The rate ramp-up is coming. Are you ready for automation and robotics?

At our recent Innovation Showcase: Manufacturing Automation and Robotics, we joined forces with the High-Value Manufacturing Catapult Centres and brought together close to a hundred industry leaders to showcase how automation and robotics can support aerospace manufacturing and enable the rate to ramp-up. We spent a day at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), sharing expertise and forging new paths forward to accelerate technology adoption. 

If you didn’t have a chance to join us, here’s a little rundown of the event, courtesy of our scribe Amy Powell.  

Our first panel set the themes for the day and discussed the industry challenge, as well as the main strategic opportunities for automation and robotics in aerospace manufacturing.  

We then had an opportunity to listen to seven innovative companies pitching their automation and robotics solutions.

Our second panel then looked at how automation and robotics can meet some of the key sector challenges.

Our final panel highlighted the support that is available to companies interested in progressing automation and robotics and discussed how the sector can jointly progress.

Simon Webb and Alex Hickson closed the day with summary thoughts, best summarised with one word: Collaborate! 

We hope to see you soon at one of our other ATI Hub events.
