Next Level Manufacturing on Display in Arlington Heights, IL on October 15

FPE Automation, an Elk Grove Village, IL-based company established in 1963, will be hosting a Tech Expo, at which its high-tech industrial products will be on display, including collaborative probotics, AI/deep learning, vision systems, motion control, I/O link, bin picking, robotic machine tending and palletizers.


Attendees will be able to see all of that, and more, at FPE Automation’s Tech Expo, called “Next Level Manufacturing,” a one-day-only event taking place at the DoubleTree by Hilton-Chicago in Arlington Heights, IL, on Tuesday, October 15, 2019. 


Companies specializing in industrial automation, such as Cognex, Universal Robots, Epson, Canon, Panasonic, Omron, MAC Valves, Bimba, Piab, Tolomatic, Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), PHD Inc., Soft Robotics, Robotiq, QC Conveyors, Murrelektronik, Iris Custom Solutions, Fusion Systems, Asyril and Vention, will be in attendance with live demos and products on display. 


In addition, special breakout sessions will take place throughout the day. The breakout sessions will cover some of today’s most important topics, such as machine safety, smart factory automation and solving workforce labor shortages with robotics. Everyone in attendance will have the option of spending some time off the show floor, acquiring knowledge they can take back to their workplace.


“The enthusiasm for this year’s event is extremely high,” said Joey Bardos, FPE Automation’s Director of Sales. “With the introduction of many cutting-edge technologies that will allow our customers to be more productive and profitable. We look forward to sharing these intriguing technologies with manufacturers from all over Illinois.”


Regional Sales Director of exhibitor Universal Robots’ Americas Division, Stu Shepherd, is anticipating sharing the collaborative robot (cobot) experience with Tech Expo attendees: "UR will have a large presence at FPE's Tech Expo, showcasing the popular blue-jointed cobot arms in their own booth, in FPE Automation’s booth, and with certified systems integrators Fusion OEM and IRIS Custom Solutions. We anticipate many hands-on, eye-opening demos at the booths. The beauty of the UR cobots is the ability for attendees to walk right up and program a robot to move in a couple of minutes. It is always fun to see the light bulb come on when booth visitors quickly realize how these cobots could benefit their own manufacturing settings."


Sandia Harrison, Director of Marketing for FPE Automation, said, “My favorite thing about this event is to watch the attendees come to the realization that the latest, cutting-edge innovations are actually within their reach. In fact, automation often makes much better business sense. It is far from one size fits all. From the smallest, all the way up to the largest, most sophisticated manufacturing facility, there are definitely ways you can leverage automation to streamline your operations."


Harrison added, "We present the technology in a relaxed and casual setting, with fun activities and prizes and a delicious lunch is served. The Tech Expo is for everyone who manufactures products. If that describes you, then we encourage you to stop by. I believe you will be extremely glad you did!”


Molly Lynch, Bimba Manufacturing’s Midwest Regional Sales Manager, said, “Bimba is excited to join FPE’s Tech Expo. It is a great opportunity to network and help engineers solve their automation challenges using our products.”


The event is free to attend; register in advance.
