Collaboration helps UK manufacturers find robots

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) and HowToRobot are entering a new partnership aimed at increasing the adoption of robots among manufacturing businesses in the UK.The collaboration will bring together HowToRobot’s global automation marketplace and the MTC’s expertise to connect businesses with the right automation solutions and suppliers.

Any UK-based business considering automation can get free help with finding solutions and suppliers as part of the collaboration. The business simply describes the automation requirement on HowToRobot’s platform. Suppliers then reply with tailored proposals on possible solutions. The business can consult with experts from the MTC to help specify its needs and get automation advice, including how to develop solutions that are not yet commercially available.

Søren Peters, CEO of HowToRobot, says: “Many businesses struggle with getting started on automation because they don’t have an overview of the many robot technologies and solutions that exist today. With our knowledge of over 16,000 suppliers and MTC’s technology experts, we can help them find the solution they need.”

The MTC says that businesses in the UK still have largely untapped potential for automation. Compared with the global average, British industry still has few robots in operation. Speeding up the adoption of automation technologies is essential.

By tapping into HowToRobot’s platform and MTC’s expertise, businesses can quickly get an overview of their automation options without having to undertake market research alone.
