Robots vs cobots – PMMI research weighs potential

By Canadian Packaging   


Join our roundtable co-moderator and PMMI VP of Industry Services Tom Egan on March 7th as he shares insights from their recent Business Intelligence Study on the Future of Packaging Automation. Jim touches on the following findings:

  • The pandemic has driven the pace of packaging automation, in some cases allowing projects to proceed that might otherwise fail the ROI test.
  • CPGs have focused automation efforts on packaging and processing, largely because that’s what they know best. Does that open opportunities in other areas?
  • Some areas remain stubbornly labour-intensive. Why, and what can be done?
  • Ninety per cent of CPGs say robots have tremendous potential to mitigate labour shortages. Less than half say the same about cobots. Why, and what are the implications on cobot adoption going forward? You may be surprised.

Insights into the Future of Packaging Automation starts at 11:00 a.m. on March 7th. Information on the agenda and panelists, as well as a link to register free-of-charge, can be found here. Register today to hear these research insights, as well as co-moderator and Canadian Packaging editor George Guidoni and our expert panelists discussing possible implications of these findings.
