Automation in Manufacturing conference looks at robotics on the rise

First AMT-sponsored event on May 15 to feature NASA engineer, aerospace experts

04/25/2014


The inaugural Automation in Manufacturing (AIM) Conference will feature presentations on how robotics are affecting manufacturing, and how that impact will continue into the future. Among the speakers at the day-PLE1404_WEB_IMG_AIM logo_v2long event on Thursday, May 15 in Rosemont, IL, near Chicago, is Bill Nelson, chief engineer of the Mars Exploration River project for NASA.

This new conference is sponsored by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology. It will focus on how engineers, integrators, machine builders and distributors can gain practical value from the emerging use of automation in manufacturing automation technologies can yield practical value. 

Among the other presentations at the AIM conference are:

  • A study of global trends in robotics and the implications of these changes for U.S. manufacturers with Jeff Burnstein, President of the Association for Advancing Automation.
  • A look at how the aerospace industry has integrated automation from George Bullen, the former principal engineer at Northrop Grumman.
  • A chance to network with others who have faced the similar challenges and share solutions throughout the conference and during the welcome reception on Wednesday, May 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
