Location: 209A

Date: Tuesday, February 5

Time: 3:15pm - 4:00pm

Track: Chief Robotics Officer (CRO) Summit

This session will focus on how collaborative robots are revolutionizing manufacturing. The discussion will include key considerations that manufactures should take when deciding if a collaborative robot is the right solution for their operation. Topics will compare collaborative applications using robot safety scanners to actual power and force limiting robots, application discussions, and real-world examples. In addition, the session will include a discussion on the importance of partnering with an integrator that knows your business and the best way to select an integrator for a collaborative robot system. How robots and automation are helping companies face the overall skills gap and labor shortage in general/partnerships with local schools that train workers to manage automation systems will be addressed, as well.
