Collaborative Robot Tasks: Light Years Beyond Pick & Place

Originally Recorded January 11, 2022 | 2 PM - 3 PM ET

Watch this Webinar


When collaborative robots exploded onto the industrial manufacturing scene nearly 15 years ago, they were mainly used for simple pick and place operations. But with collaborative robots being so flexible and easy to program, cobots are now automating dull, dirty and dangerous tasks in nearly every area of manufacturing, from welding to palletizing to polishing.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the latest and most exciting applications that cobots are tackling, including AI, teleoperation, cloud-based/cell phone cobot programming, and tasks that can be done by combining a cobot mounted to a mobile robot. If you’re looking to automate in 2022 but aren’t sure a collaborative robot can handle the task at hand, this webinar is for you!

Attendees Will Learn:

  • Basic cobot technology and what makes them so flexible and easy to program
  • The UR+ ecosystem and value of this certification program
  • Cloud-based cobot programming
