Event description

Description

Through Ops21, a Futureworks NYC program backed by NYCEDCand led by ITAC, we will be hosting 24 advanced technology workshops across three topic areas: advanced materials, digital manufacturing, and robotics.

This is a Robotics Awareness Workshop, which is intended to increase your general understanding of robotics (e.g. collaborative robots, automated systems, etc.) so that you can better identify which technologies may be most relevant and affordable for your company.

This workshop will be presented by NYU Tandon's Mechatronics, Control and Robotics Lab (MCRL), and is specifically for manufacturers that are operating within the five boroughs of NYC.


About Robotics:

Robotics is the use of integrated systems that perform tasks deemed tedious, difficult, repetitive, or dangerous for people. Robotics includes the use of collaborative robots (cobots), which work side-by-side with people in shared workspaces. Benefits include increased quality and accuracy from consistent, repeatable operations; enhanced workflows lowering production costs; and improved payback periods due to increased robot affordability (e.g. cobots).


Who Should Attend?

  • Executives and Company Decision-Makers

  • Directors / VPs / Managers of Manufacturing / Operations

  • Technology and Innovation Specialists

  • Plant Engineers


Workshop eligibility: This workshop is for established NYC manufacturing or industrial companies operating (making or assembling products) within NYC’s five boroughs. Established NYC manufacturers are those that are revenue producing and having been in operation for more than 5 years. If you are a revenue producing NYC manufacturer that has been operating, as defined above, for less than 5 years, please contact us at futureworks@itac.nyc prior to registration so we can see whether this program makes sense for your company or not.
