Topic: Collaborative Robots
Speaker: Dylan Shanahan, Universal Robots
Industry 4.0 and Collaborative Robots,
or CoBots, are changing the landscape of manufacturing floors around the world.
Universal Robot’s Danish robots are democratizing robotics and bringing
manufacturing back to the US. Designed to be used alongside human workers,
these robots are used without the need of specialized guarding that traditional
robots require. This helps to shrink the overall space a robotic cell needs,
allows the robot to be moved to different locations to perform different tasks,
and overall allows a company to be flexible in their deployment of robotics.
CoBots from Universal Robots are also designed for programming and use by
non-programmers, allowing users to easily and effectively utilize robotic
functions in their everyday operations.
This talk will briefly describe Collaborative
Robots as market disruptors as well as how the robotics industry is adapting to
this technology. This talk will also describe the changes in technology that
allow for the use of Collaborative Robotics, how they’re being used today, and
will involve a technical demo showcasing the Universal Robots easy programming
and safety functions. After a brief Q&A, the attendees will then be able to
program and interact with the robot.
