while announcing the challenge. “Good
luck and enjoy the day!”
The teams worked through the day —
and some even into the wee-hours of the
next morning — to get their five automated
cells to work as effectively as possible.
Although always competitive, the atmosphere
was one of excitement and comradery as
participants rose to the occasion.
In the end, Team 4 (AKA The
Latin Dream Team) walked away as
the champions in both the sales and
workshop challenges with 60 pumps
assembled and 39 purchase orders.
"The team demonstrated great
teamwork, great motivation and
great application of Lean Robotics
principles,” says Karine Simard, director
of marketing at Robotiq. “Team 4 also
produced the most parts and received the
most purchase orders after a successful
sales pitch challenge.”
Although not all the teams could win,
all attendees came away with knowledge
of the possibilities the Robotiq
innovations can provide to manufacturers,
big and small.
