Small UK food and drink manufacturers can discover why investing in robots needn’t be difficult at a seminar and workshop being organised by ABB Robotics later this month.

The Switch to Robots seminar, taking place at ABB’s Milton Keynes site on Tuesday November 28, will provide a step-by-step guide to introducing robot automation to the factory floor.

It will cover the key issues around specifying, installing and operating a robot, including how to assess which processes can be automated.

Other topics covered will include how to calculate the potential return on investment that can be achieved in different types of applications and how to make the case for an investment.

Latest robot technology

There will also be a hands-on workshop session, providing the opportunity to see and use some of the latest robot technology, including ABB’s RobotStudio offline programming software. This is said to help reduce the time and cost of setting up a robot system.

“Misconceptions about the cost, flexibility and complexity of robots are stopping many small to medium-sized UK manufacturing companies from realising their true potential,” ​says Mike Wilson, ABB Robotics’ industry sales manager.

“Our Switch to Robots event has been designed to help businesses to easily identify whether a robot could be beneficial.”
