Smart Hub Lanarkshire events

A series of events and demonstration sessions will run from the Hub during 2023.

What’s happening at the Hub?

These will showcase the capabilities of new robotics technologies and how these can be integrated in to different manufacturing environments. 

Our wider events programme, run in partnership with key manufacturing support agencies, will cover a broad range of subjects ranging from Culture & Leadership to Industry 4.0 & Digital Transformation to Investment in Smart Manufacturing.

These will help local SMEs to adapt, as well as strengthen trading capabilities and capacity.

Upcoming events

Get hands-on with Cobots

Are you a manufacturing SME considering a move from manual to automated processes in a factory or production setting?

Has Robotics always seemed out of reach from a cost and capacity perspective?

It could be time to think (and look) again.

Smart Hub Lanarkshire is helping manufacturing SMEs to explore Collaborative Robots (Cobots). It’s not just about the theory but much more about the practice.

We invite manufacturing SMEs to participate in an interactive Cobot demonstration and learning session. This will enable attendees to see Cobots in both an integrated (mini factory) and free-standing form.

Find out more and book now to secure your space at this free event. 

Thursday 9 November, 10:00-12:00

Thursday 30 November, 13:00-15:00

Thursday 14 December, 10:00-12:00
