ANN ARBOR, MI — The Association for Advancing Automation will offer free automation training sessions on June 13-14 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

In conjunction with EXPO PACK Guadalajra, the training covers the fundamental automation disciplines of robotics, vision and motion control and will provide insight on how companies can successfully implement robotics and automation. A free networking reception will follow the training and provide a forum for automation companies to network, share knowledge and best practices needed to move the Mexican robotics market forward.

The four training sessions, located at Expo Guadalajara, introduce the key automation disciplines of robotics, vision and motion control. With training guidance ranging from how to evaluate and budget robotic equipment and suppliers, how to work with robotics system integrators to ensure success, and how to avoid common pitfalls of machine vision deployment, launch and production to examining the principals behind motion control, attendees will gain solid insight into fundamental principles needed in adopting automation technologies.

The training sessions include:
