FANUC UK is to host a virtual event focusing on automation for the injection moulding industry at the end of November.

It takes place between 23rd – 27th November.

FANUC told Bot-Hive that the online event will allow moulding companies to get to grips with emerging automation technology from the comfort of their own desk. Attendees will also be able to experience a virtual tour of FANUC UK’s headquarters, as well as view a number of cutting-edge exhibits.

The focus will be on a number of machines from FANUC’s ROBOSHOT automated injection moulding series, with attendees able to view demonstrations from FANUC’s UK showroom. 

Different ROBOSHOT machines will be partnered by a range of ancillary automation equipment, including FANUC industrial and collaborative robots, as well as a number of third-party solutions from suppliers such as Hi-Tech Automation.

Tom Bouchier, Managing Director at FANUC UK, said: “2020 has been immensely challenging in a number of ways, but the resilience of UK manufacturing and its ability to adapt is unwavering. In this vein, we’ve decided to host this virtual event, to showcase how automation can help moulding companies from both a safety and productivity standpoint. While there are certain aspects of a physical event that cannot be replicated virtually, the fact that circumstances have necessitated this does hold a couple of positives.

“For instance, the number of attendees to physical events are limited by the space available, but the fact that this is virtual means we can open our doors to as many people as possible. Last year, our first ever Open House was a brilliant platform to discuss automation’s role in improving UK manufacturing, and this builds on that by offering application-specific illustrations how to improve manufacturing processes.”

The event will also highlight the capabilities of FANUC’s new lightweight collaborative robot, the CRX10iA.
