As the UK’s only independent industrial robotics conference, Future Robotics will be providing a platform for innovative products and solutions on Tuesday 13th November at The Slate, Warwick University.

The conference will bring together the biggest names in robotics to steer the manufacturing industry in a positive direction, informing manufacturers and engineers about the benefits of automation, through an in-depth seminar programme and interactive displays.

Among those set to exhibit at Future Robotics is igus – a leading manufacturer of energy chain systems, polymer plain bearings and low-cost automation systems.
igus prides itself on giving engineers high quality products and efficient services, tailored specifically to its client’s needs. With offices in 35 countries and employing 3,800 people around the world, igus’ success has been growing exponentially year after year.

Speaking on the company’s presence at the Future Robotics conference Rob Dumayne, director of igus UK, says: “The UK is spending significantly less on machinery and equipment than its major European counterparts, many of which are ahead of us in terms of productivity.”
“The role of people in supporting, enabling and implementing automation is often overlooked but it is crucial that employees are fully engaged in the journey towards new ways of working. I believe the Future Robotics event will support this and help assure the UK manufacturing industry that instead of taking jobs, automation creates jobs.”

Dumayne continues: “Automation frees people from repetitive, mundane and low-value tasks, allowing them to add value in areas of the business where they can truly make a difference – such as innovation, problem-solving, development of bespoke solutions, customer service and marketing.

”igus will be demonstrating the latest addition to its low-cost automation line-up: the drylin delta robot. Made entirely from igus’ own products, the drylin delta robot is designed to be a highly efficient yet cost effective alternative to other robots on the market. Delivered as a kit or fully-assembled, this robot is estimated to bring ROI within the span of six months, rather than the typical target of two years.

With the drylin delta robot, as well as other innovative displays on view, Future Robotics is not to be missed. To book your ticket for the event, visit:
