Bringing cutting-edge automation solutions to help propel your growth
About this event
Increase your productivity and position your company for growth with automation. MTS is bringing a variety of automation technologies to your town to showcase practical applications that your facility can use today. This half-day event will cover four automation topics: Robotic Welding, 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing, AI Robots for Assembly, and Automated Laser Inspecting. Subject Matter Experts will be presenting hands-on options for automation with manufacturing case studies.
Lunch will be served during the event.
TOPICS + SPEAKERS
Robotic Welding for Everyone -Presenter: Jimmy Howell - Hirebotics
See the latest in welder-driven robotics and how robotic welding can be implemented in both high and low volume production. See a live demo of collaborative welding that can be programmed using a mobile app, and used to enable today’s welders to automate their own processes using robotic welding.
3D Vision in Production - Presenter: Spencer Erwin - Motion AI
Learn the latest on 3D capabilities, how it works, implementing 3D vision into production, the difference between 2D and 3D vision systems, and how they can build capacity in your organization.
Finding Solutions to Manufacturing Issues through Additive Manufacturing - Presenter: Ladd McCluskey - Primary Manufacturing
Additive Manufacturing is a rapidly expanding field of equipment, materials, and applications. When used appropriately, these solutions cut costs, save time, and improve workflows/efficiencies. This discussion session will be an overview of the most current materials, technologies, and processes along with case studies to highlight the benefits additive manufacturing can offer. We're not talking about your nephew's 3D printer anymore.
Lunch Speaker: The Rise or Fall of American Manufacturing: How the Pandemic, TikTok, Robots, and Artificial Intelligence Have Shaped the Future of Manufacturing and What You Can Do About It. -Presenter: John McElligott - York Exponential
There's no denying that the last two years have changed everything. From mask mandates, worker strikes, the rise of Amazon, and "the great Resignation", our society has been rocked to its core. There may be a deep feeling that we just need to get back to normal. But can we? In this session, Roboticist, Inventor, Educator, Technical Futurist, and CEO John McElligott will give you a crash course on all of the technologies that have accelerated through the pandemic as well as dive into the massive societal changes that are set to change manufacturing forever.
