Industrial robots are on the brink of revolutionizing the manufacturing industry. Advances in technology, including robotics, Big Data, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are coming together to improve plant floor production. Now more than ever, we are realizing the benefits of having industrial robots working hand-in-hand with humans. This session will cover topics including:

  • How industrial robotics are being employed today
  • How collaborative robots can help improve your operation
  • What’s on the horizon, as recent studies have predicted the worldwide spending on robotics will reach $67 billion by 2025, with manufacturing and logistics robots sales expected to reach $31 billion this year (2020).
