Sept. 26th ROBOTIC AUTOMATION SEMINAR: Productivity and your bottom line

September 10, 2012

As the founder and owner of Norjen Technologies, John Kaye has extensive experience specifying and designing computer and embedded electronics for the interfacing between robots and shop floor machines. He has BSc. and Masters Degrees in electrical engineering, and a PhD in industrial engineering. He has worked with Acres Consulting on the Nelson River Power Dam Projects and Wardrop Engineering as project engineer on a $1.5-million solar monitoring program across Canada.
Norjen has worked primarily on automation projects solving many design issues on the interfacing of robotic welders, water cutting robots and pick’n’place robots onto the manufacturing shop floor.
John also served as the Engineer-in-Residence in electrical and computer engineering with the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba.

Join Red River College and John Kaye, CEO of Norjen Technologies for an insightful discussion on the potential benefits of implementing robotic technologies.
Introducing digital technologies, such as robotic automation, on the shop floor can be an excellent strategy for many manufacturers. From the precise trimming of fiberglass products to the polishing or painting of parts, John will discuss how a robotic cell can provide a needed boost in production, while reducing input costs and maintaining consistent quality standards. He will also discuss the necessary cost factors to consider when looking at implementation, such as the various types of end-of-arm tooling and fixturing that might be required.
Through the presentation of many real examples from other companies, attendees will leave this seminar with an understanding of trends and potential productivity benefits of robotic automation, and an idea of what it takes to design and integrate a successful robotic project.
