Robot demos at a trade show are always impressive. This is the perfect opportunity to see where technology is going. But apart from being spectacular, is your favorite demo productive like a real-life robot should be?
For automatica 2018, our Robotiq demo crew had to present collaborative robot applications that both enable new possibilities for manufacturers AND offer realistic KPIs. If you haven't seen our demos via our Facebook and Linkedin pages, here they are presented by our integration coach Nicholas Francoeur.
