Industrial Robotics Workshop
Just 350-550 robots are installed in Russia every year. The density of robotics is one of the lowest in the world - 3 robots per 10,000 workers, which is 25 times lower than the world average.

Industrial Robotics Workshop is the first event in Russia conducted on the effective use of industrial robots on Russian enterprises.

On Workshop there will be discussions and practical sessions. A demonstration zone of robotic solutions will be organized for the live communication with experts and exploration of ready-to-use robotics solutions.

The goal of the event is to establish a dialogue between those who create robotic solutions and those who can benefit from robots' implementation in production process.

Participants of the workshop are the best suppliers of robotic solutions, as well as CEO and CTO of industrial enterprises.

The event will be holding with the participation of representatives of International Federation of Robotics.

Industrial Robotics Workshop is organized in 2018 for the first time and it will be holding annually.

Thursday, April 19

Industrial robotics: new markets, robotics applications and ways of development
The world's leading experts on industrial robotics will discuss how robotics of tomorrow will differ from today's.
  • What is the future of industrial robotics in Russia?
  • Will robots be a key technology and used at every second Russian enterprise?
  • What needs to be done for this

12:15 - 13:45
Economic efficiency: costs down
There will be a debate between creators of robotic solutions and representatives of industrial enterprises. Key questions:
  • How to use robots to reduce production costs?
  • What are the cases of successful robots application?
  • What is the payback period of robotic solutions?
  • Are industrial robots available for SME and small-scale production?

Robots VS Cobots
Today, only the laziest does not say that cobots are the future of automation. There are reasons for this, compared to the classic robots, cobot are extremely easy to use:
  • They do not need to build a special infrastructure
  • They do not need to be reprogrammed for new operations
  • The cost of their implementation is close to the cost of the robot, no massive additional equipment and commissioning
  • You can control the robot by yourself, without the help of specialists (integrators or programmers)

Usual robots are more " heavy" but much more functional, fast, and productivity.

How to decide what to use - robot or cobot?
There will be discussion between the manufacturers of industrial and collaborative robots.
