Collaborative-Capable Robots: The Future is Now for Automated Welding
February 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
For years, traditional industrial welding automation has helped large companies address labor shortages, variable cost overruns, difficult production targets and quality issues. Without those large capital budgets, however, automation had previously been out of reach for small to mid-size manufacturers. But now, flexible, easy-to-program and quick-to-deploy collaborative robots are changing the landscape of welding automation… all for a fraction of the cost of traditional industrial robots.
This 60-minute webinar will cover:
- The history of traditional welding automation
- A welding market review from a robot perspective
- Benefits of cobotic welding automation
- Ideal profile of companies best suited for cobot welding automation
