Is your company ramping up production but struggling to find qualified employees? Have you considered automation but are unsure of the benefits vs. costs?​​​​​

Join C.R. Onsrud, Barbaric, and Microvellum on October 26th and 27th to explore how integrated automation systems & software could help your business tackle the labor shortage, increase throughput, and reduce your cost per part.


At this event you will:

  • Experience the latest C.R. Onsrud, Barbaric, and Microvellum automated panel processing technology
  • Learn how to evaluate if your company is ready for automation
  • Determine the level of automation that is right for your business:
    • Full Automation - automated material selection and loading, CNC machining, automated offload, and automatic sorting and stacking of nested parts - even from rolling nests (where each nest is unique)!
    • Partial Automation - Automated machining with automated infeed or offload
    • Automated Routing Only - machine your parts but handle material flow manually or with cost-effective aids (like vacuum lifts)


Additionally, all attendees will get an exclusive look at a fully automated material handling, high-speed machining, and vision-based part stacking & palletizing system that resides at the Barbaric and IMA Schelling showroom in NC.  


We’ll have time for Q&A after each session, so bring your questions!
