New (2009) Robotics Industry Directory Examines Green Manufacturing
Green manufacturing is a trend that promises to continue for years to come as governments and institutions around the world examine ways to lower their carbon footprint. Robots pack a one-two punch for this sector. They are green by virtue of their own small carbon footprint, and they are often the best technology to use in the production of devices for clean, renewable energy such as wind, solar and nuclear. RIA now offers a Directory of member suppliers, integrators and educators that helps you understand more about how the robotics industry fits into this growing sector – click here to read the full story.
Brian Huse has been with RIA since 1994. In a "walkabout" of the industry that started in 1998, he worked for member companies Deneb (now DELMIA) and Norgren Automotive – a four-year stint in which he was immersed in the business of software and hardware manufacturing for the robotics industry. He rejoined RIA in 2001 and considers lessons learned in the for- and not-for-profit sectors while looking for ways to help RIA members and its publics. Blogging is one way he tries to help the robotics industry stay connected, and he hopes readers will use and comment on information published in Robots in America, RIA’s blog site.
