The event, which takes place at ABB’s Milton Keynes site on 28 November, will provide a simple step-by-step guide to introducing robot automation to the factory floor.

The seminar also provides a step-by-step guide to the key issues around specifying, installing and operating a robot, including how to assess what processes can be automated and how to develop the right solution for your needs.

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 to your financial director. There will also be a hands-on workshop session in ABB’s training centre.

Explains Mike Wilson, general industry sales manager for ABB Robotics in the UK and Ireland: “Misconceptions about the cost, flexibility and complexity of robots are stopping many small to medium UK manufacturing companies from realising their true potential.

“Our Switch to Robots event has been designed to help businesses to easily identify whether a robot could be beneficial and explain the steps they need to take in specifying and installing the best solution for their requirements.”
