The highly anticipated return of Automation UK is fast approaching, with the show once again taking place at the Coventry Building Society Arena, between 18th and 19th June 2024. It is expected that this year’s show will attract a large number of visitors eager to discover the very latest in business solutions offered by the exciting technologies that are an integral part of automation and robotics.

The event is organised and owned by the British Automation and Robot Association (BARA), part of Automate UK, and promotes the uses and benefits of automation and robotics in the UK. Automation UK brings together a wide range of well-known brands to showcase their cutting-edge products and services to visitors who are keen to explore solutions that will deliver improvements to their business operations.

Over 50 companies will be exhibiting their innovative solutions including robots, robotics systems, systems integration, automation control parts and systems, and sensor and machine safety. Visitors will be able to benefit from meeting exhibiting experts, suppliers, technicians and advisors, all of whom will be on hand to offer their valuable expertise and support.

Paul Smith, Product Manager for Mobile Robotics and Automation at RM Group said this about last year’s event: This is a one stop shop for automation whether that is as an integrator and you are looking for suppliers, or if you are an end user looking for a solution such as palletising, or any other type of automation then this is the place to come.

Visitors will have a fantastic opportunity to learn from the content rich seminars held throughout the two-day event. These sessions will be delivered by leading industry experts who will share their in-dept knowledge about the latest captivating technologies and solutions. Seminars are designed to inspire visitors with thoughts about how they can put their learnings into practice in their businesses.

BARA recently announced Vanessa Loiola, the founder of Valoy Automation as a keynote speaker at the seminars. Her session will go into detail about enhancing robotic cell performance with strategic programming solutions.

The second keynote session will be delivered by Mike Loughran, Director of Intelligent Devices, Software & Control Business – EMEA North Region at Rockwell Automation. This session explores how companies can quickly, and easily deploy emerging technologies to support their smart manufacturing goals, whilst helping them overcome some of the challenges facing UK manufacturing.

The packed seminar programme offers something for everyone with its wide range of topics, such as the process of deploying MiR robots successfully, the impact of AI in the food industry, time-of-flight sensor in factory automation, and saving energy using vacuum automation.

Some of the guest speakers include:

  • Josh Roberts from Festo will explain how selecting the appropriate field-level control architecture for your machine can influence the performance and build / commissioning time which has a significant impact on the total machine cost.
  • George Thompson, UK Sales Manager at Gudel Lineartec (U.K.) Ltd will discuss alternative types of industrial robots such as linear robots (gantries). George’s presentation will go into detail about different sizes of gantry robots and sectors they are used in.
  • Phillipa Glover from Omron will focus on manufacturers who are looking to enhance production agility and maximise value at every stage of their processes, including innovative and flexible manufacturing strategies.

The comprehensive seminar programme is available to view here.

Automation UK provides visitors with a great opportunity to network with a broad range of experts, exhibitors and industry peers throughout the show. In addition, visitors can take advantage of visiting the co-located Machine Vision Conference, which is organised by the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA), who are also part of Automate UK. MVC is a well-established industrial vision and imaging systems event that perfectly compliments Automation UK.
