ATS Automation Forum

Location: Booth 2922

Featuring Building Automation and Process Automation Systems in-booth demonstrations. Subject Matter Experts will offer unique perspectives, discussion, and sessions covering innovation and challenges with automation, including strategies for life cycle management, process efficiencies, and enterprise integrity.

Is Your Operating Culture Ready for Smart Manufacturing?

Real-time, on-demand visibility into machine performance requires a new operating culture to turn data into meaningful benefits and competitive advantage.  We will explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital transformation of manufacturing with a particular focus on ways to empower the natural work teams assigned to manage the machines or production systems.

Frank Baig, Director of Digital Solutions, ATS Illuminate

Wednesday, July 15: 10:30am – 11:15am and 3:15pm – 4:00pm
Thursday, July 16: 1:15pm – 2:00pm
Friday, July 17: 10:00am – 10:30am

Emerging Technologies in Assembly Automation    

Pharmaceutical manufacturing systems operate inside of demanding constraints, but innovations are providing new opportunities to drive efficiencies and re-imagine these manufacturing systems.  In this session, we will explore the state of the art in two such technologies - material conveyance in aseptic environments and LED UV-curable adhesive processes for medical devices.

Albert Kleinikkink, Director, Innovation Engineering – Linear Movement Technology (LMT), ATS

Wednesday, July 15: 11:30am – 12:15pm and 4:15pm – 5:00pm
Thursday, July 16: 2:15pm – 3:00pm
Friday, July 17: 10:45am – 11:15pm

Advancements in Artificial Intelligence and Real Applications in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automated algorithms are being deployed to help scientists tackle diseased, develop new drugs and help assess clinical trial data.  Why is the pharmaceutical industry lagging in Implementing AI in their processes?  We will show how to deploy these new technologies for automation challenges such as manual vision inspections and energy optimize the balancing of system loading in parallel equipment.
