Getting Out There

In February, item was pleased to join pluspartner Clayton Controls at ATX West in California. Demonstrating solutions compatible with AGVs, cobots, and more – everything from racks to shelving and machine bases is a possibility. item combined innovative and sturdy products with the automation knowledge and experience provided by our valued pluspartner, the team at Clayton Controls.

ATX West wasn’t our only opportunity to network with Clayton Controls. An item Expert joined Clayton at the Mitsubishi Electric demo trailer at several stops across the Southwest. Partnering with Clayton and other companies designed to collaborate together on comprehensive solutions, these stops were coordinated to present a united front and opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and creation.

Then, it was on to Music City. For the inaugural Assembly Show South, item Experts traveled to Nashville Tennessee in April. Joined by Digital Tools Expert Christian Thiel, item showcased everything from Line XMS to a lean workbench and an installation column. Plus, visitors had the opportunity to receive in-person trainings from Thiel, exploring the item Engineeringtool and its capabilities.

We’re networking with other automation solution providers and manufacturers as well.

Sharing Expertise

2023 involved more than attending trade shows and conferences – item Experts focused on sharing expertise through multiple methods.

A series of regular webinars were launched in 2023, led by item Product Management expert Gerardo Ochoa. These monthly webinars have been designed to focus on different item product lines from the Machine Building Kit System to Lean Production and Karakuri/Low Cost Automation and even the item Digital Tools. These webinars will continue in 2024 – we look forward to having you join us! The full schedule will soon be made available here.

item Experts didn’t just share knowledge digitally this year.
