In four weeks, the traditional trade fair duo Motek/Bondexpo will open its doors from 04. to 07 October 2022 its doors in Stuttgart. The 40th Motek, international trade fair for production and assembly automation, and the 15th Bondexpo, international trade fair for adhesive bonding technology, await exhibitors and trade visitors for a live and personal exchange.
Industry players are looking forward to the top event Motek/Bodexpo this trade fair autumn and underline the importance of this trade fair. “For Zimmer Group, Motek is more closely related to the success and development of the industry and the companies than any other trade fair,” affirms Achim Gauß, Managing Director of Zimmer Group. These days, trade fair promoter Schall is receiving a lot of congratulations – the 40th anniversary of Motek is flanked by the company’s 60th anniversary of P. E. Schall. “Technological change means acceleration, dynamism, innovation and creativity – the private trade fair company Schall has been reliably at the side of industry in these processes for 60 years,” states Ulrich Moser from IEF Werner, who is expressly looking forward to the trade fair autumn of 2022 and the Motek anniversary, because it is also an anniversary for the company: IEF Werner has been part of Motek since the very first hour.
Exhibitor of the first hour still there after 40 years
KMT Produktions- und Montage-Technik from Villingen-Schwenningen is also an exhibitor of the first hour; the company has developed parallel to Motek with its 45-year company history. Also there from the start: Afag. “Motek is still indispensable as a contact point for industrial automation needs,” says Klaus Bott, CTO of Afag Group, who appreciates Motek as a platform for innovations in handling technology, feeding technology, robotics, image processing and sensor technology as well as the competent trade audience. Föhrenbach has also remained loyal to Motek for over 40 years, from the very beginning to the present day. Managing Director Bianca Föhrenbach and her trade fair team are looking forward to the personal encounters, the exchange and many new interesting projects with customers and business partners.
“You can feel how much the industry is anticipating Motek/Bondexpo,” knows project manager Rainer Bachert. “Companies are intensively engaged in producing even more economically, even more economically, even more efficiently, even more reliably. To do this, they need to equip themselves accordingly. There is a sense of a push forward, because current events are forcing the industry to go on the offensive and to innovate even more.” The topics of sustainability, climate protection, resource conservation and energy efficiency are currently on everyone’s lips; the practice-oriented, user-oriented Motek/Bondexpo working fair will offer trade visitors and interested parties concrete solution proposals for their production environment. “Motek/Bondexpo will be able to provide manufacturing companies with forward-looking answers to the serious questions of the present in many places,” Bettina Schall, managing director of trade fair promoter P. E. Schall, is certain.
Motek/Bondexpo: Appropriate target group meets
The industry meeting point in Stuttgart in the fall of 2022 will bring together suppliers and users of industrial production and assembly automation as well as adhesive bonding technology. Precisely because industrial challenges are pressing, manufacturers want to drive forward the modernization of assembly and production automation so that their plants become even more economical, economical and efficient – in order to save costs and remain competitive, while at the same time meeting the requirements of energy saving and environmental protection. “At present, the problem situation is more complex and multi-layered than it has been for a long time,” says Rainer Bachert. “That’s why it’s so important to be at the show in person and have concrete discussions at eye level so that actionable and sustainable results can be achieved.”
Thus, overall, digitization and automation will receive a further boost. The basis for this are modern, networkable machine components and modules. Like no other platform, Motek/Bondexpo showcases feeding technology, assembly systems, handling solutions, joining technology and drive elements up to date. Robotics is another key topic that is likely to interest many system integrators. Last but not least, exciting further developments from the fields of software and AI-supported systems for production automation are expected.
Arena of Integration networks players
Preparations for the Arena of Integration (AoI) are currently in full swing: Specifically, networked solutions for digitizing order processing in assembly plant construction and in the sale of assembly technology will be presented. Efficient assembly processes using simulation-supported virtual material flow planning will be just as tangible as configuration and 3D real-time animation in the distribution of manual assembly workstations and the use of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) in fully automated assembly. Once again this year, a total of six use cases will make digitized, networked production processes visible and understandable.
Young companies will once again be presenting their practical innovations in the start-up area. The “Safety + Automation” specialist forum will again be held in cooperation with Pilz from Ostfildern. The trade fair date is set: The industry meets in four weeks from 04. until 07 October 2022 in Stuttgart!
