A dedicated robotics training centre has opened in Wales with the aim of lowering the automation barrier for companies wishing to deploy cobots.
The Universal Robots facility, located in Applied Automation’s headquarters in Cardiff, is said to be the first of its kind in Wales and will provide user-friendly, cost-effective and easy-to-use automation solutions.
Certified trainers will deliver hands-on modules covering a range of core and advanced cobot programming skills. Universal Robots said the cobots are designed to be lightweight and space-saving, so are suitable for production lines of any size. The technology can also be redeployed quickly to other areas, allowing businesses the flexibility needed to react to market demands.
Jessica Watts, cobot application sales manager at Applied Automation, said: “We believe that quality training is essential when it comes to getting your cobots to perform at their full potential. With our extensive learning platform, we can guarantee visitors will walk away with a great understanding of the specific opportunities for automation in their business.”
