ABB seminar provides step-by-step guide on robots

The event will include a hands-on workshop which takes place in ABB's recently refurbished robot training centre.     
A ‘Switch to Robots’ seminar will take place this month that explains how ongoing reductions in the cost and complexity of robotic automation are opening up new opportunities for UK SME manufacturing companies.

Taking place at ABB’s Milton Keynes site, the event will provide a simple step-by-step guide to introducing robot automation to the factory floor.

There will also be a hands-on workshop session in ABB’s training centre that provides delegates with the opportunity to see and use some of the latest robot technology.

The event takes place on Tuesday 20th June 2017.

Says Mike Wilson, general industry sales manager for ABB Robotics in the UK and Ireland: “Misconceptions about the cost, flexibility and complexity of robots are stopping many SME UK manufacturing companies from realising their true potential.

“Our Switch to Robots event has been designed to help businesses to easily identify whether a robot could be beneficial and explain the steps they need to take in specifying and installing the best solution for their requirements.”
