Major robotics conference

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is to host a two-day conference that will drive the uptake of robotics and automation across UK manufacturing and address the widening productivity gap. ‘Robotics and Automation – A New Perspective’ will take place on 4-5 May and enable delegates from a range of industries to share insights into the transformational benefits of cutting-edge robotic technologies in development at the MTC.
Mike Wilson, MTC chief automation officer, says: “The UK lags behind many industrialised nations in its adoption of robotics – currently 24th in the world. Such a slow uptake is undoubtedly holding industry back. This conference aims to change that and instil confidence in manufacturers seeking transformation. Pioneers of robotics will be on hand to highlight successful projects that have reaped the benefits of intelligent automation, and help people make the right decisions.”
