A regional Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM) event
in partnership with LTU Collaboratory and Automation Alley
Automation and Robotics technology have come a long way.
Once used primarily for high volume applications, robots are being used collaboratively to aid human workers and automation techniques are more prevalent than ever in low volume, high variable product manufacturing operations as a way to help small manufacturers remain globally competitive.
This session shares how companies are applying these new generation tools to improve the delivery of durable goods quicker and at better margins. The session will also feature representatives from the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM), the nation’s leading manufacturing institute focusing on the development, demonstration and facilitation of early adoption of robotic solutions in an effort to grow the national manufacturing ecosystem.
Learn how these advanced robotics manufacturing technologies can present both opportunities for your company’s growth and sustainability. Information on LTU’s new ScaleUp for Success Program designed to help small manufacturers and hardware innovators grow their business will also be made available.
