On the 16 November, in the Robot & Automation Theatre, our CEO, Ben Adeline, will host a keynote presentation “Creating a step change in manufacturing automation for Smart Factories”

This presentation will highlight some of the emerging factors that are driving changes to manufacturing automation and will explore a data driven approach that can yield the performance and flexibility required from industrial robots to meet demands of the smart factory.

Keynote Presentation:
“Creating a step change in manufacturing automation for Smart Factories”
The industrial robot has been the stalwart of automated manufacturing for the past 40 years. But with consumer demand driving greater variety and frequency of new products, coupled with greater scarcity and cost of raw materials and energy, it is right to challenge how fit for purpose today’s robots are for the future factory.

This presentation will highlight some of the emerging factors that are driving changes to manufacturing automation and will explore a data driven approach that can yield the performance and flexibility required from industrial robots to meet demands of the smart factory.

Key learning points

  • How is manufacturing changing and what does this mean for automation
    What are the limitations of industrial robots and how does this impact smart factories
  • How can sensors and a data-driven approach increase automation flexibility and performance
