Next month, Universal Robots will again host the largest virtual collaborative robot exhibition in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Collaborate APAC-Cobot Expo 2021, to be held on November 9 and 10, will feature an informative panel discussion covering a broad range of topics relating to human-robot collaboration.
Universal Robots President Kim Povlsen will deliver his first keynote in Asia Pacific since being appointed to the position earlier this year. He will be joined by Regional Director for Asia Pacific James McKew to delve into the topic of redefining automation. The session will be facilitated by Australia New Zealand’s Senior Technical Support Specialist, Ian Choo.
“Last year’s expo, WeAreCobots, featured 15 insightful keynote sessions, 15 exhibitors and daily live product and application demonstrations,” says McKew.
“Due to popular demand, we are back for another round in 2021, and this time we go deeper into detail about how cobots are implemented in end of line automation.”
The expo is geared towards manufacturers and potential users of robotics, ecosystem partners as well as system integrators.
It is designed to evoke real-world conversation around the future of automation – both regionally and internationally.
Winds of change
“This year our message is clear: automation is about collaboration and automation is empowering change across the globe. Both locally and internationally, the winds of change are upon us and those who aren’t paying attention are going to be left behind.”
Attendees will discover new concepts and approaches to automation involving human-robot collaboration. They will also take a deep dive on successful cobot deployments and exchange ideas with industry automation colleagues and Universal Robots’ cobot experts over live chats.
The panel discussion will focus on:
Learning about the main challenges facing the manufacturing industry in our region and elsewhere.
Understanding Universal Robots' approach to engineering to drive innovation and customer success.
Knowing why the approach of a collaborative platform is key to the future of automation.
You can choose from 12 keynote sessions over the two-day period.
The expo will be available on-demand until December 31, this year.
