Robot-maker Comau will participate in two different important automotive events – Next-Generation Collaborative Robots & Automation Technologies Automotive Manufacturing 2016 and Global Automotive Lightweight Materials 2016.
Both events take place in Detroit, Michigan, in the US.
From August 17-18, Comau will participate in Next-Generation Collaborative Robots & Automation Technologies Automotive Manufacturing (NGAM) 2016.
This event will assess the commercial benefits of implementing new robotics and automation technologies on production efficiency, cost and profitability.
Velibor Kilibarda, Comau’s director of global products and strategy development, will be presenting on new Body in White Flexible Manufacturing Solutions.
Achieving truly flexible BIW manufacturing solutions requires a multifaceted development method that addresses all critical drivers in contrast with one another instead of traditional “silo” methods.
The presentation will address product compatibility, flexible tooling, and the role of emerging manufacturing technologies, such as collaborative robotics, connected manufacturing, virtual commissioning, and so much more!
This two-day information packed agenda will deliver the latest OEM-led case studies to thoroughly assess the commercial application, integration and benefits of innovative collaborative robotic and automation technologies, which will allow factories to operate more quickly and efficiently.
The automotive manufacturing industry is no stranger to automation and robotics. However, what the industry is now witnessing is an influx of next-generation collaborative robots and automation technologies – technologies that are going to be provided at a lower cost than what the industry is used to, whilst driving safer, faster and more profitable manufacturing and maintaining a solid life-cycle.
From August 23-25, Comau will present and have an exhibit at Global Automotive Lightweight Materials (GALM) 2016. The event analyzes the latest advancements in composite solutions and benchmarks the most effective joining methods for mixed material designs.
Mark Anderson, Comau’s materials and technology director, North America, will present on the topic of BIW Advanced Materials Manufacturing – Solutions and Considerations.
His speech is in regards to vehicle manufacturers continuing to reduce vehicle weight through the use of advanced materials for the structure of the automotive body. This trend introduces new requirements, processes and challenges into the body shop.
Successfully securing its place as one of the most sought after lightweighting events within the automotive industry, the 5th GALM conference is returning to Detroit to help OEMs wade through the increasing variety and complexity of lightweighting solutions.
