Correcting the Fatal Flaws of Designing and Deploying Automation
Originally Recorded November 17, 2022 | 10 - 11 AM ET
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
We will walk through using software for addressing some of the biggest inefficiencies in designing and deploying industrial robotic cells, using several customer examples.
Robotic programming can be a fairly manual process and finding good programmers who specialize in multiple robot OEM programming languages is hard. This translates to either taking on fewer projects due to a lack of specialized skills or losing revenue because you have to bill up to twice as many engineering hours to design a workcell.
Continuously optimizing your cell performance is another time-consuming and expensive part of the process. Average robotic cell lifecycle cost is $350,000, with programming accounting for up to 75% ($262,500 lifecycle cost). Identify and tackle inefficiencies, while keeping your automation flexible for change.
Attend this webinar to see how:
- a line builder saved 82% of programming time on a project;
- a Tier 1 automotive manufacturer reduced cycle time in half;
- a global automotive and industrial supplier achieved almost double throughput.
