OnRobot announces collaborative automation event
OnRobot has opened registration for its OnRobot Expo, an interactive digital robotics event focused on collaborative automation and applications. Held online on 3 December (9.30 am to 4.45 pm, Singapore time), the OnRobot Expo will feature keynotes from speakers including Camilo Buscaron, Amazon Web Service’s Head of Cloud Robotics Open Source Technology & Strategy, and a panel discussion about collaborative automation with robotics investor and Shark Tank creator Mark Cuban.
The OnRobot Expo will also include insights from James Taylor, OnRobot General Manager for Asia-Pacific, on collaborative automation’s potential to boost industries and the workforce in the region. The day will also feature a keynote address from Sue Keay, the CEO of Queensland AI Hub, on automation trends in Australia. There will also be a session on collaborative applications from Ben Ong, Senior Sales Manager, Servo Dynamics, an industrial automation solutions provider for Asia.
The OnRobot Expo will provide visitors with 11 expert-led, 30-minute presentations on a range of topics from lean manufacturing and human-robot collaboration to an intelligent force sensor solution for collaborative applications and how manufacturers can break down barriers to vision system adoption.
The expo will also have rolling streams for Europe and the Americas on 2 December 2020.
How-to sessions on popular applications
Developed with a special focus on supporting small to medium-size manufacturing companies, OnRobot Expo will offer full demos of OnRobot’s range of robotic components from grippers to polishing solutions with how-to sessions, showing attendees how to implement and get the most out of their robotics investment. Special attention will be given to collaborative applications in metal and metalworking, packaging, food processing, plastics, pharmaceuticals and logistics.
“Manufacturers of all sizes are facing serious challenges in 2020 and, as a result, many are turning to collaborative applications to stay competitive and resilient,” said Enrico Krog Iversen, CEO of OnRobot. “We created OnRobot Expo to help manufacturers learn about collaborative applications and automation from their manufacturing peers and thought leaders from business and academia.”
OnRobot Expo attendees will also have access to explore OnRobot’s robotic tools and components via an interactive digital environment created for the event.
“Collaborative applications enable companies to futureproof their business. The OnRobot Expo is a unique opportunity for manufacturers to meet with product experts and learn exactly how they could benefit from flexible and easy-to-use automation solutions,” Iversen said.
Keynotes with insights
In his keynote address on how Amazon develops, tests and deploys robots, Camilo Buscaron will discuss how the cloud simplifies the development and deployment of robotics applications. He will talk about the Robot Operating System (ROS) and AWS RoboMaker — a cloud service that helps customers build, simulate and manage robotic applications.
OnRobot Expo will also feature entrepreneur and robotics investor Mark Cuban in a pre-recorded panel discussion with OnRobot CEO Enrico Krog Iversen and the CEO of Hirebotics, Rob Goldiez, about the importance of collaborative applications in the future of manufacturing for small to medium-size companies.
“OnRobot Expo will provide powerful, actionable insights for every visitor, whether you are an expert in industrial robotics that wants to optimise existing automation or you’re representing a small manufacturing company exploring collaborative automation for the first time,” Iversen said. “And on the business side, our great line-up of speakers will guide visitors through essential topics including return on investment, how to respond to fluctuating market demands and preparing for the future of manufacturing.”
