Applied Manufacturing Technologies CEO to share expertise on Smart Manufacturing

AMT’s CEO Michael Jacobs will present “Getting Started on the Factory of the Future,” sharing expertise on increasing manufacturing efficiency through digitalization, IIoT, AI, and smart manufacturing

Applied Manufacturing Technologies (AMT), North America’s largest independent automation engineering company supporting manufacturers, robot companies, systems integrators, line builders and users of robotic automation worldwide, today announced the details of its participation in the ATX East Advanced Manufacturing event hosted by UBM Canon at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, NY.

President and CEO Michael Jacobs will present “Getting Started on the Factory of the Future” on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 11:00 am EDT in booth 102 at the ATX East Advanced Manufacturing event at the Javits Center.  Jacobs will discuss smart manufacturing, which increases productivity and efficiency while reducing downtime and operating costs.  The presentation will offer practical advice on how to get started building the factory of the future while future-proofing your business.  With advanced manufacturing and digitization being at the forefront of Industry 4.0, Jacobs recently previewed his presentation in an article published by Plastics Today.

“What I hope attendees come away with from the presentation is the importance of defining your application ahead of time” Jacobs told Plastics Today.  “Define your need, understand your need, acquire the necessary technology, and develop a proper plan for implementation.  It sounds simple, but it’s surprising how often you see people taking missteps.”
