With 3 major trade fairs already behind us, the month of March was quite busy at RoboJob as the international leader in CNC automation participated in Intec (Leipzig), Global Industrie (Lyon) and Machineering. There, the company presented several innovations, such as Coby CNC and the new HWR extension to the existing Mill-Assist. These novelties were well received, including among students, because apart from these three trade fairs, several job fairs were also held, with Coby CNC in attendance.
"Trade fairs and events remain very important to us," Helmut De Roovere, CEO, tells us. “COVID did not change that. It is and will remain hugely important to maintain personal contact with our customers, as well as with our colleagues of the future. This is precisely why we also put our best foot forward at various job fairs at Thomas More and KU Leuven. And Coby was well liked there too, although for a different reason."
"While Coby was actually built to automate CNC machines, this cobot is ideally suited to also introduce students to our technology," says an enthusiastic De Roovere. "Instead of workpieces, we placed a wire loop game on Coby's table for the job fairs, which is a game of skill in which a ring has to be moved along a wire from one end to the other without touching that wire. This is of course very simple for our Coby, but not so much for humans. The students who attended the various job fairs were able to test whether they could finish this wire loop game faster than Coby could. No prizes for guessing who won!"
Although the great rush of trade fairs is now behind us, some events are still scheduled: RoboJob will be exhibiting at Advanced Machine Tools in Barcelona, at Open House in Germany and France and at the FaMeta fair in Olching (Germany). In autumn, the EMO trade fair in Hanover is something to look forward to in particular.
