PBC Linear Expands Factory of the Future Program with Applied Cobotics
October 18, 2021—
PBC Linear's newest venture is Applied Cobotics.
PBC Linear continues to elevate their Factory of the Future Program with their newest venture, Applied Cobotics. Its mission aims to provide automation solutions by integrating collaborative robots (cobots), material lift systems, 3D printing, and other automation technologies into manufacturing systems.
Recent events have helped bring to light the unmet demand for skilled workers within the manufacturing industry. This labor shortage is coinciding with a rise in customer demand, creating a need for higher output with more competitive costs. In addition, shop floors are having to evolve on a dime, becoming more agile to fulfill custom orders and mitigate product fluctuations.
PBC Linear has developed its Factory of the Future Program in response to those needs. A significant focus of that program is Applied Cobotics, which looks to implement new and more efficient technologies to accommodate these new demands. This is being accomplished through relevant industry partnerships and home-made innovation that has been a hallmark of PBC Linear for decades.
Visit PBC Linear at ATX Minneapolis from November 3-4, 2021 in Booth #830 to experience firsthand how the company is building the factory of the future.
