Collaborative robotics play a key role in the transformation of manufacturing automation and can provide some of the productivity needed to meet variable demand. Faced with high labor costs and a low inventory of skilled workers, finding ways to save human interaction for things robots can't do is critical.

Topics covered include:
  • Challenges with incorporating cobots into manufacturing operations´╗┐
  • Impacts for current manufacturing practices, including sterilization and cleaning
  • Standards, including risk assessments, to learn before implementing a collaborative robot installation
  • Best practices for working closely with collaborative robots
