of the conference, attendees will better understand what is required to justify a fully automated station for their particular job requirement. They can also walk away with the basic knowledge required to discuss their needs with an industry expert to reach the next level in automated productivity for their company.
