Collaborative Robot Welding

Build With Robots now has a Collaborative Robot Welding System on the floor at the FUSE Makerspace.  The Collaborative Robot (CoBot) Welding System can be operated by a welding expert to improve safety, quality and productivity of welding operations. For most any MIG welding project, the CoBot welder can be setup within minutes and makes near-perfect welds.

In partnership with CNM Ingenuity, Build With Robots offers a complete course in CoBot welding. This hands-on class teaches welders everything they need to deploy and utilize a CoBot welder. By the end of the one-week course, participants will be able to quickly setup and MIG weld using robot automation. Contact Build With Robots for more details.

CoBot Bartender wins 3rd Place in UNM Tech Navigator Challenge

The inaugural Tech Navigator Challenge facilitated by UNM’s Innovation Academy concluded on April 27 with pitches to panels of judges. The eight-week contest involved 11 teams who presented commercialization plans for existing technologies from the Air Force Research Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, STC.UNM, and Build With Robots.

The Build With Robots team presented a novel application for a CoBot bartender which tied for 3rd place in the competition. The team, which includes UNM students Kyle Guin, Kyle Laktasic, and Mario Avalos, along with mentor Janeen Vilven-Doggett from Peacock Law P.C., will investigate further commercialization of their CoBot bartender concept including intellectual property protection. Congratulations to the CoBot Bartender Team on their 3rd place finish!

CoBots in Legendary New Mexico

Build With Robots and CoBots make an appearance on Fox/KRQE’s Legendary New Mexico series as part of The Next Generation of CNM.

Our partnership with CNM Ingenuity to bring CoBots to the FUSE Makerspace is helping to create leading-edge companies and a future-skilled workforce. The FUSE Makerspace is ground zero for prototype manufacturing to small business creation.  A subsidiary of CNM Ingenuity, FUSE cultivates dialog between makers and deal makers to keep the state on the cutting edge of innovation.

NMMEP CoBot Seminar at San Juan College on March 20, 2018

Build With Robots partners with New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NMMEP) to introduce collaborative robots to New Mexico’s manufacturers. As part of NMMEP’s mission to strengthen and grow New Mexico’s manufacturing, NMMEP is introducing CoBot technology to give New Mexico manufacturers a competitive advantage through advanced automation.

In partnership with NMMEP, Build With Robots offers CoBot seminars and hands-on CoBot application demos. These seminars introduce New Mexico manufacturers to CoBot automation and show how CoBots are used to automate quickly and cost-effectively. Because CoBots are safe alongside people and can be re-purposed easily, they are a valuable tool for manufacturers with medium-volume or high-mix production. Overall, the partnership between Build With Robots and NMMEP is creating opportunities for New Mexico manufacturers to grow and become more competitive through innovative technology.

Upcoming CoBot seminar:
Tuesday, March 20, 2018, 12 noon – 2 p.m.
San Juan College, QBC
4601 College Blvd. Room 5017/5020
Farmington, NM 87401

PBS NewsHour on Economic Development in New Mexico

Build With Robots makes a brief appearance in this PBS NewsHour segment on economic development initiatives within New Mexico. Our mission to incubate cobot-based business opportunities in New Mexico is part of the solution.

While much of the U.S. economy is on the rebound, New Mexico remains in the dumps since the recession hit a decade ago. Part of the problem may be a statewide brain drain: educated young people taking their careers — and expertise — elsewhere. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports on New Mexico’s mission to bring back its young, energetic entrepreneurs.
