UL's Industrial Automation Event to Help Manufacturers Innovate While Prioritizing Safety, Reliability and Performance
NORTHBROOK, Ill., June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- UL, the global safety leader, will host its virtual Industrial Automation Safety Summit, June 22-24. The agenda will focus on how industrial automation has brought significant benefits to the manufacturing process and how developing these benefits with safety in mind is critical in order to mitigate risk. Throughout the three-day event, UL's safety experts will share insight on industrial control panel optimization, industrial robotics safety considerations and automated machine workplace safety risk mitigation techniques.
"Modern manufacturing processes and production lines demand a new ecosystem with industrial control panels that help improve production and reduce lead time, robotics that can enhance a value stream through consistent quality and maximum productivity, and automated machines that continue to revolutionize the production methods and increase productivity, quality and consistency. Collectively these industrial automation innovations help fuel economic growth and prosperity with higher production rates, increased productivity, more efficient use of materials, better product quality and reduced lead times," said Karine Johnfroe, senior director and regional general manager Energy and Industrial Automation for the Americas at UL and the Industrial Automation Safety Summit's keynote speaker. "However, for manufacturers to truly realize industrial automation's full potential, it is criticl that these innovations meet highest standards for safety, reliability and performance. This is why UL remains committed to collaborating with our manufacturing industry stakeholders to solve critical challenges and help drive safe innovation."
Sessions throughout the Industrial Automation Summit will help clarify regulatory requirements, while helping alleviate confusion around component selection for industrial control panels (ICPs) and enables a pathway to achieve compliance and broaden market access. Tracks will focus on:
In addition to networking with various like-minded professionals and UL's safety experts, attendees will also have the opportunity to virtually meet one-on-one with UL's engineers to discuss any application challenges, questions about safety standards or project needs.
"With UL's ability to support the development of safe, innovative technology and processes, we're excited to host industry stakeholders to help them advance industrial automation and help deliver what matters to the market: safety, performance, security and confidence," said Brian Spera, engineering manager, Factory Control Systems, Energy and Industrial Automation at UL.
