Summary

This past spring, COVID-19 drove many global manufacturers to a temporary halt. Now, as manufacturers have restarted 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.

Learning objectives:

  • Basics of collaborative robots
  • Understand the ongoing labor issues after COVID-19
  • Explore real-world examples of how cobots are helping deliver social distancing on the factory floor
  • Discuss reshoring and how cobots can help with incremental automation
  • Discover the role cobots can play in round-the-clock shiftwork to meet tighter delivery schedules
