Presentation: Thursday, March 8, 2018

Imagine a steady workforce, instead of labor shortages. Imagine the number of changeovers you can make in a matter of seconds, instead of minutes.

Setting the stage for this fast moving, dynamic conversation on labor and automation is Brent Weil, former executive from The Manufacturing Institute.

You’ll also hear from fellow industry thought leaders Bill MacCauley, John Rock, Inc. and Paul Lovett, Palnet USA, as they facilitate two panels that examine the high pain points and robotic applications in pallet manufacturing (new, reman, combo) and recycling facilities (sorting, repairing, dismantling), and how advancements in technology can help improve safety, operational and cost efficiencies.
