IHS GlobalSpec Announces On Demand Availability of Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems Online Event

The April 10 Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems online event hosted by IHS GlobalSpec drew more than 1,800 participants, with nearly all attendees reporting they are decision makers within their organizations.

The free online event is now available on demand to give engineers and industrial professionals easy access to educational presentations and industry-leading supplier resources from the live-day event.

IHS GlobalSpec’s Industrial Automation & Robotic Systems online event provided opportunities to explore the latest developments in motors, drives and controllers and to chat directly with suppliers about industrial robots, networking protocols and new product introductions. By attending this event, participants were also able to share ideas and business strategies with their colleagues, gain knowledge from industry experts during educational forums and learn about technology advances impacting their manufacturing operations.

Industrial professionals took advantage of these learning and networking opportunities from the convenience of their desktops, without having to budget for travel expenses or lose time away from the office.

“Event participants told us that they gained useful knowledge about important developments in their industries that can help them run their manufacturing operations more efficiently,” said Donna Lewis, director of e-publishing and e-events for IHS GlobalSpec. “Once again attendance was terrific and delivered a highly desired and influential audience for our exhibitors.”

Speakers and topics included:

  • Best Practices for Energy Optimization
    Industrial energy consumption already accounts for roughly half of the world’s total delivered energy. Even so, global energy demands from this “largest end use sector” are projected to skyrocket in coming decades. This presentation showed how managing energy as a production resource can lead to best practices in the optimization of energy usage.
    Presented by Katherine Voss, president & executive director, ODVA, Inc.
  • Build Machines Faster at Lower Cost
    Machine builders are continually challenged to reduce costs, increase customer value and speed delivery. Discover how Rockwell Automation's Connected Components solution for stand-alone machines – built around a common, free configuration and programming software package – helps achieve these business goals.
    Presented by Thomas Sugimoto, global product marketing manager, Rockwell Automation
  • Is the Cloud Right for Manufacturing?
    Much has been written about the scalability, cost effectiveness and ubiquitous nature of the cloud for accessing and using applications. This presentation discussed specific benefits and concerns for manufacturers using real-time process data in the cloud.
    Presented by Maryanne Steidinger, director, advanced applications product marketing, Invensys Operations Management
  • I/O on Ethernet… What do I need to know?
    New Ethernet networks allow remote I/O to be collected using high-speed modular architecture supporting different I/O types and protocols. However, with the openness of Ethernet comes risk, demanding attention of network security.
    Presented by Jason Haldeman, product marketing lead specialist, Phoenix Contact
