NWIRC continues a focus on technology education for manufacturers with upcoming programs in collaboration with NEFF and other partners in the region.

Cookies and Cobots is scheduled for May 15th from 11:30am-3:00pm at the Conewango Club in Warren, PA. This workshop will showcase how Universal Robots work collaboratively and safely alongside humans, have flexible deployment, easy programming, and fast set-up. Participants will also learn about other products that can help make automation seamless.

The Machine Vision workshop will be held at the Red Fern in Kersey, PA (near St Marys) on June 19th from 11:30am-3:00pm. Participants will learn the fundamentals of machine vision and see the latest in its solutions from Cognex for improving efficiency of the production line and quality of parts. You are encouraged to bring samples of your own parts for a chance to see them live under the camera.

There is no cost for either of the programs, but registration is required and lunch will be provided. Each program features a raffle drawing of an iRobot Roomba Vacuum for manufacturers who register early and attend the program.  See details at www.nwirc.org/events.
