How can you cost-effectively improve the performance and sustainability of the more than 3 million industrial robots used in manufacturing today? What about the estimated 500,000 new robots coming online every year?

One manufacturer reconsidered the design of the gripper found at the end of one of their articulated robots. The result was a lightweight gripper with lower operating costs, higher performance and improved sustainability.

This webinar examines how the company used generative design and additive manufacturing to make a big impact on its operations.

The time of the overly large, slow-moving and energy-inefficient robot arm is over. Register for this webinar to discover the secrets of this new lightweight gripper and begin optimizing your smart manufacturing processes.
