United Robotics at NWTI
October 26, 2018

URI at NWTIZach Dreyer & Kevin Salmon of URI had the opportunity to speak to students at the Northwest Technical Institute's (NWTI) Open House & Manufacturing Day in Springdale, AR on October 26th.

They spoke to students about robotic applications in manufacturing, covering welding & plasma cutting, material handling, machine tending, and dispensing. They also dispelled some fears among students concerning robotics taking jobs from technical trades such as welding. Kevin explained to students "There will always be a need for welders in the workforce because not every application is suited for robotic welding." He also encouraged students to think beyond the welding aspect stating "It's easier to teach a welder how to program robotics, than to teach a robotic programmer how to weld."

Zach had a 3D representation of some of our robotic cell layouts on display; showing students a tool we commonly use to show our customers a virtual illustration of what their cell would look like.

United Robotics at GO CAPS
October 12, 2016

URI with GO CAPSAaron Wright of URI had the opportunity to speak to the students at the Greater Ozarks Centers for Advanced Professional Studies (GO CAPS) in Monett, MO on October 12th.

He discussed various robotic applications in industry, speaking primarily about material handling, machine tending, welding/cutting and dispensing.  He stressed the importance of ancillary equipment such as vision guidance, PLC (controls), and tooling. He also taught the students how to perform cost justification and timely payback studies to satisfy ownership and shareholders. "Once you get past the 'gee-whiz' factor of robotics you can dial in on implementation, production expectations and cost justification of a robotic automation initiative."

ABB's Open House a Great Event
September 15, 2015

ABB Houston Open HouseThe 1st annual ABB Robotics Houston Open House on September 9th was a great success! We had an opportunity to meet with customers, vendors, and fellow integrators.

There were over 180 attendees and the event gave people a chance to see ABB's new 21,000 square foot facility and some of their offerings; such as training, testing, and run-off capabilities with robotic machine tending, material handling, and welding. There were also several free seminars offered as well as product demonstrations.

We look forward to attending next year's event and hope to see you there!
