Automation technology October 2022

Panel of experts meet to discuss the topic of robot machining

The SCHUNK Expert Days are being revived. From October 26 to 27, 2022, the automation specialist will once again be hosting an international expert platform in Brackenheim-Hausen. In future the focus will be on automated surface processing. With robotics and modern tools, many machining steps can be automated and performed faster, better, and more cost-effectively than before.
Expert Days on Robotic Material Removal With the Expert Day on Robotic Material Removal from October 26 to 27, the new event format will see SCHUNK creating a unique partner network for all aspects of automated machining.

After a two-year break, automation experts will again convene for the "SCHUNK Expert Days". This top-class event format is dedicated to the topic of Robotic Material Removal and will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest technologies, issues and trends in the field of automated deburring, grinding and polishing.

Robot-based part machining is one of the most important topics in the automation industry for the next few years. Process steps both in machining itself and in the loading and unloading of machine tools can be automated using top technology; modern tools and the use of robots leverage plenty of previously unused potential. In addition to higher productivity and consistently perfect machining quality, system operators benefit from flexibility and lower unit costs. Last but not least, the higher degree of automation also provides an opportunity to counteract the shortage of labor.

Research meets best practice examples

With the Expert Days for the partner network and all stakeholders – from tool manufacturers, component suppliers and abrasive manufacturers to integrators, software providers and robot experts– SCHUNK creates a unique platform for inspiring specialist presentations. Over two days, renowned international speakers will discuss various solutions and new products for robot-assisted machining. They will provide an overview of the state of the art and talk about interesting practical applications. The contributions from research and industry representatives will illuminate the differentiated aspects of robot-based part machining; conference participants will also gain the latest insights from the fields of software, vision systems, digitalized tools and collaborative robotics. Intensive exchange will provide multifaceted support in transferring current knowledge to operational practice. The aim is to automate previously manual activities - including highly complex machining tasks - with the help of robots in the future and to increase user benefits.

As a technology leader in toolholding and workholding, gripping technology and automation technology, SCHUNK has established the Expert Days as a recognized and proven tradition over the years – the topnotch networking event Expert Days on Service Robotics regularly brought the community together and provided information at a top level. The new SCHUNK Expert Days on Robotic Material Removal are also designed to tie in with this and offer participants from the widest variety of areas and industries with a unique platform for professional exchange and up-to-date knowledge transfer.

The automation specialist SCHUNK cordially invites you to become part of a community with future potential. The event from October 26 to 27, 2022, in Brackenheim-Hausen, will be held in English and will be flanked by a trade exhibition. In addition to the presentations, all participants will of course also have the opportunity to network.
