TMA is teaming up with IMEC, FPE Automation, and Universal Robots to present you with this educational robotics event.


Is your company faced with a workforce shortage? Are you having difficulties finding qualified people to work in your factory? Come learn how collaborative robotics can help solve your workforce challenges.

In this show-and-tell workshop, you will learn how collaborative robots (also referred to as “cobots”) can add value to your company, boost productivity, and improve reliability. Cobots are industrial robots designed to work with and among employees without the need for costly safety infrastructure. The Breakfast with the Bots workshop will include demonstrations of cobots, and the opportunity to learn about the many ways cobots can benefit your operation.

Benefits of cobots include:
•        Easy programming – no prior programming experience required
•        Fast Setup – ready for use in hours, not weeks
•        Flexible Deployment – easy to move and reprogram
•        Safe – reduce human injuries as cobots complete dirty and dangerous jobs

For small and mid-sized companies and small-batch production runs, cobots are a more cost-effective automation option than traditional robot programming,

This seminar is designed for plant managers, directors, operations managers, and others in operational leadership roles. Breakfast will be provided.
