Universal Robots is hosting a three-day online conference about collaborative robots next week.

Attendees can visit “booths” featuring cobot applications such as machine tending, packaging and palletizing, product inspection, assembly, welding, dispensing and finishing.

Joining this lineup is ActiNav, the world’s first autonomous bin picking kit for machine tending launched by Universal Robots this spring.

Each application booth will be staffed with automation experts to engage with attendees.

The agenda also has presentations on cobot maintenance and programming and the ways cobots are being deployed to address the COVID-19 crisis, including area disinfection, the manufacturing of test kits, face shields and ventilators, and in the handling of COVID-19 tests, protecting hospital staff from exposure.

UR+ partners will also be on site, showcasing applications that work with UR’s collaborative robots.

The free-to-attend Cobot Expo is July 28-30, and makes a good complement to Manufacturing AUTOMATION’s Automate to Innovate Virtual Summit, happening July 29 at 1 pm ET.
