Flesh and Machine are Teaming Up at ICRW 2016

Feb 10, 2016

The International Collaborative Robots Workshop in Boston, Massachusetts is a two-day event that provides an inside look at the next-generation robots. The collaborative robot series from all manufacturers seem to be unstoppable as they are bringing huge transformations to the robotic industry. Collaborative robots do not require any safety barriers or fencing and include advancements in sensors, software, and EOATs.


Come one, come all, to the fore­front of a dynam­ic and rev­o­lu­tion­ary robot­ic era! 

On May 2 and 3rd, 2016, there will be an Inter­na­tion­al Col­lab­o­ra­tive Robots Work­shop in Boston, Mass­a­chu­setts. This two-day event will give the most up-to-date infor­ma­tion about the new kid on the block, col­lab­o­ra­tive robots, also known as cobots!

These next-gen­er­a­tion robots take advan­tage of both human and machine strength and are able to work with or along­side peo­ple to expand human capabilities. 

By def­i­n­i­tion, col­lab­o­ra­tion is The action of work­ing with some­one to pro­duce or cre­ate some­thing.” This is is the exact pur­pose of col­lab­o­ra­tive robots; no longer will there be a need for a divid­ed work­place between peo­ple and robots. Flesh and col­lab­o­ra­tive machine can now safe­ly and effec­tive­ly work togeth­er in an uncaged envi­ron­ment. It is awe­some to see man and machine team up for a faster, safer and more effec­tive workplace!

The cobot move­ment seems to be unstop­pable as they are quick­ly trans­form­ing the robot­ic indus­try with huge advance­ments in their sen­sors, soft­ware, and EOATs that are con­stant­ly increas­ing capa­bil­i­ties and appli­ca­tions. For these rea­sons, col­lab­o­ra­tive robots seem to be one of the biggest ROIs to come. They have huge eco­nom­ic ben­e­fits to firms by eas­ing dif­fi­cult human tasks while also enabling work­ers to focus and bring the com­pa­ny their 100%, undi­vid­ed, indi­vid­ual skill set.

Fanuc is one of the first to dive into this new col­lab­o­ra­tive robot­ic tech­nol­o­gy with the pro­duc­tion of their heavy lift­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive robot. The CR35iA has the abil­i­ty to lift up to 35kg, mak­ing it the strongest col­lab­o­ra­tive robot, thus far, in the industry!

For all these rea­sons, this will be a work­shop you don’t want to miss! You will wit­ness the lat­est and great­est col­lab­o­ra­tive robot tech­nol­o­gy from lead­ers who are on the cut­ting edge of this excit­ing new tech­nol­o­gy. Real-life expe­ri­ences will be shared from cur­rent cobot users, new ideas and mar­ket strate­gies will be shown through these tech­no­log­i­cal advances, and you will be able to expe­ri­ence it all, first hand! Also fea­tured will be numer­ous pre­sen­ta­tions on appli­ca­tions, safe­ty impli­ca­tions, and human impacts.

Going to events like these is a great way to con­nect to a robot­ic com­mu­ni­ty and meet with oth­er peo­ple in the indus­try who share your curios­i­ty, pas­sion, and inter­est. So cheers to col­lab­o­ra­tion and hap­py trails to Massachusetts!
