Online Expo Focused on Cobots for Machine TendingFebruary 15, 2021
Universal Robots (UR) is hosting a virtual expo (free to attend) February 23-24, focused on automating machine-tending tasks with collaborative robots (cobots). The two-day event will provide insights on deploying cobots to tend press brakes, injection molding machines, 3D printers and the like. Attendees will witness live demos, keynotes and interactive booth sessions with UR and its exhibiting partners.
While more than half of U.S. manufacturers say they are redesigning their workforce architecture around automation, with machine tending as one of the most sought-after applications to automate, questions arise: What tasks should you automate first? How do you make the cobot interface with the machine? Do you need a dedicated cell? Can you use the cobot on multiple machines? What about safety?
“Our Machine Tending Expo will help manufacturers address all of these questions,” says Joe Campbell, UR senior manager of applications development. “Attendees will be able to visit virtual booths featuring a range of turnkey solutions and application kits for easy deployment. In live demos and educational keynotes, they will learn all of the ins and outs of machine tending with UR cobots.”
