Brought to you by Universal Robots

The final episode of the Cobots in Canada webinar series for 2021, sponsored by Universal Robots, is now available on-demand.

Canada’s manufacturing community has many unique challenges. As an export nation, we have to be what our customers need: from high and medium volumes to high mix and low volumes.

We have to be innovative and flexible in our approaches to manufacturing, costing, quality and delivery. Capital investment in automation is a critical conversation, especially post-COVID, where attracting, securing and retaining skilled personnel is one of Canada’s looming labour challenges.

“Cobots” are the fastest growing segment in automation, and considering their lower cost and quicker deployment compared to traditional robots, it’s easy to understand why.

The final episode of the Cobots in Canada webinar series can now be accessed on demand. Just register to watch for free!


What you’ll learn:

  • What is collaborative automation and why should manufacturers consider it?
  • How to plan for success in collaborative robots
  • Use cases: Who is doing what with cobots in Canada?
  • The ROI of using cobots to automate repetitive tasks: quality, cost savings and bottom line results.
