Automate Named Top 10 Manufacturing Show in the U.S.

Automate 2015 to be Held in Chicago, March 23-26, 2015

(Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - June 5, 2014) The Automate Show has been named one of the top 10 manufacturing shows in the U.S. according to Superior Business Solutions (link to website article), who compiled the list after researching over 150 different manufacturing related shows on the Trade Show News Network. Automate 2015, North America's leading automation event, will be held March 23-26, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago.


"We're excited to see the recognition Automate has received by being placed on this top ten list," said Jeff Burnstein, President of the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), primary sponsor of the Automate 2015 Show and Conference. "We see the enthusiasm through our new and returning exhibitors, who have already secured 125% of floor space ten months out from the show compared to our 2013 show."
Among the 129 companies that are already committed to exhibiting covering over 48,000 square feet of space, 25 have never exhibited at Automate before. Thirty-three companies that have exhibited previously are expanding their space in order to display more of their technologies. A special pavilion at the front of the show is devoted to system integrators who will present a broad range of applications in areas such as material handling, assembly, welding, inspection, and material removal. This space is filling up quickly and will sell out in the coming weeks.

"We continue to add space, including a research pavilion for universities to exhibit their latest technologies," added Burnstein. "This space is free of charge for applicable colleges and universities, so we encourage those involved in advanced research in robotics, vision or motion control to sign up today."

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
