REGISTER –  Click Here

Learn how Cobots are flipping the script for local manufacturers – get a hands-on demonstration – watch (and program) 2 Cobots to perform some common tasks. No sales pitch, just the facts. Hear from MEP leadership and Oregon State University robot experts about:

  • How Cobots can be used versatilely in your business
  • How Lean Robotics is now possible, providing fast payoffs
  • How Cobots differ from your typical industrial equipment

Cobots on-site free up your skilled workers for the tasks that people do best and leave the dirty, dangerous, and dull work to the robots. The MEP National Network’s mission is to help your company achieve occupational excellence. Join us for a fast-paced, informative and provocative discussion about how Cobots are helping small manufacturers automate efficiently today.
