    With robots becoming increasingly common in abrasive operations around the world, you may be wondering if your shop is a good candidate for robotics. 3M robotics experts developed an easy-to-use tool designed to answer that question.

Preparing for Partnership:

Unless you have an in-house robotics expert who’s going to design your robotic system, you’ll need to partner with a system integrator. Be ready to ask them questions – and be ready to answer the questions they have for you. The resources below will help you prepare for this important step in the automation process.

Getting closer to automation:

Your process checks all the boxes. You know about system integrators. You’re ready to get serious about robotics. The resources below will help you get even closer to automation and all the benefits that come along with it.
