Robotics, automation feature Fluid Power Technology Conference 2019

WTWH Media, LLC, parent organization of Fluid Power World, today reported that the 2019 edition of the Fluid Power Technology Conference will open with energizing keynote introductions featuring how fluid power manufacturers can be leaders in robotics technology and automation innovations. The conference is slated for May 14-15 at the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Kern Center.

The Fluid Power Technology Conference unites fluid power industry professionals and academics for three full days of in-depth programming including pre-conference workshops, keynote sessions, industry boards, hands-on innovation exhibitions, and networking sessions.

Dan Kara, Vice President, Robotics at WTWH Media, will commence the conference with this discussion, “Robotics Solutions for Small-to-Medium Manufacturers.” Dan Kara said, “The robotics and intelligent systems sector is undergoing tremendous expansion at this time, disrupting and invigorating businesses and industries of all types in the process. The fluid power sector is no exception. I look forward to attending the Fluid Power Technology Conference and engaging with those engineering and business professionals to discuss advances in fluid power technologies and applications, as well as how robotics and intelligent systems products and services support fluid power initiatives, and vice versa.”

Donna Ritson, President of DDR Communications, will open day two of the conference with her presentation, “The Evolution of Advanced Automation.” During the presentation you’ll learn that automation innovation keeps on progressing, CPGS plan to build their utilization of automation throughout the next five to ten years to guarantee adaptable and effective tasks that will enable them to satisfy expanding consumer demand.

“It’s not a matter of if CPG companies will adopt automation, but a matter of when,” says Donna Ritson, president of DDR Communications and the author of the PMMI Evolution of Automation report. “CPGs are looking to OEMs and technology suppliers to provide automation machinery and software that are easy to use, are customizable, and can communicate along the production lines.”

“We’re excited to have these two dynamic speakers opening this year’s Fluid Power Technology Conference,” said Mary Gannon, editor of Fluid Power World. “Both Dan and Donna promise to give our audience real insights into how fluid power technologies can impact the future of robotics and automation.”
