Yes, robots are cool, but that may not be enough to justify, buy and apply one or more to your industrial processes. Which applications benefit from a robot? When should a robot be applied? Why? Robotic system integrators share their expertise to help you consider what applications could benefit from one or more robots.

The March 12, 1 p.m. central time webcast, “Robotic applications: What robots should and shouldn’t be doing,” will:

  • Review related Control Engineering and Plant Engineering robotic research results and advice.
  • Identify new robotic applications and the enabling robotic advances.
  • Learn how to avoid the gee-whiz effect when deciding if new robotic capabilities are right for your applications.
  • Receive tips and tricks about robot and robotic system applications.

Expert speakers for the webcast are Evan Gonnerman, controls engineer, and Ryan Wasmund, sales and marketing director, Concept Systems Inc., a system integrator with industrial robotic expertise.

After March 12, the webcast will be available in the webcast archive for a year.

Mark T. Hoske is content manager, Control Engineering, CFE Media, mhoske@cfemedia.com.
