With product lifecycles getting shorter, the need for flexible automation is becoming more important. As a result, manufacturers worldwide are increasingly investing in robotics. According to the International Federation of Robotics, the global stock of industrial robots will grow from 1,828,000 units in 2016 to 3,053,000 units in 2020. This represents an average annual growth rate of 14 percent. Today’s robots faster, more precise, and easier to use than ever, and their connectivity will play a key role in today’s increasingly digital manufacturing environments. Are you ready for the robot revolution? Whether you are new to robotics or have already invested in the technology, this workshop will help you get the most from robots.
