Manufacturing Growth Lunch and Learn: An Introduction to Cobots & How They Can Fill the Workforce Gap

Thursday, June 27, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm


An Introduction to Cobots & How They Can Fill the Workforce Gap.  Lenexa, KS

The hottest new technology in automation is the collaborative robot. So why are manufacturers everywhere flocking to this new product in a hurry? Come find out at our informative session on collaborative robots – or “cobots” for short - meaning it works WITH and alongside human coworkers. 

We’ll discuss how the technology came about, the different types and classifications of cobots in the market, and why they’re such an efficient and cost-effective workforce multiplier.

Did you know that they are mobile and can be moved anywhere on the plant floor to take on new tasks? It takes just a few moments to reprogram it to a new job and doesn’t require an onsite engineer to maintain them!

Want to learn more and see these robots in person? We are hosting a lunch and learn for area manufacturers on June 27 from noon – 1 p.m. at HTE Technologies in Lenexa, KS. Here, you will get to demo the cobot and ask questions about how these tools could work inside your facility.

As vacant manufacturing positions nationwide reach an all-time high, cobots can help manufacturers solve some of the workforce shortages.

The cost is $15 per person and a meal is included.

Event includes lunch, networking, a presentation, and a question and answer period. 

This event is being held in partnership with MAMTC's partner MEP Center for Missouri, Missouri Enterprise.
