Manufacturing AUTOMATION

First Cobots in Canada webinar now available on demand

Brought to you by Universal Robots

Join us for a cross-Canada webinar series: Cobots in Canada sponsored by Universal Robots, where we will showcase use cases, distributors, integrators and end users of collaborative robots.

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 first Cobots in Canada webinar on Wednesday, August 25 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET is tailored to audiences in Western Canada, but everyone is welcome to attend.

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.
