Robotics 24/7    RAC2022    The Robotics Applications Conference

The Robotics Applications Conference from Robotics 24/7. Recorded October 5, 2022
To Optimize Warehouses, Add Robots and AI
The movement of parts and finished products traditionally required fixed infrastructure and people to walk daily, push heavy carts, and avoid dangerous forklifts. As global supply chain challenges have demonstrated, companies need to apply robots, artificial intelligence, and modern workflow tools to become more resilient and flexible. This keynote will explain how operators and managers can use the latest automation technologies to protect and grow their bottom lines.
More about this session
Session 1


Goods-to-Person Systems
Keep Workers in the Loop
Contrary to the popular belief that robots will replace people, goods-to-person systems move shelves, bins, or totes to workers. They take advantage of human cognitive abilities and dexterity as well as robotic efficiency – as long as planning systems take the throughput of each into account. This session will tackle the best ways to coordinate robots and people.
Session 2


Truck Unloading: Lift Trucks and the
Next Frontiers for Robots
Robots have steadily climbed in capability. The latest generation of heavy-duty autonomous mobile robots, tuggers, and lift trucks can change how orders are assembled and shipped. New systems promise to make materials handling tasks such as loading and unloading trucks easier for logistics and manufacturing operations. This session will delve into new applications as robots grow in prowess.


Session 3

Pick & Place

Piece Picking Gets Faster With
Robotic Perception
The proliferation of SKUs in e-commerce has long posed a challenge for robot manipulation, but improvements in machine vision and end effectors are enabling increasing productivity. End users don't want to spend a lot of time and effort getting to that point, so suppliers and integrators have devised interfaces and bundles of technology to make picking and placing easier.This session will touch on the latest options for fast, accurate robotic picking.


Session 4

Machine Tending

Machine Tending and
Welding With Cobots
In addition to safer operations than industrial systems, collaborative robots offer flexibility and ease of use to manufacturers of all sizes. Cobots have gotten traction in applications such as machine tending and welding, which require precision and adaptability. This session will discuss how to train robots to augment your workforce and ensure that they deliver an ongoing return on investment – often through a robotics-as-a-service model.
