Beer, Brats and Cobots: Automating your machining centers with collaborative robots

June 26, 2019 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

If you’ve ever considered automating the loading and unloading of your machining or turning centers — this free event is for you!  Universal-Robots will present the business case for automation and how to calculate your return on investment. Come explore the potential of implementing a Cobot based machine tending system to address some of the challenges machine shops face today– and in the future.

Some of the questions that will be answered:

  • How can Cobots help address labor inefficiencies and the issue of idle spindle time?
  • How much does a Cobot-based system cost and what is a typical ROI?
  • What is the difference between a traditional industrial robot and a collaborative robot?
  • Is it difficult to program, troubleshoot and repurpose the system for other jobs?
  • Are Cobots safe and what is required to protect their human coworker?
  • What makes up a Cobot based machine tending solution?
  • Can the system be integrated into my machining center?

Beer, brats and other snacks will be provided.

Who Should Attend? Shop Owners, Operations Managers, Manufacturing Engineers, Production Managers
