Automate 2017 – IIoT, Connected Solutions on Deck
Automate is back! Bigger and better than ever. North America’s largest expo devoted to automation technology and innovation returns to Chicago on April 3-6, 2017, at McCormick Place North. This biennial event is now over 40 percent larger with 400 exhibitors occupying 115,000 square feet of exhibit space. Over 20,000 attendees from across the U.S. and 70 countries will converge for this one-of-a-kind technology showcase, networking event, and educational forum not to be missed. Automate 2017 is all about automation, all the time.
Genesis Systems Group LLC, booth 1609, will honor our host city and its World Series Champions with a baseball-themed display. Live on the show floor, a FANUC material handling robot equipped with tool changers and 3D printed grippers will hand out trademark Genesis baseballs to attendees and assemble a 3D printed replica of the World Series trophy. A nearby robot with another 3D printed gripper produced by the RIA Certified Robot Integrator’s in-house capabilities will facilitate a video display showing a variety of automation processes.
Genesis will also showcase weld analysis capabilities focusing on design for manufacturability (DFM) and design for assembly (DFA). Also featured will be Genesis’ Connected Solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things, or IIoT. The Genesis intelligenceCENTER™ will be demonstrated along with Squeaks, a mobile-first industrial messaging app. Squeaks integrates messaging across machines and personnel, and is designed to facilitate quicker and better decision-making with machines as part of the conversation.
