Practical industrial robotics

Current industrial robotics topics of interest include what applications benefit from robotics (justification and return on investment), what kind of robot to use, should a collaborative robot be considered, at what point do robots need remote monitoring and analytics as opposed to a maintenance schedule, and when should robots be leased or purchased new or refurbished or used?



Learning objectives

  • Re-examine when to use industrial robotics, including new or used
  • Learn criteria for determining robot type, including collaborative robots, to fit various applications
  • Consider robot maintenance: Schedule or predictive analytics?
  • Apply lessons learned about robotic applications.
