Your Guide to: Automate Forward 2021

One of the largest automation shows in North America takes place March 22-26, 2021.

By Joel Davies -

As is the new norm for industry events, Automate Forward will be held virtually so you can look but you can’t touch. Nonetheless, it will showcase a full spectrum of automation technologies and solutions, from traditional industrial applications to new cutting edge technologies.

The organisers say that “One thing every industry has in common right now is the need to do more with less. Whether it’s less manpower or tighter budgets, demand is increasing even if resources are not. Automation is the key to not just getting through these difficult times, but to growing during them!”

More than 80 speakers reviewing robotics, machine vision, motion control, artificial intelligence, and smart automation technologies will attend. Executive roundtables will take place, involving the leaders of automation’s largest companies discussing their thoughts on the industry.

Technology sessions will also take place where attendees can learn about a variety of technologies and solutions from industry experts. They’ll share cutting-edge tech, new applications uses, and expert tips to help your company stay competitive.

Automate Forward takes place virtually, whilst Automate is postponed to June 2022.

Some of the largest and most exciting companies will exhibit, including Allied Vision, Basler AG, Canon USA, Intel, MVTec Software GmbH, NVIDIA, Photoneo and Siemens.

Siemens, the global technology powerhouse, has openly invited those in attendance to “tour” their booth and see the newest products and software available for the automation market. Some of their featured products will include “New Way of Motion”, drives & motors, CNC & robotics, additive manufacturing, distributed IO and a TIA guided tour.

Amongst the 80 speakers at Automate Forward is Raj Batra, President, Siemens Digital Industry USA. He is the first keynote speaker of the event on March 22 and will deliver a speech titled “The Competitive Advantage is Here and it’s all About Digital”.
