What is the Manufacturing Roundtable?

The Manufacturing Roundtable is your opportunity to connect with industry professionals and engage in meaningful, confidential discussion about the challenges impacting the industry, with content facilitated by our partner, MANTEC. Offer your own feedback and share your experiences with other manufacturing professionals as we discuss best practices and strategies for addressing relevant issues. You'll walk away equipped with practical insight to apply within your own company. 

In this session...

Looking to explore the world of robotics and automation? Join us for a Q & A session centered around manufacturing technology. You’ll hear stories of how manufacturers are implementing technology and receive valuable insights and practical advice on how automation can help you stay competitive. This will be a great opportunity to network with like-minded individuals who are interested in implementing automation in their own companies. By attending, you will gain a better understanding of the potential short- and long-term benefits and challenges, including:

  • Increased efficiency and productivity
  • Improved product quality and consistency
  • Reduced labor costs and safety risks
  • Increased capacity and scalability
  • The initial costs and time required to implement automation
  • The need for ongoing maintenance and training

You’ll leave with a new appreciation for the potential of robotics and an ROI calculator tool to make more informed decisions around the type and timeframe of your own automation journey.
