Motion Control Meets Collaborative Robots
Join us for a Webinar on June 27, 2018 at 2 PM EDT
For years, robotics were kept segregated from personnel to prevent injury. The work envelope of the robot was off-limits to human operators while the device was powered up. The development of more sophisticated controls and safety technology have led to the emergence of collaborative robots - robots that can safely interact with human operators, allowing asset owners to automate more tasks and increase throughput while safeguarding both worker health and product quality. In this webinar, we will review both how motion control enables collaborative robots and how collaborative robots can be integrated with motion systems to yield enhanced performance and throughput.
All MCMA webinars are free educational resources for you
