ADVANCED MANUFACTURING EXPLAINED: Automation – A Cost-Effective Solution for Small and Mid-Sized Manufacturers Webinar

November 18, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm


The recent AUTOMATION WORKFORCE PRODUCTIVITY report from IMEC, the Upjohn Institute, and partners, finds that the smallest manufacturers are least likely to invest in automation technologies.

Yet, it is likely these small manufacturers could realize large benefits by using automation to provide specialized, industry specific products.

Learn how automation can be implemented in a cost effective manner for unique specialized applications – which can drive new customer and sales opportunities.
