SCOOPstudio Roundtable – Robots, Cobots and SMT – APEX 2019

Whilst robotics play an increasing role in manual assembly they have not yet arrived on to SMT lines in any meaningful way. As a contract manufacturer, Mathieu Kury, Regional Director of Business Development in the Americas for Asteelflash seems ideally qualified to comment, and along with robotics and automation expert, Stan Earley, Vice President, Engineering & Operations at Simplimatic and Mark Ogden, Marketing Manager at ASM Assembly Systems, joins SCOOP’s Philip Stoten to debate the topic and future of man and machine in manufacturing.
