Manufacturers’ Guide to Robotics

This guide serves as an introduction to the most common types of robots and robot accessories on the market. It also presents initial steps to help you understand how robotics can add value in your organization. Robotics have traditionally been thought of as a singularly focused and costly system exclusive to large manufacturers with low mix/high volume production. Recent technology advances in sensors, software, vision systems, and more are shifting that paradigm and making robotics implementation accessible and feasible for even the smallest manufacturers.
