Innovation Talk: Robotics Day

Industrial robots play a key role in the future of smart manufacturing and smart factories. However, robotics deployments must be coupled with digitization and advanced automation to help solve manufacturers production, flexibility, and sustainability challenges. 

Machine builders (OEMs) can create value by equipping machines with automation and digitization, enabling both machines and robots to be more connected and data driven.

Due to a change in scheduling, the planned event in Montreal will now take place on Thursday, March 14. Registration for the Montreal event will close on March 11.
