Remanufacturing and Industry 4.0: Robotics


In the second webinar in our Remanufacturing and Industry 4.0 series, we will tackle the topic of robotics. Industrial robots and collaborative robots (cobots) can be used in a variety of applications in remanufacturing and we are excited to discuss those in this webinar. As we have done in past webinars, we will bring together experts on this topic from various perspectives. Following panelist presentations there will be time for questions from the audience.

Subsequent sessions will address other Industry 4.0 topics including Augmented & Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, and Data Analytics.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn the state-of-the-art and nomenclature for industrial robots and cobots.
  2. Hear the design and application considerations from a leading manufacturer.
  3. See the implementation strategy and actual use cases from a member company.
  4. Hear the principles to apply in order to evaluate your own potential applications.
