Advances in automation technology are revolutionizing the way we make things. Today, industrial robots are cheaper, more flexible and accessible to almost every manufacturing company. Don’t be caught on the sidelines while your competitors seize the opportunity. Find out how companies like yours, are improving their operations and increasing their bottom lines at AMT’s Automation in Manufacturing Conference at the MGM Grand Detroit on June 4.

According to a recent report by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), manufacturers will significantly accelerate the use of automation over the next decade. The BCG study named the U.S. as one of six countries currently regarded as “fast” adopters of advanced robotics. While just 10 percent of manufacturing operations in the U.S. are automated today, that percentage is expected to more than double within 10 years. Learn which countries round out the list of fast adopters, and which countries are even more aggressively pursuing an automation strategy when Hal Sirkin, Senior Partner and Managing Director at BCG, discusses the report’s findings at AIM. 

You’ll also hear how companies are harnessing the power of robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data to improve performance from the game-changers that are making it happen.  

How have these advances impacted the workplace? A panel of experts will discuss how automation is changing the skills necessary from our manufacturing workforce.
