A fully integrated automated assembly line is a wonder to behold, but it’s not for everyone. Full automation is expensive and can be limiting in terms of the variety of products it can handle. Below a certain production threshold, full automation simply doesn’t make sense economically. Fortunately, a variety of affordable, easy-to-use robots are available to help automate individual processes, such as machine tending, dispensing, welding and assembly. In this session, you’ll learn what processes to target with a robot, how to match a robot to the task, and how to integrate a robot into your line.
