The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) has announced two conferences that provide classroom training on topics pertinent to robot safety. Suppliers of robots and safety equipment also will present tabletop displays. The spring North American Robot Safety Conference in Toronto, Canada (March 24-26), cosponsored by RIA and the Canadian Standards Association, will include workshops of special concern in Canada. The fall event, RIA’s National Robot Safety Conference (Ypsilanti/Detroit. MI) will be held October 18-21, 2004.

MIG Welding Robots—The Implementation of Global Robot Weld Process Controls is the name of a practical two-day workshop for managers, engineers, designers, and technicians involved in welding technology, scheduled for May 12-13, 2004, in Fort Collins, CO. Developed and presented by Ed Craig, a 35-year veteran of weld process controls and author of books on the topic, the workshop is billed as offering "the opportunity to consistently attain less than 1% robot weld rework, increase robot weld productivity, minimize robot downtime, and reduce corporate weld-liability concerns."
