Manufacturing AUTOMATION

Manufacturing Automation is changing

June 19, 2009
By André Voshart

Manufacturing AUTOMATION has a new online look and a new editor–and we want everyone to know.

First off, we’ve undergone”a complete website redesign, which incorporates all of Advanced Manufacturing‘s content with Manufacturing AUTOMATION in a slick, intuitive content hub. What won’t change is our commitment in bringing you latest industrial automation technologies, trends, news and products. Among the new features to help us do deliver on that promise, we have:

• Specific Editorial Portals
At the top of the site, you can navigate through a series of tailored “portals,” or sections, to find content more suited to you. These include Machine Safety, Sensors, Education and Lean Manufacturing. As well, relevant products will be displayed on in portal (where appropriate), resulting in fewer clicks to find what you need.

• Comments Sections
You can now add your own two cents to every story published online in the comments section at the bottom of each story. Your feedback will help shape the site and our future coverage–so don’t be shy.


• News Bulletins
News will be updated daily, so bookmark our home page and keep up to date with our news bulletin, at the top of the page under “Latest News.” It also allows readers to flip through the most recent items.

• Enhanced Search
Search the entire site with a handy text field on the upper-right-hand corner every page.

• Easy-to-Browse Product Sections
With more than 20 product categories–with updates added daily–find what you need is easier than ever.

• And more…

So take a look. Browse around. If you notice something out of the ordinary, let us know by emailing us at

As well, editor Mary Del Ciancio went on maternity leave in early June, so taking her place for the next year is acting editor André Voshart. You can contact him with any questions, comments or queries you may have at or follow him on Twitter at
