Tracks and Sessions
Collaborative Robotics Training Days tracks, and their attendant sessions, are specifically designed to provide attendees with the information, advice, and case studies they need to evaluate, with a critical and informed eye, the business and technical case for collaborative robotics systems. The most impactful collaborative systems and supporting technologies will be examined, as will key industrial applications enabled by collaborative robots. Other Collaborative Robotics Training Days sessions will focus on detailed case studies of collaborative systems in industry specific use.
Collaborative Robotics Training Days tracks and sessions are focused on those topics most critical for robotics and automation professionals. They include:
Systems and Platforms
- Selection Criteria for Collaborative Robotics Systems
- 3D Printing as a Collaborative Robotics Enabler
- High-Speed Bin Picking and Pick-and-Place Applications Using Collaborative Robots
- Palletizing and Depalletizing Using Collaborative Robots
- Welding and Metal Fabrication Using Collaborative Robotics Systems
- Collaborative Robots for Food Manufacturing
- Collaborative Robotics: An Enabler for Small-to-Medium Manufacturers
As the relationship between people and robots continues to evolve, the importance of intelligent motion control position, accuracy, and reliability becomes a critical part of cobot design.
This presentation will focus on servo actuators that function as end effectors, often mounted on transport systems such as robotics arms and gantries. These devices include linear actuators, force feedback actuators, voice coils, and more. Understanding their capabilities and properties will help ensure that your next application delivers the goods without dropping the ball!
We will also cover the role of ultra-precise motion control and miniaturization.You'll learn about new technology offerings, including an ultra-compact PCB-mountable high-performance motion controller that is gaining popularity with robotic design engineers.
Collaborative robots make up the fastest-growing segment of the robotics industry, thanks to their affordability and fast deployment compared to traditional robots. But not all manufacturing processes have the same outlook for cobot automation, and not all cobot suppliers are created equal.
In this webinar, Joe Campbell, Head of Strategic Marketing from Universal Robots, will explore the unique technologies in collaborative robots that open new automation possibilities for manufacturing businesses. By connecting common manufacturing challenges to features of cobots designed to solve them.
The collaborative robotics segment is growing rapidly as new suppliers, technologies, and investors enter the market. As is common with other hot technology sectors, this has resulted in a great deal of “noise” in the robotics community, as well as in the business and investment press. This results in increased risk, missed opportunities, and confusion among all members of the collaborative robotics value chain. The problem is especially acute during the selection process for collaborative robotics systems.
This collaborative Robotics Systems session will address a number of important issues related to the selection of cobot solutions including collaborative robotics value drivers, critical enabling technologies, and key provider differentiators. A number of representative collaborative robotics products (and companies) will also be highlighted, along with the features and capabilities that distinguish them.
Palletizing and depalletizing are two of the most common processes in material handling. As such, the use of robotics for palletizing applications continues to be one of the fastest growing segments in robotics. Collaborative robotics systems, too, have proven to very adept for palletizing and depalletizing work, protecting workers from repetitive motion injuries and reducing costs in the process.
In this Collaborative Robotics Training Days session, the latest collaborative robotics solutions for palletizing and depalletizing applications, will be reviewed. Case studies where cobots are used to make palletizing and depalletizing operations simpler and more efficient will be used to highlight recent trends.
