How the technology of robots is bridging the workforce shortage gap
Featuring Myron Moser, CEO, and Kevin Kerr, Robotic System Sales Engineer, Hartfiel Automation
Roaring Economy + Workforce Shortage = Mechanical Employees. The Workforce shortage gap is big and projected to grow even wider over the next 10 years. Manufacturers are increasingly forced to turn to Automation and Robotics, but industry grade robots come with a long list of challenges. Collaborative robots called Cobots are a new demographic of robot that combines the ease of use and safety features that allow it to work hand and hand with humans. These robots are less expensive than traditional robots, and much faster to deploy.
From the origins of the Cobots to the state of the art designs, find out how technology is making integration easier with user-friendly interfaces, open architecture and collaborative features help a company’s bottom line.
