Automatica 2016 – Cobotimize your production
10. June 2016 / By Universal Robots / 0 Comments
Excitement is building! In less than two weeks, the leading trade show for automation and mechatronics will open its gates in Munich, Germany, on June 21, 2016. Of course, every trade show is special, but this year’s AUTOMATICA is of particular relevance for us, since we will bring in a new era of cobots:
While we cannot lift the curtain just yet, we actually can promise that visitors of Automatica 2016 will be able to meet Universal Robots in several different locations; First and foremost, there will be not one, but TWO booths of Universal Robots in hall B5: booth 341, a designated space where programmers and developers can get in touch with our representatives and dive deeper into the eco-system of Universal Robots; and booth 518, our main booth, where you can meet representatives of Universal Robots, watch and see our cobots - and even try programming one on your own.
On Tuesday, June 21, there will also be a press conference from 10:30 and 11:15 am CEST. If you’re not in Munich for the show, but interested in finding out what the next era of cobots entails, get front row seats for the press conference by watching the live stream from the conference - sign up using this link.
Another opportunity to receive first-hand insights from Esben H. Østergaard, our CTO and co-founder, is the World Robotics IFR CEO Round Table 2016 where industry experts will discuss "Workplace 4.0 - The Role of Robots". The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) also hosts a gala dinner for the Invention and Entrepreneurship Award for which Mr. Østergaard is a nominee.
We are also very proud to be on display in the booths of our dedicated partners showcasing our cobots in innovative applications displayed in a great variety of set-ups; with grippers and interfacing with vision systems, ready for human-robot-collaboration. Be sure to pay a visit to the many UR-robot exhibiting booths located, not only in hall B5, but all over the show floor. Here is a map, which can serve as a guide for locating Automatica’s UR cobots.
Other focal points at Automatica will be innovations in electric drive technology, mechatronics and integrated assembly solutions. We are convinced that there will be great projects to experience, exhibited by manufacturers and service providers as well as a great and innovative exchange between industry experts, paving the way for future developments. We look forward to meet many new and old friends, partners and robot enthusiasts at Automatica 2016 in Munich this year.
See you all at booths 518 and 341 in hall B5!
We believe that collaborative robotic technology can be used to benefit all aspects of task-based businesses – no matter what their size.
We believe that the latest collaborative robot technology should be available to all businesses. The nominal investment cost is quickly recovered as our robotic arms have an average payback period of just six months.
