"By offering these complementary technical webinars we hope to remove some of
the potential barriers to increasing robot adoption," states Mark Noschang,
Adept's North American Applications Engineering Manager. "With rising labor
costs, greater product complexity and consumer demands for mass customization,
manufacturers in all industry segments are searching for alternatives to hard
automation and offshore hand assembly. The goal of each of these webinars is
to not only instruct potential users on how to design proper robotic
applications, but also demonstrate how to avoid some of the common mistakes
associated with them. Using these techniques, implementers will be able to
maximize throughput and their return on investment."
