Are robotics the key to open spectacular packaging automation advances?
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a new two-armed Pick and Place robot for unloading boxes in production.

Better vision guidance, integrated controls, robots working in tandem and now two-arm systems—robotics technology continues to advance. Will packaging operations take advantage of these new options and, if so, how?

Automation expert C.G. Masi makes the case for further proliferation of robotics in packaging operations in a free Packaging Digest webcast. “Advances in Automation” will take place on Thurs., Mar. 20, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. Masi will discuss two main trends in robotic automation—security and “cross training”—along with what these trends mean to you.

Also on the program is industrial automation professional Dan Hebert, owner, Controls PR. He will reveal the “5 automation trends that keep U.S. manufacturers competitive.” Do you know what they are?

Register now for this free, live, 1-hour webcast to learn about the latest technology trends in packaging automation. You’ll also get a chance to ask these experts your questions about how you can benefit from these improvements.
