Our Advanced Robotics and Automation Practice
Robotics and automation have steadily advanced since first introduced to factory floors in the early 1960s. With advances in sensing and machine learning, today’s robots are more intelligent, versatile, flexible, and steadily falling in cost. With collaborative robots (cobots), workers are able to safely interact with the machines that can now do repetitive, hazardous and ergonomically challenging tasks.
The result is improved worker safety and reduced lost-time costs. Industrial robotics and automation has become a priority for manufacturers as tighter labor markets and competitive pressures drive change. Small and medium-sized manufacturers who previously couldn’t afford robotics and automation are increasingly finding positive ROI as the cost of automation falls and the ease of use rises. Teaming human workers with robots on the assembly line will fundamentally change how products are manufactured. Recent studies have shown that the use of robotics and automation is actually helping boost productivity rather than reduce jobs.
CMTC is well positioned to assist small and medium-sized manufacturers in mapping-out strategies and determining the benefits of robotics and automation on their business. We are also well qualified to help our clients develop a strategy for the adoption of robotics and automation on the factory floor.

Join the CMTC Robotics Working Group - we meet on a quarterly basis to promote the exploration & adoption of robotics and automation in our region!
CMTC Robotics Working Group Charter:
The purpose of the CMTC Robotics Working Group is to promote the exploration and adoption of robotics and automation. The Working Group will provide members with resources and information to determine how their organization could benefit from automation. Additional benefits:
- Participate in learning from experts in the field
- Share and learn from mutual challenges and exchange best practices
- Build professional relationships with peers, suppliers, integrators, and academics who work on automation and robotics
There is no cost to join the Working Group.
