We’re hitting the road again.

We’re excited to be on the road again for one more key industry event before this year starts to wknd down and folks have the holidays in focus. Realtime Robotics will be out at the annual FABTECH conference, taking place this November 8-10, 2022 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

We’ll be taking part in a couple of exciting activities while on site:

First and foremost, we're teaming up with our partners at Kawasaki Robotics to give attendees an opportunity to experience our innovative RapidPlan robot motion planning and collision avoidance software in an interactive demo at the Kawasaki booth. Here’s the details:

Booth: C11337

Kawasaki Robotics and Realtime Robotics have teamed up to provide a game-changing solution for real-time robot motion planning and collision avoidance. 

This spot welding demo cell showcases the power of Kawasaki robots’ through-arm design, open programming platform, and startup-approved KRNX API plugin, combined with Realtime Robotics’ innovative RapidPlan software. Using two Kawasaki BX100N robots, ARO 3G spot welding guns, and RapidPlan, attendees can learn how to optimize floor space and drastically reduce programming time. 

Those on-site at FABTECH can interact with the cell by altering the robots’ motion path in real time – all without any reprogramming or manual verification of motion planning. Users are able to start, stop or reset all or any individual robots: modify target allocation; change target order; and add or remove existing targets to the robot sequence. Thanks to Kawasaki’s hardware and Realtime Robotics’ RapidPlan software, programming requirements can be shortened by weeks – and manufacturing floor space-optimized.

Secondly, our own Director of Sales, North America, Matthew Somerville, will be taking part in a panel discussion covering the topic of “Using Robotics to Build Operational Resilience & Collaboration.” Matt will be joined on the panel by Francois Simard, the co-founder of Omnirobotic, and Patrick Sobalvarro, the co-founder and CEO of Veo Robotics. Here are the details:

Room: B309

Wednesday, November 9, 2022, from 10:00 – 11:30 AM EST

Matt will discuss how the key success factor in the manufacturing and logistics industries is rate – i.e., figuring out how to be faster, better, and more efficient, without increasing costs dramatically. Several actions should be taken to streamline and optimize deployments, including better simulation tools (enable better facility mapping out/planning, so you use more of available space); collision avoidance technology (being aware of surroundings); monitoring and alerting systems (alerting to issues before they happen); and enabling multi-task programming within your robots (speeding redeployment and limiting cycle times). 

In this panel, Matt will share observations and advice on just how to optimize operations in the most efficient and effective way, based on learnings from his years in the industry.

Stop by and see us at FABTECH, attend Matt’s presentation and say hi, or drop us a line at info@rtr.ai if you’d like to schedule a formal time to connect at the event.

Safe travels and hope to see you there.
