Dude, check this out – there’s gonna be this massive event called Waves of Innovation happening at the AT&T stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys, in Arlington on November 15th. And get this, over 20 robotics and automation vendors are gonna be there showing off their hands-on demos. How cool is that?
But here’s the thing, even though the Dallas metro has added over 10,000 manufacturing jobs in the past 10 months, there are still more job openings than applicants. Can you believe it? It’s because the labor participation rates in our area have been historically low, which means manufacturers are struggling to find enough workers to fill their shifts. Just imagine trying to run a manufacturing business without enough staff. It’s a real challenge, my friend.
That’s why Olympus Controls, this awesome engineering services company, is inviting manufacturing professionals to the Waves of Innovation event. They’re gonna have veteran problem solvers there who can show you the newest automation and robotics solutions. And the best part? They’re ready to discuss your manufacturing challenges and help you find solutions. It’s like having a team of experts at your fingertips.
I’m telling you, this event is gonna be the real deal. You’ll see all kinds of cool automation in action – from collaborative robots doing tough sanding and polishing tasks to robotic arms using fancy deep learning algorithms to pick up items. And that’s just the beginning, dude. They’ve got applications for automated machine loading, laser marking, and so much more. It’s gonna blow your mind.
Oh, and did I mention it’s free to attend? Yeah, you heard me right. It won’t cost you a dime to check out all these amazing automation technologies. All you gotta do is register, and you’re good to go.
I talked to Scott Paulk, an engineering manager at Alexandria Industries in Dallas, and he’s stoked about attending Waves of Innovation. He says it makes their automation journey so much easier when they know what’s out there. In fact, 40% of their work centers are already robotically automated. That’s some serious efficiency, my friend.
And here’s another cool story – Aircraft Tooling Inc., a repair center for the aviation industry, is gonna be at the event too. They were surprised to find out that collaborative robots, known as cobots, can handle the high temperatures and harsh environment of their plasma spray processes. And guess what? Now their employees don’t have to do that task anymore. The cobots have won their hearts, my dude.
So yeah, Waves of Innovation is gonna be a game-changer for Texan manufacturers. It’s all about enhancing your capabilities by knowing the talent and resources available to you. And bringing this event to Dallas is gonna shine a light on the incredible talent we have right here in Texas.
I can’t wait for November 15th, man. It’s gonna be a day filled with mind-blowing automation demos and amazing discussions about the future of manufacturing. Don’t miss out, dude. Register now and join us at AT&T stadium. See you there!
