ANN ARBOR, Michigan (October 21, 2008) – The 2009 International Robots, Vision Motion Control Show has announced that “Win Globally: Innovate Automate” is the theme for North America’s largest event dedicated to these technologies. The show, which is held just once every two years, takes place June 9-11, 2009, at the Donald E. Stephens Center in Rosemont (Chicago), Illinois.
“In the increasingly competitive global manufacturing arena, it’s not enough just to innovate to succeed, you also have to automate,” said Jeffrey A. Burnstein, Executive Vice President of Robotic Industries Association, a sponsoring organization for the event along with the Automated Imaging Association and the Motion Control Association.
“Improving productivity, boosting product quality, reducing scrap, getting new products to market faster and cheaper – all of these issues are more important than ever today,” Burnstein explained. “Robots, machine vision and motion control have a proven track record of success in helping manufacturing companies, which is why our trade show is such a great forum for companies seeking these products.”
Suppliers of these technologies strongly support the show, which has been successfully reaching customers since the late 1970s.
