- Autonomous & Electric Mobility Tour will be led by Senior Editor Austin Weber on Wednesday, 12:00 – 1:00 pm -- Global sales of electric cars, trucks and motorcycles are expected to grow from 4.1 million units in 2021 to 34.7 million units by 2030, a cumulative annual growth rate of nearly 27 percent. This tour will showcase a variety of suppliers that have developed technologies specifically for assembling and testing electric vehicles and their components. Tour stops include Cincinnati Test Systems, DEPRAG, Inc., Dürr Systems Inc., Schleuniger Inc. and Telsonic Ulstrasonics Inc.
- Robotics Tour will be led by Editor-in-Chief John Sprovieri on Wednesday, 1:30 – 2:30 pm -- With product lifecycles getting shorter, the need for flexible automation is becoming more important. This tour provides a look at the complete range of assembly robots, including SCARAs, six-axis robots and the hottest technology today—collaborative robots. Tour stops include Epson Robots, FANUC America Corp., Janome Industrial Equipment, PHD Inc. and Universal Robots.
- Pressing & Riveting Tour will be led by Multimedia Editor Jennifer Pierce on Wednesday, 3:30 – 4:30 pm -- Assembling one part to another usually requires a third material—screws, adhesive or filler metal—but it doesn’t have to. If one of the parts is made of a malleable material, engineers can use a press to crimp, stake, swage or clinch it to retain the other part. This tour will introduce five top suppliers of pressing and riveting technology. Tour stops include BTM Company, Kistler Instruments Corp., Orbitform, RivetKing and SCHMIDT Technology Corp.
- Fastening Tools Tour will be led by Multimedia Editor Jennifer Pierce on Thursday, 10:00 – 11:00 am -- Error proofing, quality control and flexibility are essential on today’s assembly lines. As a result, manufacturers are increasingly investing in state-of-the-art fastening tools. Today’s tools allow engineers to adjust fastening speed to match various applications and control more aspects of the tightening process, including key parameters such as torque and angle. This tour provides a look at six leading suppliers of fastening tools and accessories. Tour stops include: ASG, Division of Jergens Inc., Desoutter Industrial Tools, ESTIC America Inc., Ingersoll Rand and Sumake North America LLC.
- Automated Assembly Tour will be led by Editor-in-Chief John Sprovieri on Thursday, 11:15-12:15pm -- There are many ways to automate an assembly process: standalone cells combining manual and automated processes; synchronous systems based on rotary or linear indexers; and asynchronous systems based on pallet-transfer conveyors. This tour will introduce five of the nation’s top systems integrators. Tour stops will include Afag Automation, ATS Automation: Symphoni™ Digital, Assembly Platform, Koops Automation Systems, SWANSON-Erie, and Weiss North America Inc.
- Factory of the Future Tour will be led by Senior Editor Austin Weber on Thursday 12:30 – 1:30 pm -- The Fourth Industrial Revolution is all about connectivity and data. Fastening tools, robots, conveyors, dispensing equipment, and even pneumatics are among the many assembly technologies offering Internet connectivity and data transmission. This tour will introduce companies that can help companies get the most out of that data to improve an operation. Tour stops include Acerta Analytics Solutions Inc., Aegis Software, Engineering USA, KINEXON, and LightGuide
