Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) and Innovative Manufacturers’ Center (IMC) will host an upcoming demonstration, presented by The Proud Company, as an introduction to a new class of inexpensive, easy to deploy robots that are changing how manufacturers think about automation. Gone are the days of massive capital expenditures on expensive, fixed automation. By leveraging robots to perform mundane, highly repetitive tasks, innovative manufacturers are becoming agile and gaining a distinct competitive advantage. Join us to see a robot in action, explore this game-changing technology, and participate in the conversation about how adopting this kind of technology can positively affect your bottom line. The program is free of charge and will be held on October 12 from 10:00am – 12noon at the Best Western Inn & Conference Center, 82 North Park Place in DuBois.
