"The people attending Automate 2013 want solutions on how to successfully automate their operations," said Burnstein. "Many of these people come from small and medium sized companies, some of whom have yet to start automating. They need to know why they should automate as well as how and they need to know who can help them get started or improve upon what they've already started doing," he explained.
"Automate 2013 will feature exhibits from more than 150 leading automation suppliers and system integrators, as well as an in-depth conference. And, for the first time, we'll offer Expert Huddles on the show floor focused on topics attendees want to discuss. The expert huddles will be just that, discussions, led by an expert, not presentations - no audio/visual of any kind will be used. This will really be useful to attendees who know exactly what they are coming to learn," Burnstein said.
The conference goes more in-depth on key topics in order to expose attendees to a broad range of issues that are critical to developing a successful automation solution. Among the expected topics are how to work with system integrators, the fundamentals of robotics and vision, selecting the correct end-of-arm tooling for your application, robot safety, 3-D vision solutions, non-visible imaging solutions, high speed motion systems, new developments in step motors, and case studies of successful automation solutions.
