Join a 60-minute webinar, “How How Cobots Can be Leveraged in the Covid-19 Age” with live Q&A on Tuesday, June 30 at 11:00 AM EDT / 8:00 AM PDT.
In just a short three months, COVID-19 has driven global manufacturing into a temporary halt. Now, as manufacturers look to restart operations, leaders struggle to create the “new normal.” Industry experts cite automation and technology as two key factors in helping companies succeed. Leading the automation pack are collaborative robots or “cobots” – robots that are safe, easy to program and cost-effective.
Those attending this webinar will learn:
Basics of collaborative robots
Ongoing labor issues after COVID-19
Real-world examples of how cobots are helping deliver social distancing on the factory floor
Reshoring – how cobots can help with incremental automation
The role cobots can play in round-the-clock shiftwork to meet tighter delivery schedules
