The efforts of EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works to help Bak USA integrate cobots into production were recently recognized in an article published by the Robotics Industry Association.

Collaborative Robotics Puts People First,” which appeared in the February edition of ROBOTICS ONLINE, highlights how Buffalo Manufacturing Works introduced Bak to “cobotics” with the joint goals of optimizing the laptop maker’s workshop operations and maximizing the productivity of their skilled staffers.
