December 2014

Dear Reader,

More than 200,000 industrial robots will have been sold in 2014. This is again a new record. Robotized automation is flourishing. Breathtaking advancements and innovative technological developments in industrial manufacturing have caused a substantial increase in the number of robot installations during the past four years. Opportunities for continued growth are huge. The breakthrough of human robot collaboration just started. It will capture other industrial sectors that, to date, have remained undeveloped. The topic is hot! Robot experts and robot users will discuss on “Robots and People Working Together” at the next IFR CEO Round Table on 23rd March 2015 in Chicago.

From 23 to 26 March 2015 we will meet in Chicago:

The Automate will showcase the full spectrum of automation technologies and solutions. From traditional industrial applications to cutting edge new technologies, you’ll find ways to automate every process in your company.

The 46th International Symposium on Robotics, the ISR 2015, will be organized parallel to the Automate show.

In July 2015, we will participate the CIROS show in Shanghai. We will be exciting to see the progress of robotics in the biggest and strongly growing robot market. Finally, in December 2015, the iREX will showcase the latest innovations of the robotics industry.

I am sure that Year 2015 will again represent a new challenging moment of Robotics.

Happy New Year 2015

Arturo Baroncelli
IFR President
