Applied Manufacturing Technologies was featured on the Talking Industrial Automation podcast on August 1st, 2018. Talking Industrial Automation spoke to Rick Vanden Boom, our Automated Systems Group Vice President, who has over 30 years’ experience in the manufacturing automation industry. Vanden Boom discussed several topics including the importance of finding the right fit for students training to be automation engineers, the new safety features for collaborative robotics, the IIoT, and designing robotic automation solutions. They also covered how automation is simplifying the manufacturing process and reducing the required floor space for operation.

Applied Manufacturing Technologies is going to IMTS 2018! FANUC has invited us to participate as one of its Authorized System Integrators (ASI) in FANUC’s ASI booth space in the North hall along with a few other FANUC ASIs. Our demo area will showcase both our system integration and engineering service capabilities.
AMT is part of FANUC America’s ASI Network
FANUC America has an extremely talented and experienced group of robotic integrators that are part of its ASI Network for automation systems. From pharmaceutical to woodworking, FANUC America offers industrial robots for almost any application with payloads ranging from .5kg to 2300kg. FANUC’s ASIs are ready to analyze your system requirements and provide a robotic solution that will improve quality, throughput, and productivity to give you the return on investment you are looking for.
Where Dreamers & Doers Connect
The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) has traditionally been heralded as a prime opportunity to see technology up close and be able to connect face to face with industry experts. This is the 32nd edition of the show held biannually in Chicago, Illinois. It is organized into ten pavilions focused on a wide range of industries, technologies and solutions. The last show in 2016 hosted over 115,000 visitors and over 2,400 exhibitors!
FANUC FIELD System
One of the keys to our involvement this year is to support FANUC’s FIELD system. FANUC will have over 250 machines from more than 100 exhibitors connected to its FIELD system live at IMTS. With FIELD system manufacturers can connect and extract information from ALL of their automation equipment, not just FANUC devices. This information can then be utilized in application programming, higher level in-plant systems, and even cloud-based platforms. The FIELD system is an open platform that makes it possible for manufacturers to leverage data from their plant floor equipment to drive operational improvements from insights tailored to their specific business.
