Automate show in Chicago in retrospect

Great energy from the visitors and exhibitors

From 8 to 11 April, North America's largest showcase opened its doors to trends in the automation industry, cutting-edge technologies and business innovations. 'Many thanks for those visiting us at this year’s Automate in Chicago! Our high-end robotics combined with ROS vision technology was a big hit as KEBA welcomed numerous visitors to the booth for discussions about our automation solutions', says Patrick Crutchfield, KEBAs Country Manager of the USA.

'During the show we experienced great energy from the visitors and exhibitors and are fortunate to be part of this growing technology community. The Automate show was once again an absolute highlight event', Crutchfield says.

The 'Automate Show and Conference' which takes place every two years has meanwhile grown to more than 500 exhibitors, over 20,000 participants and 1,000 paid conference topics. The KEBA team was present as an exhibitor with its own stand in the North hall. Under the motto 'Mastering the Digital Transformation', the technology expert showed visitors how they can prepare for future developments. Whether hardware or software, individual components or complete solutions, there is an answer for every requirement. The KEBA portfolio in industrial automation ranges from turnkey robotics and safety solutions to innovative mobile and stationary operating solutions and an open control platform.

'Many thanks to all the visitors who came to our stand in such large numbers. We had exciting and interesting conversations about robotics and automation solutions,' says Crutchfield. The expert audience was also particularly impressed by KEBA's high-end robotics solution KeMotion in combination with ROS Vision technology.

By the way: The next Automate show will take place in Detroit in 2021. This means that the event will change location for the first time since 2011. 'KEBA was also fortunate to participate in the Automate 2021 show committee and are excited to be part of this team to prepare for the next Automate show,' concludes Crutchfield.
