Kawasaki Robotics presents ‘Ask The Experts’ facility at MACH 2020

Kawasaki Robotics presents ‘Ask The Experts’ facility at MACH 2020
Kawasaki Robotics pioneers 'Not sure if you need a robot?’ scheme at MACH 2020, offering confidential advice to visitors.

Kawasaki Robotics is pioneering an innovative new opportunity for visitors at MACH 2020. The ‘Not sure if you need a robot?’ confidential advice service will be on its stand for the duration of the event.

For the first time, visitors who might be thinking of automating but are uncertain about whether it is necessary, viable, affordable or achievable can meet with a Kawasaki Robotics expert for an independent assessment. To ensure that any advice provided is indeed absolutely independent, show visitors need not provide their name or company name when they meet with the Kawasaki Robotics experts, just their job function.

Kawasaki Robotics’ Ian Hensman, together with fellow industry stalwart Malcolm Akers, will be providing the service throughout every day of MACH 2020. Ian said, “What matters here is independence and anonymity. If visitors seeking advice wish to remain anonymous, they need only remove their badge before joining us and discussing their ideas. This is not about us selling robots: it is about providing experienced insight into the advantages and possible pitfalls in potential applications, and offering overarching guidance and advice in such a way that potential users can better validate their ideas before investing too much time, money and resource into taking things further.”

Kawasaki Robotics arrives at MACH 2020 (Stand 6-472) fresh from a win at the Plastics Industry Awards 2019, where it picked up ‘Supplier Partnership – Ancillary Machinery Award’ for its work with Malvern-based precision moulders SynthoTec Ltd.

SynthoTec operations director, Wayne Williamson, commented on the many reasons why the company chose a Kawasaki robot: “We are extremely pleased that we chose Kawasaki Robotics for another reason, too – we have been dealing with engineers who listen, understand what we’re saying and what we want to achieve, and are always available to us on demand when we have queries or questions.”
