Final opportunity to attend this ERDF-funded, free-of-charge workshop!

Date: Wednesday, 7th June and Thursday, 8th June 2023

Time:  10:00 – 16:00 (both days)

Location: Bristol Robotics Laboratory, UWE Bristol, Frenchay Campus

Engineers from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory will deliver this free two-day workshop, which provides a practical introduction to the topic of industrial robotics.

Whatever your level of experience or ability, you will have the chance to get hands-on with our robot arms, gaining insight into different hardware options and operating systems, while being able to question experienced technicians.

Open to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in any sector from across Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire, the two days take place in the RIFBristol workspace – a supportive learning environment. All SMEs are welcome, including start-ups, micros, sole traders, and larger companies.

The agenda provides an overview of the robotics sector, a tour of the Laboratory, and an opportunity to carry out practical tasks with three robot arms (KUKA, Universal, etc.) and associated technologies (conveyer, vision system, simulation software, etc.).
