For almost any size manufacturer, global competition is driving the need to increase output, improve quality, and reduce costs. But many small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) believe their volumes are too small or processes too dynamic to be effectively automated, or that they just can't afford robotics. Fortunately, market dynamics and new technologies are finally changing the automation equation in favor of SMEs. This session will detail how manufacturers of all sizes and capabilities can realize a fast return on investment on their cobots. Through detailed breakdowns and case studies, the talk will lay out the business case for cobots, preparing attendees for what to consider before, during, and after deployment.
