Seegrid has recognized the economic change in manufacturing with the increased demand for driverless industrial robots to transport goods horizontally without wire, tape, laser or other costly automated guided vehicle (AGVs) systems. Seegrid’
s industrial robots are manufactured in America and support American manufacturing and warehousing companies— keeping America at the forefront of innovation and technology.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) celebrates the achievement in STEM education through robotics tournaments. Seegrid has seen robotic education grow already through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
education. Seegrid recently had the opportunity to support STEM education by awarding a Pittsburgh high school student a robotics education scholarship at a FIRST competition. Seegrid is committed to investing in young people and as the leader in robotics continues to innovate and provide products that create jobs.
Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Seegrid Corp. (www.seegrid.com)
brings robotic vision-guided technology to the material handling industry. Seegrid offers solutions that optimize workflow processes by increasing productivity and reducing costs, creating economic and operational advantages. Part of the role of the robotic leadership is support education initiatives which ensure a workforce ready to use these technologies.
The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) released a report regarding manufacturing migrating back to the U.S. In the report, Harold L. Sirkin, a BCG senior partner said, “Companies are realizing that the economics of manufacturing are swinging in favor of the U.S., for goods to be sold both at home and to major export markets.” BCG partner Michael Zinser shared, “This survey shows that companies are coming to the conclusion surprisingly fast that the U.S. is becoming more competitive when the total costs of manufacturing are accounted for.”
