I met Dave Henderson at The Assembly Show and The Quality Show in Rosemont as he was launching a new product for the automation industry. In this episode we are going to talk about the new product, called Q-SPAN. It is an end of arm tool for the Universal Robot chassis. We will discuss the launch and some of the challenges in launching a product during a pandemic.
