Robot Simulations

MCRI programmer will show how FANUC Roboguide simulations can be used to test rate requirements, robot reach, and more.


FANUC robot specialist will demonstrate how FANUC robots and architecture offer a wide range of options for almost any pick-pack-pal system. MCRI programmer will discuss lessons learned over the last 20 years.

Bin Picking and Vision

Referred to as the holy grail of robotics. Lessons learned from a successful random bin picking application using FANUC’s 3D Area Scanner system.

End of Arm Tooling

Learn the process of selecting the best end of arm tooling from someone with over 25 years of creative robotics experience, MCRI’s Vice President, Tim Ellenberger. Then hear from a FANUC vision specialist how iRvision can be incorporated to perfect your process, system quality and logistic needs.

Reshoring/Cost Justification

Discover the ROI of adding robotics. Manufacturing will go to the countries where companies are embracing automation, lean manufacturing, and not lowest price labor. This is where American manufacturing can prosper.
