Robotic Grinding, Deburring & Finishing Workshop Dates Set

September 17-19, Minneapolis, Minnesota

If you haven’t looked at robots for finishing applications (i.e. material removal), or if you wonder what’s new and possible, now is a good time to see what 3M and Robotic Industries Association are doing to bring you an all-new Robotic Grinding, Deburring & Finishing Workshop. We just booked the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis as the site of this year’s RGDF Workshop, September 17-19, and there will be new sessions, new information and lots to do. 

We will look at new techniques and technology for robotic finishing since the last time we held this Workshop, which was in 2005 – already two years ago! Once again, 3M will open its robot labs for hands-on demonstrations, and tabletop exhibits will showcase top vendors in this specialized field.

A working group of RIA members and industry experts is planning the itinerary of topics, and speakers can submit abstracts now.

By the way … for those of you who came last time, you’ll be happy to learn the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is a bigger hotel than we had before with more classroom space and more guest rooms, too. (As you know, we were busting at the seams in 2005 when some 150 people packed the event.) Plus, we will be right downtown with plenty to do after hours!

  1. It will be great to have a robot show right here in beautiful Minneapolis (and home of SICK USA). Let me know if you need any help with local logistics or sights to see.

    I was lurking around on some topics about deburring when I found your page. Do you know when would be the next workshop? I like robot show!
