Universal Robots recently published an article on their blog with information about how small to mid-sized manufacturers can benefit from automation and that using robotics may be within their reach. Since Northwest Industrial Resource Center works with manufacturers in Northwest PA, we wanted to pass this information along.
Also, check out how SEPCO, located in Erie PA, automated their success last year.
Universal Robots currently has a competition to give away a free collaborative robotic arm to 3 lucky companies. All you have to do is write a narrative of how a manual process in your production could benefit from being automated. Information about the competition can be found at https://winarobot.universal-robots.com/. If you are interested in applying, don’t hesitate to contact your NWIRC Strategic Business Advisor or Michael Griffith, Manufacturing Technology Engineer for assistance with your submission.
