conference to help industry reap the benefits of automation and robotics

The Manufacturing Technology Centre is to host a two-day conference to drive the uptake of robotics and automation throughout UK industry.

The Robotics and Automation - A New Perspective 2023 event at the MTC on May 10 and 11 will explore the future of automation and demonstrate the opportunities available to UK industry.

Delegates from a wide range of industries from construction to agriculture and food production will get the chance to share insights into the transformational benefits of cutting edge robotic technologies and learn how automation can improve productivity and drive global competitiveness for UK businesses.

The free event, which builds on the successful conference in 2022, will build on the recommendations of a report by MTC robotics experts and the Industrial Policy Research Centre at Loughborough University. The report, Robotics and Automation: A New Perspective, can be seen here: automation-and-robotics-research-paper

The report called for more knowledge-sharing across the robotics community, the need for support for developers and early stage adopters, an emphasis on skills, as well as a greater understanding among the investor and finance community of the business benefits of automation.

This isn't just a typical manufacturing conference. It's an opportunity to meet, discuss and address the challenges with the adoption of automation and robotics. Delegates can listen to inspiring talks by industry experts, join educational workshops, discover innovative technologies or simply network with likeminded individuals.
Mike Wilson, Chief Automation Officer, MTC
The event aims to instil confidence in our companies to transform their future. It will enable SMEs and supply chain companies to explore ground-breaking and innovative industrial robotic solutions so they can understand how their manufacturing operations would benefit. Pioneers of robotics will be on hand to highlight successful projects which have reaped the benefits of intelligent automation, and help people make the right decisions. It's all about the sharing of best practice. At the MTC we aim to create an ecosystem for everyone from SMEs to major industrial players and academics, to work together to encourage greater use of automation in UK industry.
Mike Wilson, Chief Automation Officer, MTC

The conference will bring together high level speakers from industry, government and academia to emphasise the transformational benefits of automation, as well as the skills and system integration solutions needed to enable adoption.
