A forefront for robotic innovation, the North American robotics market is expected to see a steady annual growth rate of 4.3% between now and 20281. Continuing to be the “go to” for manufacturers looking to maintain fluid operations in times of uncertainty, proven technologies combined with breakthrough advancements help to address production pain points head-on. From labor shortages and capacity issues to quality matters and throughput concerns, flexible yet robust robots with user-friendly technologies are optimizing operations throughout the industrial landscape.

Helping to lead the way for multiple industries including automotive, aerospace, chemicals, medical devices, primary metals, pharmaceuticals, plastics, textiles and more, Canada is expected to play a key role in North America’s continued integration of robotic systems and peripheral tools2. Advanced technologies for artificial intelligence (AI), sensors and machine vision are aiding this utilization, bringing highly relevant applications to life for a greater number of manufacturers.

Experience Leading Innovation at MEET

With a growing number of companies implementing robotic solutions, those that wait to take the robot leap risk losing competitive edge. “Our goal is to efficiently deliver high quality, innovative robotic solutions to help our customers overcome tough challenges,” states Jason Jenson, Sr. General Manager of Yaskawa Canada. “With evolving industry dynamics and market pressures, robotic automation provides the capacity, consistency, efficiency and quality to keep operations moving forward.”
To learn how high-performance industrial robots and easy-to-use collaborative robots can benefit your production workflow and part manufacturing, join our robotic experts at the biennial MEET (Mechanical Electrical Electronic Technology) Show. Whether your company is large or small, this show provides manufacturers a unique opportunity to learn more about advanced technologies that are specifically designed for mechanical and electrical industries. Held at the Moncton Coliseum Complex in Moncton, NB, Canada (May 1-2), this is the 25th edition of the MEET Show, and it is the largest trade event east of Montreal.

At the show, be sure to stop by the Yaskawa booth (#1111) to talk to our robotic experts and gain inspiration for your production floor. This year’s booth will feature the extremely versatile and compact IP67-rated GP8 robot with MotoSight 2D vision in a handling demonstration. Ideal for general robot guidance, error proofing, part identification, part inspection and high-speed picking, this powerful yet easy-to-integrate hardware/software tool uses an ultra-compact Cognex In-Sight® 8401 camera for high resolution, along with leading PatMax® pattern recognition software to distinguish structured and semi-randomly placed parts. An EMI conveyor and SMC pneumatics are also featured, along with a Coval vacuum generator and cup.
