Free Webinar: Technologies Enabling New Applications for Industrial Robotics

Join us Wednesday, December 2, 2020, at 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. (U.S. Central Time)

Host: Paul Evans 

What robots and automation could accomplish 20 years ago is vastly different from what can be accomplished today. Join us as SwRI's Paul Evans shares our team's experience with technologies enabling new applications for Industrial Robotics. Industrial robots, both stationary and mobile, have been used in manufacturing applications for decades and are most often employed based on requirements for dedicated and repetitive manufacturing operations. Industrial robot capabilities have continued to advance in areas such as payload, accuracy, and speed. Looking to the near-future, the use of robots must operate in dynamic environments for high-mix low-volume production. A variety of affordable technologies have emerged and are bridging the gap between the traditional use of industrial robotics and the future where robots react to consumer-driven customized product demands. This presentation is intended to be informational in nature and will present applied technology development addressing historical limitations in the use of automation for complex industrial tasks. Example projects will showcase how SwRI is working diligently to give robots greater intelligence, more flexibility, and the ability to work collaboratively with humans.
