Future Innovators Robotics showcase at Pack Expo

B&R Industrial Automation sponsors the event


“Robotics and automation are important facets of the processing and packaging industry. It’s important to B&R as a company to nurture the next generation of engineers,” says Marc Ostertag, president, B&R Industrial Automation. “Through sponsorship of the Future Innovators Robotics Showcase, B&R has the opportunity to connect with students that will someday move this industry forward, and provide them with experience that will better equip them to succeed in this dynamic field.”

On each day of the Pack Expo International and Pharma Expo 2016 show, two teams will demonstrate their robots in half-day shifts. PMMI’s Education & Training Foundation will donate $ US500 to each high school to support the teams.

“PMMI is committed to supporting young people in their pursuit of careers in the processing and packaging industry,” says Chuck Yuska, president, PMMI. “The FIRST Robotics competition and Future Innovators Robotics Showcase at the show are preparing students with real-life experience and positioning them to be future industry leaders.”

The Future Innovators project seeks to promote high school engineering programs to attendees and exhibitors, encouraging them to support their local schools and young innovators. For students, the project introduces them to Pack Expo and processing and packaging as a career choice.
