To accelerate the integration of emerging technologies into manufacturing applications, AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology has created the MT360 Conference. Held June 18 to 20, 2019, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California, MT360 will feature more than 30 TED-type talks. Presentations focus on four transformative technologies: additive manufacturing, augmented reality, cognitive automation and the digital thread. A simulated factory will provide demonstrations and a forum to interact with representatives from legacy companies and 16 start-up companies.

Those who should attend include tech companies looking to apply their innovations, venture capital providers and manufacturing leaders responsible for driving company growth, including operational directors, CTOs, CIOs and senior manufacturing, engineering and R&D personnel. The event is limited to 600 participants. Visit MT360Conference.com for details and registration.

Presenting companies include Oracle Corporation, HP, Ready Robotics, EOS, Humatics, ThyssenKrupp, IBM Watson, GE Global Research and others (see agenda).

Keynote presentations will be delivered by John B. Rogers, Jr., CEO and co-founder of LM Industries (Local Motors) and Mickey McManus, a research fellow in the Office of the CTO at Autodesk as well as principal and chairman of the board at MAYA Design, a technology design and innovation lab.

Sponsors include Cisco, AM Ventures, Mazak, Autodesk, Heidenhain, Makino, Athena, Traction Technology Partners, Festo, Grail, Fictiv, Humatics, nTopology, Osaro and Digital Alloys. Media sponsors include Gardner Business Media and Modern Machine Shop, Additive Manufacturing, Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and SMART Manufacturing magazines. Association sponsors include NTMA, ASME and SME.

“The Silicon Valley and manufacturing technology communities evolved separately and don’t routinely interact. We created MT360 to bridge the gap so they can leverage each other’s strengths and market potential,” says Douglas K. Woods, president of AMT.

MT360 is organized into two primary venues: concise presentations in the Tech Theatre and the simulated factory for demonstrations of the technologies presented in the theater. Tech Garages (knowledge centers) enable attendees to interact with subject matter experts and get hands-on assistance for their businesses.
