Join us online Wed. Sept. 29 at 1 pm ET for the Future of Automation: 2021 Technology Forum!

Automation is no longer simply a “nice to have.” The pandemic has made it clear that manufacturers must implement technology to build resilience and ensure global competitiveness.

Throughout COVID-19, manufacturers have faced an immediate need: to augment their workforce with technology to get the job done. Now, with economic rebound on the horizon, decision-makers are turning their attention to digital transformation plans that employ tools such as modelling, predictive analytics and end-to-end visibility.

Future of Automation is a FREE-to-attend education forum focusing on applications and trends that increase production efficiency, optimize throughput and maximize workforce potential. In a series of presentations, industry-leading technology manufacturers will share information and solutions to help reduce costs, boost profits and secure market position.
