Seven partner companies to exhibit in robotics and "Industry 4.0" pavilion at Booth #4489 on February 6-8, 2018
Futura Automation, LLC was launched nearly one year ago with a mission to bring "Industry 4.0" concepts to Small to Medium size businesses (SME) and facilitate the "re-shoring" of manufacturing to North America. Futura Automation has assembled an impressive array of partner companies bearing leading edge manufacturing technologies and services. Partner companies participating with Futura Automation at ATX West 2018 are: Applied Motion Products (Watsonville, CA), Essential Robot Products along with RSP, Air Turbine Tools and Rohm (Granger, IN), Flexomation (Cincinnati, OH), Joulin NA (Hickory, NC), Macron Dynamics (Croydon, PA), Technology Brewing (Salmon Arm, BC) and TM Robotics (Elk Grove Village, IL). Weintek USA, Sicron, Vanguard Automation and MAS will also be providing exhibit materials and resources to the booth.
Industry 4.0 is the name given to the next phase of the Industrial Revolution. What this means to manufacturers is machines that talk to and coordinate with other machines (M2M) and provide self-diagnostic reports on machine health, quality and productivity to company management. The benefits for company management are more machine up-time, better manufactured product throughput for greater revenue, less labor cost to produce product and maintain equipment, better and more consistent product quality leading to less returns and rework and more loyal customers.
Futura Automation, LLC is organized in Arizona, USA with an east coast office in Charlotte, NC. The company is focused on supporting small to medium size companies to adopt "Industry 4.0" technologies in robotics and advanced manufacturing, especially in automated assembly and end-of-line packaging: robotic palletizing, strapping and wrapping equipment.
