Event: Cobots in Australian Manufacturing Webinar

WHEN: 29 Aug


DATE CHANGE – This event has been moved from 25th July to 29th August.

Weld Australia’s Advanced Manufacturing Industry Network will host a free webinar in conjunction with the Australian Cobotic Centre on Tuesday 29 August. The webinar will delve into topics like how cobots work, the benefits they can deliver, how to train staff in their use, and integration of cobots throughout the Australian manufacturing industry.

The Australian Cobotics Centre is a collaboration between researchers and industry, funded by the Australian Research Council. The Centre aims to increase the use of collaborative robots (‘cobots) in manufacturing.

A cobot is a robot that work with people in a shared workspace. Although the use of robots of fully automated production is well known within manufacturing, cobots remain relatively underused, despite the benefits they bring, especially for small businesses (who will win on process innovation and lower costs), manufacturing workers (whose jobs will become safer and higher-skilled), and the economy (through the growth of jobs and exports).
