Lunch & Learn – Using Innovation to Solve Workforce Woes

June 23, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

| $10


Executives of today’s small manufacturers most often rank employee recruitment and retention as their number one concern. Employee turnover due to workload, fatigue and injury can cost a small company tens, or even hundreds, of thousands of dollars each year. But a new and rapidly growing technology is changing all that.

Cobots, or collaborative robots, are inexpensive, lightweight and flexible industrial robots that safely work alongside employees to handle difficult and dangerous activities. Join SCMEP and Universal Robots’ Travis Langford for a Lunch-and-Learn packed with practical real-world examples of how cobots are helping small manufacturers solve a very difficult workforce problem. Easy to install, easy to program, and safe to operate without guarding, the ROI for cobots is often very attractive to small companies needing a competitive edge. With over 42,000 cobots installed in over 2,000 locations around the world, Universal Robots is the best source for this critical information.
