ABB Robotics will be running the latest in its popular ‘Switch to Robots’ seminar and workshop events, explaining the benefits that robotic automation can bring for SME companies and how to find, implement and run the best robotic solution.

Taking place at ABB Milton Keynes site on March 19, the event will provide a simple step-by-step guide to introducing robot automation to the factory floor.

Starting with the question ‘How do you know if you need a robot?’ the seminar will begin by outlining the issues that need to be addressed when assessing whether installing a robot could be beneficial.

This will include advice on how to look for gaps in your current processes and how to identify your current performance in areas such as productivity, health and safety, quality and resource utilisation.

It will also explain how the information gathered can help to formulate an automation strategy which can be used to decide which processes present the best opportunities for robotic automation.

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

“Our seminar and workshop has been designed to help businesses determine if a robot could be beneficial and the steps to take in specifying and installing the best solution for their requirements.”
