Free Webinar to Showcase Food Industry Robotics

The Robotic Industries Association will host the April 15 presentation as part of National Robotics Week. The food industry is "ripe for adopting more robots and automation," RIA says.

As part of its observance of National Robotics Week (April 10-17), the Robotic Industries Association is offering three free webinars about robotics, including an April 15 presentation on food processing. "Food Robotics" concerns an industry "that is ripe for adopting more robots and automation," according to RIA, which has organized a panel of RIA members and a guest from the USDA to talk about sanitary design and how robots can safely process raw ingredients, improve primary and secondary packaging, handle pallets, and even load delivery trucks. The webinar will take place from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT.

The panelists include Evan Stachowicz of USDA Dairy Programs; Rush LaSelle, Director of Global Sales & Marketing for robot manufacturer Adept Technology (Pleasanton, Calif.); Clay Cooper, engineering manager at supplier Applied Robotics Inc. (Glenville, N.Y.); Pete Squires, vice president of case packing and palletizing system manufacturer Schneider Packaging Equipment Company (Brewerton, N.Y.); and Daniel Hagen, group leader - Integration Projects at integrator PaR Systems Inc. (Shoreview, Minn.)
