This presentation is geared for CNC machine shop owners and managers to see not only the true economic benefits of robotic automation but how their production team benefits.  It has been proven that adding robotics to the shop floor has increased retention of key employees and attracts the best talent to work for these production facilities.  We will cover today’s challenges, such as COVID-19, JIT manufacturing, war on talent, reshoring, and large variations in production demands, that CNC machine shops are facing today and how they are combatting it.

Fusion OEM and RoboJob NV will also address the personal benefits to machine-tending workers, highlighting research on the reduction of workplace stress resulting from adoption of automation to complete the dull, dirty and dangerous tasks.

This event is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Purdue MEP, The Center for Industrial Research and Service at Iowa State University (CIRAS), and the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC).
