Shows how providing robotic solutions for a variety of shoe making processes has enabled Brightwood, the Florida‐based manufacturer of athletics shoes, to compete with off‐shore production where manual labour does similar tasks. Looks at the French shoe manufacturing equipment company, Actis, which supplied Brightwood with Stäubli RX90 robots to perform cementing and roughing processes.
