Collaborating robots and Industry 4.0 in the highlight

A meeting under the banner ‘Collaborating robots – Industry 4.0’ will be held at PIAP on April 11 and 12, 2018. PIAP, Elmark Automatics, PIAP-ScienTech, IBS and the Warsaw University of Technology will host this meeting to be held under honorary sponsorship of the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technologies.   


The meeting at PIAP is addressed to entrepreneurs and decision-makers from manufacturing companies. It will be devoted to implementation of collaborating robots in the industry in line with the idea of Industry 4.0. The meeting will be attended by leaders and pioneers of implementation of guidelines for the fourth industrial revolution in Poland.

The meeting is aimed to present benefits from automation of manufacturing processes and opportunities for capturing of EU funding for the financing of applications. The topics of the event include optimisation of manufacturing processes using robots, the role of robots according to the Industry 4.0 concept, advanced solutions in industrial automation, future industrial technologies, collaboration of men and machines, accessories for collaborating robots, safety of application of robots collaborating with men, integration of robotized systems and vision systems for robotics. The presentation will include practical applications of Universal Robots and the first certified collaborating gripper, SCHUNK EGP-C with certificate for the HRC application, facilitating the engineering of processes of assembly of small components in collaboration with humans.

PIAB, SCHUNK, SICK and Universal Robots will be partners to the meeting. Media sponsors of the event include the ‘Automatics’ monthly and the AutomaticsOnline.pl portal.
