Is it better to manage a robotic or vision implementation in-house, or bring in outside resources to assist your team?

For Robotic and Vision Implementations: Choose your project manager, based on the complexity of your implementation.




With robotic integrations becoming more and more straightforward, you may opt to handle the project. If you don’t have the resources in-house, or the time, you can choose to rely on FPE Automation for expert assistance.

For more complex applications, or when there is already a turnkey solution out there that is right for you, FPE Automation has established relationships with certified systems integrators (CSIs) who can offer even more, in terms of possibilities.




We can help you decide. Visit http://www.fpeautomation.com/handshake-solutions/ to answer a short questionnaire, or download the whitepaper to get started.
