MORRISVILLE, NC—SCHUNK has opened a new workspace for customer collaboration at its U.S. headquarters here.

The CoLab is designed to be a working space for customer technicians and engineers to collaborate with the SCHUNK team and partners on their specific applications. The CoLab will enable automated processes to be tested and adjusted prior to installation at an assembly plant.

“Automating processes increases worker safety, grows efficiency and frees human operator capacity to do more valuable tasks,” says Milton Guerry, president of SCHUNK USA. “Manufacturers, distribution and logistics specialists, agriculture and food service professionals are looking for expertise, and for places to bring their challenges. With our new CoLab workspace, we are looking forward to meeting those needs.”
