Daniel Theobald, co-founder and chief innovation officer of Vecna Robotics, was recently profiled by Mark Shortt for Design-2-Part. Theobald shared, “One of the things that we do that really helps manufacturers is that we provide full simulation services. If the simulation shows that the application isn’t going to achieve goals…you’ve invested maybe a few thousand dollars. But if you go to a full robot implementation just to find out that you’re not meeting your goals, then you’ve maybe wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars. So, utilizing simulation and the expertise that we can bring to the table can really help avoid missteps in trying to adopt automation.”
Embracing a collaborative mindset and work style—both within one’s company and by partnering in different ways with suppliers, can also help facilitate innovation.
Along with a collaborative approach, Theobald strongly believes that a company’s culture also plays an important role in its ability to innovate. That’s why Vecna Robotics encourages not just its engineers, but everyone on the team, to take on side projects that are fun. The message is to play, experiment, and have fun with technology.
