Robotics are more mainstream than ever, and manufacturers must use them to their advantage to keep ahead of the competition.

Successful shops strive to find ways to lower cost and improve quality and satisfaction, such as automating repetitious tasks and leveraging processes already in place.

And, while most shops may not know it, robotic capabilities have been increasing, while the cost of them and their complexity has been decreasing.

Any manufacturer who is interested in staying in business needs to investigate how robotics can help them stay competitive. The Robotics on the Move – Partnership in Productivity Tour offers a way to do that.

The mobile tour travels across North America to reach manufacturing facilities, schools and universities.

It is designed to connect with manufacturers and students alike, and it encompasses demonstrations and interactive activities, focusing on robotics technology and trends.

Launched by AB Robotics, Robotics on the Move shows manufacturers ways to use robotics to their fullest potential to increase competitiveness.

Visitors learn how other manufacturers have used robotics, how robotics are a key part of lean manufacturing, how implementing robotics can improve safety, and how robotics can be a cost-effective way to solve manufacturing challenges.

The mobile exhibit houses an interactive theater and two live robot demonstrations. It is equipped with detailed robot product information, engages visitors and clarifies myths about robots.

With two fully functioning robots onboard, this once-ina- lifetime opportunity allows shops to get upclose and personal with robots that are normally hidden inside facilities.
