Manufacturing Automation Roundtable

I had the great pleas­ure today of par­ti­cip­at­ing in a round table dis­cus­sion that was held by Man­u­fac­tur­ing Auto­ma­tion magazine at their headquar­ters in Aurora, Ontario.

Around the table were: Eliza­beth Rankin – CSA, Wayne De L’Orme – Ontario Min­istry of Labour, Dave Lawson – Advanced Motion & Con­trols, Jeff Math­yssen – Elec­tro-Mag, Rick Sauer – Festo, Dan Fourni­er – Omron and Lisa Bolton – Sher­rard Kuzz LLP.

The depth and breadth of the expert­ise was refresh­ing, and the dis­cus­sion that ranged from stand­ards and har­mon­iz­a­tion to the prac­tice of safety, work­place OHS  and edu­ca­tion of engin­eers and users was stim­u­lat­ing.

CLB Media is plan­ning to have a video of the dis­cus­sions avail­able on their web site, as well as an art­icle in the magazine and on the web site.

For more inform­a­tion, con­tact Mary Del Cian­cio at CLB Media.

Watch for the art­icle in Man­u­fac­tur­ing Auto­ma­tion in their Nov/Dec issue!
