Join us on Wednesday, April 13 at 2 pm ET for FREE webinar on ‘Cobot End-of-Arm Tooling.’

Presented by Manufacturing AUTOMATION and sponsored by OnRobot, the webinar will focus on applications for maximum ROI.


Global manufacturing is in the midst of a very real labour crisis. Companies are turning to collaborative automation to adapt their business operations and build resilience against future threats. The cost and complexity of traditional palletizing robotic systems have prevented small to medium-sized (SME) businesses from embracing automation.


Today, automation is not just for large manufacturers – the latest collaborative automation solutions change all that by breaking down the barriers separating small manufacturers from their larger competitors. But while cobots have become easier to buy and implement, they’re only part of the equation. The robot itself can’t do any work without end-of-arm tooling.

The key components of maximizing automation efforts and gaining the full advantages of cobots or lightweight industrial robots are grippers, sensors, tool changers and other automation peripherals.

Versatile, cost-effective and user-friendly technology allows businesses of almost any size to increase productivity, improve quality and respond more nimbly to changing customer demands.

What you will learn

OnRobot’s Kristian Hulgard will provide answers to the most common questions, including:

  • Which ‘End of Arm Tooling’ (EOAT) to use to optimize your collaborative application
  • How to achieve high-mix low-volume production success
  • How collaborative automation can help with employee safety

Key Takeaway: EOAT enables robots to function with greater speed, strength, safety and precision, accomplishing a wide range of applications while maximizing ROI.
