The North hall of the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA brimmed with thousands of attendees during the week of April 8-11, 2019. North America’s largest trade show in the automation industry; The Automate Show, welcomed ambitious exhibitors displaying jaw-dropping booth displays with everything from musical instruments played by robots to complex pick-and-place applications.
How do our customers and UR+ partners experience working with the UR cobots? We caught up with many of them at Automate and summarized some insights in this recap video, that also introduces the application clusters showcased - along with a tally of the record-breaking number of UR cobots at the show.
This year’s event saw more than 20,000 attendees and over 500 exhibitors, making it the biggest and most successful Automate Show to date. At the forefront, with one of the largest and most heavily trafficked booths of them all was the 40 x 60 ft sized booth at Universal Robots. The booth featured five main sections, with four of them displaying separate applications in vertical segments reflecting the industries where cobots are currently experiencing significant growth.
