RoboJob also needs to be creative in order to inform customers as well as possible about the opportunities of CNC Automation. Trade fair planning for this year was completely overhauled, and the company decided not to participate in trade fairs this year. “However, we are seeing that there’s a lot of demand for the possibilities of CNC Automation,” says CEO Helmut De Roovere. “This year is a very difficult year for everyone, also in machining. But companies are now seeing that automation has become an absolute necessity. In fact, it’s even become essential for survival during this period.”
In order to keep companies qualitatively informed, RoboJob is now organising 2 workshops every month in its showroom in Heist-op-den-Berg. “It’s necessary to register in advance, because we’re limiting the number of participants to 15 people. We then divide those 15 people into groups of 5 people. It goes without saying that we’re also taking all possible precautions to safeguard everyone's health,” says De Roovere.
In addition to the workshops in Heist-op-den-Berg, the first Automation Team Day will also be taking place on 8 October at the RoboJob’s German branch in Lehrensteinsfeld near Heilbronn. There, together with machine manufacturer Okuma, the company is organising a customer event. "Those who prefer not to register for a small-scale workshop or event, can of course always request a personal appointment, both offline and online. We want our customers to choose for themselves which type of appointment they feel best with.”
