Centre Director Jonathan Roberts and Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Hub CEO Cori Stewart recently visited the Resources Centre of Excellence in Mackay to discuss how technology can help businesses stay ahead
of global competition.
ARM Hub works with small to to medium-sized businesses to help them embrace robotics and new technologies. By seizing new opportunities in technology, workers will be upskilled, enabling them to perform functions that are otherwise unreachable.
Professor Jonathan Roberts has previously worked with Brisbane-based UAP Company on projects including a machine that could linish steel and also teaming up with Airlie Beach Consolidated Linen Services on a towel sorting robot. Both innovations reduced the manual labour associated with the tasks but not the need to human interaction in the tasks.
“UAP for instance, for every piece of robotic machinery that they put on, they’ve employed at least six new people,” Ms Stewart said. “They’ve got better capability, they’ve been more competitive, they’ve won different jobs.
