Automate 2024: Guard Your Job

Scenes from this year's trade show, May 6-9 in Chicago

Automate, one of the world's largest trade shows and conferences for robotics, automation, and associated industries, took place this week at McCormick Place in Chicago. As we usually like to do when events take place in our hometown, Electrical Apparatus was fortunate enough to attend portions of the show. Thanks to the showrunners for holding another successful event!

At Automate this year, we saw robots continuing to take steps towards doing, well, darn near everything.

Robot forklifts, robot sanders, robot bartenders, robots shooting name your next trick. It was a show that made it tough not to worry about your job, with these amazing devices performing nearly every human task there is. Luckily, plenty of people were there to accompany them and explain how many of these (especially cobots) products are designed to work alongside humans.

Here are just some of the examples we came across on the floor. For the full show report and photo spread, keep an eye out for the July issue of Electrical Apparatus. Meanwhile, check out some videos from Automate on our X (Twitter) page: (1) Electrical Apparatus (@ElecAppMag) / X ( ....Enjoy!
