Empowering Success Through Robot Training

Cross Company is committed to helping you use your collaborative robot solution more effectively. Our goal is to highlight unique features, application examples, and provide guidance on how to implement them in your projects further decreasing your installation time and increasing your return on investment.

Although we have customers who have purchased a robotic solution and successfully implemented the solution without any formal training, for many others, training has been instrumental to their long-term success. Cross Company provides varying levels of training from simple maintenance levels to advanced and custom application specific modules.

If you’re using automated systems, cobots, or an industrial robotic solution, there’s a good chance your operation will benefit from training. Our training is suitable for operators, facility managers, maintenance, and any one else working directly with robotic solutions. Contact Cross Automation to start the process today.
