The Cowboys Stadium will host a robotics event

Despite gaining over 10,000 manufacturing positions in the last ten months, the Dallas metro area still has more job openings than candidates. “Due to historically low labour participation rates in our area, manufacturers are frequently unable to staff their shifts,” says Nick Armenta, regional manager of Olympus Controls, an engineering services firm that specialises in the integration of motion control, machine vision, and robotic technologies. In Texas, there are currently 0.8 unemployed people for every job vacancy, with the disparity being notably pronounced in manufacturing.

Olympus Controls is welcoming manufacturing professionals to AT&T Stadium for “Waves of Innovation,” a one-of-a-kind event that will feature live demonstrations of the latest automation and robotics solutions given by senior problem solvers who will be available to discuss attendees’ production concerns. The event will take place on November 15, 2023, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in in&T Stadium’s Choctaw Club. Attendance is free, but you must register in advance. More than 20 different automation companies will demonstrate a wide range of automation, including collaborative robots handling arduous sanding and polishing tasks, vision-guided robotic arms picking up items using deep learning algorithms, and applications for automated machine loading and laser marking.
