Joint vision and robotics workshop for packaging industry
Published: 8 October 2012 - Neil Mead
Cognex and ABB Robotics are pleased to announce a joint workshop taking place in Milton Keynes on 24th October 2012. Hosted at ABB’s UK Robotics office, the event will explore the use of Vision and Advanced Robotic Automation in the packaging industry and will incorporate real world applications as well as expert speakers from Cognex and ABB.
Primarily aimed at the Food, Beverage and Pharmaceutical sectors, a range of break-out workshop sessions will focus on practical solutions for current and future manufacturing challenges. Participants will be able to interact and discuss the use and benefits of Vision and Robotics relevant to their own organisations.
Discover with live demonstrations the new innovative vision solutions for the industry and how it can help you in solving current challenging issues such as: production yield, product quality, packaging integrity, scrap reduction, product traceability, and more.
Regardless of the products being made, packaging affects consumer perception of quality and value. If the wrong item is in a package or a defective product ships, customer satisfaction and brand image are compromised. Find out how Cognex ID can help manufacturers to turn package compliance and traceability into a competitive advantage.
Robotic automation is presenting an increasingly attractive option for today’s companies looking for ways to balance enhanced competitiveness against tightening costs and spiralling overheads. During this seminar guest speakers will touch on the advancements made of the integration of robotic and vision technology and illustrate proven cases studies of applications of picking, packing and palletising within this industry.
• Presentations by end users on vision and robotics application
