ELRIG Meeting at Festo: Robotics & Automation 2018

Intelligent solutions for the laboratory automation of the future 

ELRIG

The laboratory of the future opens up previously unforeseeable new opportunities: higher throughput rates, precisely controlled automation processes, and more intelligent collection and analysis of information. Festo is the host of this year’s ELRIG Meeting, Robotics & Automation, on 28 February 2018.

The focus will be on intelligent laboratory automation solutions of the future with the aim of successful research into medicines. Listen and talk to international experts in the fields of Industry 4.0, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, automated decision-making, cloud processing and big data.

Participation is free of charge. The event will be in English.

These also include the following highlights:

BionicCobot – collaborative robot

Sensitive helper for human-robot collaboration
Sensitive helper for human-robot collaboration

The BionicCobot is based on the human arm not only in terms of its anatomical construction. Like its biological role model, the pneumatic lightweight robot solves many of its tasks with the help of flexible and sensitive movements. Due to this flexibility, it can work directly and safely together with humans.

More about the BionicCobot

Automated sample preparation

Automated handling of sample containers and micro well plates in pre-analytics
