In this webinar, you’ll learn how to achieve safe working practices by overcoming cultures of inadequately addressed risks.
On Demand Today’s body-in-white assembly lines must be more flexible than ever before. Gone are the days when body-in-white lines turned out the same model for months. Now, these lines are expected to run multiple models daily. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to make body-in-white lines more flexible.
On Demand Faced with labor and ergonomic issues, manufacturers are increasingly turning to automation to address their most prevalent challenges. In this webinar, Universal Robots will partner with screwdriving solution provider Robotiq to talk about how to automate a screwdriving cell with collaborative robots. With adaptability to a wide range of screwdriving applications, this solution can solve your labor issues while providing fast ROI.
On Demand Lean Six Sigma has been driving continuous improvement efforts for decades, but its shortcomings have become apparent. Data gathering is labor-intensive and only able to capture small sample sizes. Now it is possible to capture data over extended periods and multiple locations at a fraction of the cost of old manual methods.
Robots are less expensive and easier to use than ever. The technology is well within the reach of even small and midsized manufacturers. Tune into this exclusive panel discussion featuring executives from four of the nation’s top suppliers of robotic technology: ATI Industrial Automation, Epson Robots, FANUC America and Universal Robots.
In most assemblies that are joined with threaded fasteners, the cost of the fasteners is not as important as the cost of installing them. That makes choosing the right fastening tool of paramount importance. Become an informed consumer! Tune into this exclusive panel discussion featuring executives from four of the nation’s top suppliers of fastening tools: ASG, DEPRAG, Desoutter and Panasonic.
