On October 11-13, 2011, ABB Robotics organized its yearly Technology Days event, which was held in Auburn Hills, Michigan at its North American Headquarters and Training Center.

The company accommodated approximately 1,000 participants which consisted of present and potential clients, allied technology equipment suppliers, system specialists, and media members. A group of robot enthusiasts and curiosity-driven students also filled the area during the Open House held on the last day of the event.

Forty ABB Robots, and approximately more than a dozen of peripheral equipment providers, were present and demonstrated in the 55,000-square-foot exhibition room. The latest robotics and automation technologies and its borderless array of uses were the center of the event. 

The growing advertising and marketing cooperation among ABB Robotics’ various business divisions and units were highlighted in the event as well. Motors, PLCs, drives, and other control products from the Discrete Automation and Motion team - and ones from the new member of ABB group Baldor - were on display. A wide range of Jokab Safety’s safety solutions, such as controllers, enclosures, and sensors on various robotic demonstrations, represented the Low Voltage Products Division. 

ABB Technology Provider Experts were on a roll providing a total of 15 seminars and tutorials, and discussing industrial robotic technology’s application-specific developments.

Industry professionals took the event as a rare opportunity to obtain first-hand innformation. The gathering enabled them to network with other professionals in the industrial robotic, control, motion, and automation field. Industrial robots motion, precision, and grace were also presented to the visitors. 

ABB Robots and Applications Group’s vice president, Joe Campbell, said that the successful outcome of the event confirmed the continuous growth of the automation market. On behalf of the entire team, Campbell was proud to be a part of the future’s main building blocks of the manufacturing industries.
