Robots fight hunger at PACK EXPO Las Vegas

PACK EXPO Las Vegas will debut the Robotics Zone, shining the spotlight on robotics, human and robot interaction, and collaborative robot displays.


PACK EXPO Las Vegas and the co-located Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 23-25, 2019; Las Vegas Convention Center) is primed to introduce the Robotics Zone, a new show-floor destination that spotlights robotic technology, human and robot interaction, and collaborative robot displays. The new destination area is an ideal place for attendees to get ideas and inspiration, meet leading robot providers, and interact with cutting-edge robotic technologies firsthand. 

Ten-minute sessions will also be presented in the Robotics Zone, where attendees can learn more about the robots on display as well as hear about the future of robotics on the factory floor.

The growing demand for robots is sparking innovation in areas such as improved sensors, easier programming, integrated and unified controls, the selection of available end-of-arm tooling and the introduction of self-teaching robots.

Among dozens of programs and displays, robots will be packing food for children in the Robotics Zone. The charity event is a part of PACK for a Purpose: Robots Fighting Hunger, in collaboration with Blessings in a Backpack, which provides weekend meals for elementary students in supplemental nutrition programs. 

Attendees can find the Robotics Zone located in booth N-850 in the North Hall. For more information, visit www.packexpolasvegas.com.
