A large percentage of small-to-medium manufacturers (SMMs) have missed out on the many benefits of robotic industrial automation such as increased productivity, improved quality and enhanced competitiveness. Rapid change, however, is underway. Both traditional industrial robotics companies, as well as a number of new vendors, are providing products and services specifically designed satisfy the requirements and support the culture of this sizable and underserved market. This is especially true for collaborative robots, systems largely designed to support the specialized requirements of small-to-medium manufacturers. In this Collaborative Robotics Week session, attendees will learn about new collaborative robotics products and services that support small-to-medium manufacturers.
Real world case studies will be presented to illustrate salient points. Topics covered include:
- SMMs and Collaborative Robotics
- Application Specific Systems
- Flexible Automation
- Rapid Deployment and Simplified Programming
