SAM are delighted to collaborate with RAR UK Automation to bring our Cobot Roadshow to the North East , in Sunderland, to share first hand how companies can benefit and implement cost effective collaborative robot (cobot) solutions within their manufacturing operations, to improve productivity, reduce costs, increase quality, and allow resources to be more efficiently and effectively deployed.

This event will feature hands on demonstrations, powerful real life case studies and examples and the opportunity for 1 to 1 sessions. To get Hans on with the Cobot and mobile robots themselves.
