Manufacturers have the opportunity to get hands-on with automation when the Universal Robots roadshow hits town later this month.
The Productivity Roadshow is suitable for businesses with limited or no experience with collaborative automation, or those looking to take the next step in their automation journey.
Cobots, commercially viable collaborative robots, are particularly suitable for small and medium-sized businesses that regularly perform tasks such as machine monitoring, quality control or palletizing, all of which can be automated quickly and easily.
Following the introduction of the world’s first cobot in 2008, Universal Robots has installed 50,000 cobots across a wide range of industries: they can be redeployed to various tasks. Each model is supported by a wide selection of end effectors, software, accessories and application kits in the Universal Robots ecosystem. This allows cobots to be used in a wide range of industries and means they can be redeployed to various tasks.
Attendees of the event will be able to test cobot applications, receive advice on automating tasks within their own company and meet the people who are innovating in automation.
“We look forward to arriving in Cambridge and demonstrating the power of cobots to UK manufacturers who want to create a smarter, more efficient and more resilient business,” said Mark Gray, UK and Ireland country manager, Universal Robots. “Our goal is to demonstrate that automation really is for everyone, not just large companies with expert robotics engineers.
“Those who attend the tour will experience how easily automation can integrate into existing operations and empower existing employees, all with minimal training.
“We’re on a mission to make sure businesses of all sizes can reach their full potential and there’s no substitute for visiting tech in person to truly seize the possibilities.”
The Universal Robots team will present the full range of collaborative robots, ranging from the tabletop UR3e to the heavy-duty UR16e. They will also showcase approved partners and their applications, including vision and safety systems, slide and lift kit, and cable management kit.
The event takes place on Thursday, February 24 at the Holiday Inn in Impington and runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Register here. The event is free.
Universal Robots is part of Teradyne Inc and is headquartered in Odense, Denmark, which has offices in the United States, Europe and Asia.
