AMT/Adaptive Tour
During the event and only a few blocks away at 219 Kay Industrial Drive, live robotic demonstrations featuring ATI products can be viewed at AMT and Adaptive Systems. AMT is North America’s largest automation engineering company for supporting robot companies, systems integrators, line builders, and users of robotic automation worldwide. Located within the same facility as AMT, Adaptive Systems is a Turnkey Systems Integrator that specializes in the design and build of custom automation, commonly involving technically-challenging robotic applications with 2D and/or 3D vision. Transportation will be provided between locations. Attendees are also welcome to visit AMT/Adaptive Systems on their own. For more information on AMT, visit their website at www.appliedmfg.com.
