Flexiv’s Expert on Material Abrasion, Ran Xu, to Deliver Keynote Speech at A3 Robotic Grinding & Finishing Conference

Flexiv's adaptive automation technology will take center stage at the A3 Robotic Grinding & Finishing Conference.

SAN JOSE, CA, July 20th, 2023 - Flexiv, a global leader in general-purpose robotics solutions, is excited to announce that Ran Xu, the company's leading specialist in material abrasion algorithm development, will be delivering a keynote speech at the A3 Robotic Grinding & Finishing Conference held from July 25-26 at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The conference, organized by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) and sponsored by 3M, aims to showcase the most recent innovations and best practices in automated material removal and finishing solutions. Known as North America's premier platform for exploring the latest technologies, effective techniques, innovative tooling, and more in the robotic grinding and finishing sector, the event is expected to attract attendees from around the world.

Jeff Burnstein, the President of A3, highlighted the importance of the conference, stating:
"The automation of grinding and finishing tasks continues to grow in popularity as companies struggle to find and retain skilled employees to do the work. Once they decide to automate, companies discover how increasingly easy and cost-effective these solutions can be to deploy."
Over the two-day event, attendees will get a comprehensive look at the factors, technologies, and processes that yield success in grinding and finishing, with real-world implementation stories being spotlighted during the conference sessions and expo hall.

Ran Xu, who will be presenting the "Benefits of Using Torque-Controlled Robots for Grinding" on July the 25th at 4:00 PM, stated:
"Historically, automating material abrasion processes like sanding and polishing was challenging, but introducing our force control technology has been a game-changer. I'm excited to share how our technology can enhance manufacturing by boosting efficiency and minimizing wastage. Our mission is to create a manufacturing environment that is safer and healthier for workers and more cost-efficient for businesses."

In addition to providing valuable information and networking opportunities, conference attendees can pose their own questions to experts during an optional tour of two of 3 M's leading innovation centers in St. Paul: the Innovation Center and CAM Center Robot Lab.
