Manufacturers working with machined parts are increasingly turning to new classes of small-footprint, lightweight, collaborative robots to load and unload their machines. Cobots from Universal Robots are ideally suited to automate press brakes, CNC, injection molding, and more machining processes. Where should manufacturers look to start improving productivity and quality around their shop?

Join Justin Griffin, Regional Segment Manager, Machine Tending from Universal Robots, to explore the business benefits that accompany new collaborative technologies in machine tending automation. He will show how recent innovations in cobot installation, pre-integrated peripherals, and quick redeployment strategies, are increasing uptime and overall productivity in machining.

Regional Segment Manager - Machine Tending
Universal Robots

Justin Griffin has been with Universal Robots for over six years and is currently the Machine Tending Segment Manager for the United States and Canada. Prior to joining the company, he worked for a robotics integrator and custom machine builder. This experience would prove to influence his early years in Regional Sales at Universal Robots, where he developed and worked with a diverse network of solutions providers throughout his Mid-Atlantic region. These networks would achieve outstanding results, deploying north of 1,000 robots during his tenure in the territory. In his new job role, Justin focuses on enabling end users and solution providers with new and advanced solutions for robotic automation of their machine tools. Some examples include automatic work holding, connectivity packages/interfaces to machine controllers, or intelligent software that autonomously manage tool wear throughout their machining processes.
