SCM salutes veterans, plans robotic demos
SCM has joined forces with the Wounded Warrior Project organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded service
members. Visitors to IWF can win a variety of prizes through a
robotic arcade game led by one of SCM’s collaborative robots.
Visitors can learn how easy it is to program the collaborative bot
and how to help support the cause. SCM will match 100 percent
of all donations made during IWF.
Daily robotic demonstrations will include real case scenarios
with techniques used to streamline production processes. Visitors can learn the fundamentals of collaborative and industrial
robotic integration and discover how to safely implement these
concepts to drive productivity and pro;tability.
SCM will be at Booth 6753-6953-7153-7121.
