U.S. and Japan Industry Leaders To Look At Increasing Efficiency Via Advanced Manufacturing Techniques

Japan External Trade Organization and TechSolve to present half-day seminar on Tuesday, November 29

CINCINNATI, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Affordable robotics technologies and advanced manufacturing processes are working to enhance the productivity and efficiency of companies in both the United States and Japan. In an effort to introduce more companies to the benefits of these processes and to encourage the development of business relationships between the U.S. and Japan, the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), and TechSolve of Cincinnati are presenting a half-day seminar on Tuesday, November 29, 2005, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

The program, entitled "21st Century Manufacturing Revolution in the U.S. and Japan: Utilizing Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Processes to Enhance Global Competitiveness," will feature speakers from both organizations, with an emphasis on case studies from local companies that have been successful implementing new manufacturing technologies.

Dynamic advancements in robotic technologies and management processes have dramatically increased manufacturing productivity and competitiveness for both the large-scale manufacturer, and increasingly, for small and medium size manufacturers as well. Manufacturers who may have recently considered off-shoring or outsourcing production now have cost-efficient and viable alternatives.

"For many years we have seen how robotics and other technologies have enhanced the manufacturing process," commented Takashi Tsuchiya, Chief Executive Director of JETRO Chicago. "Now, the pace of these advancements has accelerated to the point that major new efficiencies can be realized. Midwest companies can gain important advantages by learning from successful examples of implementation from successful examples of implementation by both Japanese and American companies."

Gary N. Conley, President of TechSolve, commented, "There is keen interest within the manufacturing community in incorporating greater intelligence in equipment in order to reduce variability, increase reliability, and eliminate waste."

Both Conley and Tsuchiya will offer introductory comments at the seminar, which will also feature presentations from Ben Schawe, Plant Manager, Mazak Corporation and Masahiro Akiyama, President and Chief Executive Officer, Armonicos Company. Ltd.

     Panelists on the program will include:
     -- Jim McEachen, Ransohoff, Inc.
     -- John Roemisch, General Manager, FANUC Robotics Midwest
     -- Ben Schawe, Plant Manager, Mazak Corporation
     -- Luis Alcantara, Assistant General Manager, Toyota Motor Manufacturing
        North America, Production Engineering, Body Engineering

Additionally, representatives from both Procter & Gamble and GE Transportation - Aircraft Engines will appear on the panel, which will be moderated by Dr. Jay Lee, Ohio Eminent Scholar in Manufacturing, Professor of Mechanical, Industrial & Nuclear Engineering, College of Engineering, The University of Cincinnati.

The event will be preceded by registration with continental breakfast from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m., and followed by a buffet and networking luncheon from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
