Motek/Bondexpo 2023 – a Pivotal Cornerstone in the Trade Fair Calendar

The production automation industry sector extends its invitation to the next Motek/Bondexpo trade fair duo in Stuttgart from the 10th through the 13th of October, 2023. Together with the 16th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, the 41st Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly will once again offer a professional meeting place for suppliers and users as an exhibition highlight. More attention than ever before will be focused on the issues of efficiency, sustainability and flexibility.

Approaching the upcoming turn of the year from 2022 to 2023, we’re already looking ahead to the fall exhibition season when the 41st Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly will serve as a pivotal cornerstone in the events calendar along with the 16th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology. “Motek is an integral element of the trade fair landscape,” says Uwe Weiss, CEO at WEISS GmbH. The personal exchange of ideas and the live presentation of future-oriented automation components and solutions is an important instrument in terms of customer consulting and customer loyalty for the internationally active company from Buchen in Germany’s Odenwald region, explains the managing director. “This opportunity is provided to us by Motek. It’s an integral element of the trade fair landscape, especially in the German-speaking countries. Thanks to its thematic focus and its venue in Stuttgart, we meet up with many of our regular customers from the machine manufacturing and automotive industries at the event.”

Vibrant, Inspiring Trade Fair for Practical Solutions

Over the years, Motek has evolved into a significant benchmark with high standards where automation is concerned. “And this is why we’re expecting another vibrant and inspiring trade fair in 2023, where industry players will engage in concrete technical dialogues and discuss solutions that are directly related to manufacturing practice,” notes Rainer Bachert, longstanding Motek/Bondexpo project manager. “After successful staging of Motek/Bondexpo in 2022 with exhibitors from 24 countries, many participants have already made firm bookings for next year, because this is where they meet up with precisely the right target groups for their new product launches.”

Thilo Lutz, managing director of Utz Ratio Technik, describes Motek as the industry’s leading trade fair. The company from Korb, Germany, considers this exactly the right place to be because they’re not only able to maintain contact with existing and future customers, they get together with their suppliers here as well. For Andrea Alboni as well, general manager for Western Europe at Universal Robots, Motek is one of the annual must-attend events for engaging in an important exchange with potentially interested parties, as well as new and existing customers. And thus for industry players from the field of production automation, Motek/Bondexpo is traditionally a mandatory event every fall.

Industrial Manufacturing – Fully Revamped and Focused on the Future

Motek looks back on an impressive 40-year history on its way to becoming one of the most important industrial trade fairs. The entire value creation sequence for industrial manufacturing is portrayed here. As a fully integrated event, Bondexpo showcases the increasingly important bonding technologies – they play a central role in industrial production due to the use of new materials and future-oriented joining technologies. As a result, decision-makers find targeted, highly practical and implementable answers to their questions concerning investment projects at the Motek/Bondexpo trade fair duo. Motek/Bondexpo has thus evolved into an effective and indispensable marketing tool for many companies. “Motek – that’s the best thing that’s ever happened to us,” remarks Ulrich Moser of IEF-Werner impressively.

Future Production at Motek/Bondexpo 2023

Never before have the issues of efficiency, sustainability and flexibility been as important as they are now. They’re not only important success factors, they’ve also become an existential necessity in all sectors – industrial as well as non-industrial. Economical and rational allocation of all resources is a concern shared by economy and society at all levels. Consequently, expert visitors will bring along lots of questions about the complex issues of energy and climate protection, and the exhibitors will prepare themselves for this challenge with new solutions.

The Arena of Integration (AoI), for which programme and organisational preparations have now begun, will also focus extensively on these important issues of the future. Fresh and forward-looking ideas are also being eagerly awaited in the Start-Up Area. “Industrial production is well on its way to becoming even more efficient, environmentally friendly and economical. With this in mind, Motek/Bondexpo is an ideal business platform for the capital goods industry, because it supports all players in furnishing manufacturing processes with a modern and future-oriented structure,” observes Bettina Schall, managing director of Schall trade fair promoters. “The dates for the 41st Motek and the 16th Bondexpo – from 10 to 13 October 2023 – should thus already be firmly noted in the calendar today. We look forward to your participation!”

Motek/Bondexpo – a Significant Milestone for the 2022 Fall Trade Fair Season

The traditional Motek/Bondexpo trade fair duo held in Stuttgart from 4 to 7 October 2022 was a great success. The 40th Motek international trade fair for production and assembly automation, together with the 15th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, was a highly successful and well-attended trade fair highlight for the manufacturing industry this fall.

Frickenhausen, 12 October 2022 – 505 exhibitors from 24 countries came to Stuttgart for Motek/Bondexpo 2022. “Once again, we experienced a lively, inspiring trade fair in four exhibition halls with satisfied exhibitors and expert visitors,” summarises Rainer Bachert, longstanding project manager for Motek/Bondexpo. “We were pleased to welcome 12% more exhibitors here in Stuttgart than in 2021, the relaunch year after the pandemic. We’re very pleased with these strong results.”

In many ways, this year’s trade fair was a celebration of Motek’s 40th anniversary. Original exhibitors, including Murtfeldt, KMT Produktions- und Montagetechnik, Afag, IEF-Werner, Föhrenbach, Utz Ratio Technik and Zimmer, were honoured on the first day of the trade fair by trade fair promoters P. E. Schall. “Throughout all the years, Motek has been a significant milestone with high standards in the field of automation,” observed Achim Gauß, managing director of the Zimmer Group.

“The Best Thing That’s Ever Happened to Us”

“40 years participation at Motek – that’s the best thing that’s ever happened to us,” remarked Ulrich Moser of IEF-Werner. “For years, we’ve been receiving more enquiries at Motek than at any other event. It’s perfect for presenting new products,” continued Moser. “The more explanation the product requires, the better Motek works as a marketing tool. We come together with the right customers and visitors here, and meetings take place directly at the relevant exhibits.” Ulrich Moser’s conclusion after four decades of participation at the trade fair: “Future prospects for Motek are outstanding!”

“Central Trade Fair Anchor in Our Annual Events Calendar”

Many voices have unanimously expressed their opinion that there’s no substitute for the exchange of ideas at a live trade fair. Manuel Rösinger from Bott said: “For us, Motek is the central trade fair anchor in our annual events calendar. We speak with customers and users about the optimisation of assembly operations at everything from manual to fully automated workstation systems.” Rösinger also stressed the fact that the right contact persons meet up at Motek/Bondexpo. The entire value creation chain for industrial manufacturing is presented at the event, and suppliers of solutions and systems get together with the right target groups. Thilo Utz, managing director of Utz Ratio Technik, reports that he has also had the same positive and successful experience: “We’ve had forty successful years at the trade fair – we meet our customers here, as well as our suppliers.”

Flexibility, Efficiency and Sustainability as Success Parameters

Many exhibitors focused on manufacturing flexibility, efficiency and sustainability as success parameters. Motek/Bondexpo once again provided the right setting and a suitable platform for exchanging information, as well as for cultivating customer relations and initiating business. For Igus too, Motek has been a “very important trade fair” for decades, affirmed Alexa Heinzelmann – the Cologne-based company focuses primary attention on improving all motion solutions and components. Sebastian Walter from Universal Robots also confirmed: “For us, the beginning of October always means: It’s time for Motek!” This has been the case each and every year, because Motek is “a highly user-oriented and very genuine trade fair”, affirmed Walter. Trade fair visitors come to our booth with specific robotics issues, which are mutually discussed and finally transformed into implementable solutions.

Elmar Worms from Bosch Rexroth also meets the right trade fair audience at Motek: “Our products supply answers to the questions that concern the trade fair visitors.” Amongst others, solutions for autonomous pallet transport, collaborative robotics and modern screwdriving technologies met with great interest this year at the booth operated by the company from Lohr, Germany.

Lots of Young Trade Fair Visitors on the Move

Not only in the Startup Area, but rather in all four exhibition halls, there were conspicuously large numbers of young visitors this year. Amongst other factors this was due to the comprehensive supplementary programme including the expert forum on “Safety and Automation” held by Pilz from Ostfildern, Germany, which presented the most up-to-date information on trends covering all aspects of safe automation. Young companies in the Startup Area in hall 1 with their new developments for production automation were of course targeted by young expert visitors as well. For example, Benjamin Volkert from Volkert Maschinen- und Anlagenbau demonstrated how users can familiarise themselves with cobot functions and modes of operation in a practical manner at his booth.

Six Use Cases at the Arena of Integration

Once again in 2022, the Arena of Integration (AoI) was at the heart of the Software for Assembly exhibition area in hall 1. Participating companies prepared a total of six use cases. For example, macio and sereact offered two levels of digitalisation and automation in production: a collaborative robot was used to pick various items from a single-sort container and place them into a load carrier. The cobot worked entirely autonomously thanks to AI-supported control software, which allowed it to perceive its surroundings and identify precise gripping points, even for complex objects, and to develop manipulation strategies. Another example of AoI involved digital order processing through the use of virtual commissioning and a digital twin as demonstrated by ruhlamat’s and machineering’s use case. Thyssen Krupp Automation presented an example of assembly digitalisation using a manufacturing execution system (MES) for both new and existing facilities (greenfield and brownfield).

On the Way to Normality

“Together with our exhibitors, we’re very pleased to have welcomed 24,236 visitors from 64 countries to Motek/Bondexpo 2022 in Stuttgart,” exclaimed Bettina Schall, managing director of trade fair promoters P. E. Schall. “This is almost on par with the levels of internationalism experienced before the pandemic began, at which time we welcomed visitors from 77 countries, and once again confirms the great significance of this trade fair for the production and assembly automation sector.”

Save the dates now for the 41st Motek and the 16th Bondexpo: the automation sector will meet again in Stuttgart from the 10th through the 13th of October, 2023.

Motek/Bondexpo 2022: the Countdown has Begun!

Just one more week until the time-tested Motek/Bondexpo trade fair duo opens its doors in Stuttgart. Together with the 15th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, the 40th Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly invites all industry players to a live exchange from the 4th through the 7th of October, 2022. Highlight themes, the Arena of Integration, the Startup Area and a comprehensive programme of presentations ensure four informative and exciting trade fair days that expert visitors won’t want to miss.

The “Industrial Image Processing Forum” will once again be an integral part of this year’s Motek/Bondexpo. The event series covering technology know-how in the field of industrial image processing will be continued by machine vision and advanced training specialist Evotron, and will provide trade visitors with up-to-date knowledge free of charge – prepared in a compact and practice-oriented manner. Four short seminars will be held each day in room 7.1 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The expert forum on “Safety and Automation” will also be hosted for the fifth time this year by Pilz from Ostfildern, Germany. Expert visitors will be presented with the latest information on trends in safe automation on the first day of the trade fair, the 4th of October, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the forum in hall 5. Renowned experts from associations, science and industry will provide information on automation topics in an exciting series of presentations.

Trade fair guests can also look forward to the startup area in hall 1. Once again in 2022, young companies will exhibit their new developments for production automation.

Arena of Integration as Trade Fair Highlight

The Arena of Integration in hall 1 will once again be a trade fair highlight. A total of six use cases have been prepared. For example, macio and sereact offer two levels of digitalisation and automation in production: a collaborative robot is used to pick various items from a single-sort container and place them into a load carrier. During the course of this process, the cobot works entirely autonomously because sereact’s AI-supported control software allows it to perceive its surroundings and identify precise gripping points, even for complex objects, and to develop manipulation strategies if necessary.

Digital order processing through the use of virtual commissioning and a digital twin will be a further AoI use case: Together, ruhlamat and machineering present digital order processing and demonstrate how it can be simplified and potential can be exploited. Finally, Thyssen Krupp Automation will present an example of digitalisation in assembly: the use of manufacturing execution systems (MES) will be demonstrated for new as well as existing facilities (greenfield and brownfield). MES functionalities in automated assembly are presented in detail on the basis of use cases. The advantages of shop floor data collection in automated assembly are made apparent, options for retrofitting existing facilities are demonstrated and the challenges of shop floor data collection in new and old facilities are
explained. What’s special about this use case? MES fulfils all of the requirements of an efficient production management system through the intelligent use of the customer’s production data.

40th Motek Anniversary During the 2022 Fall Trade Fair Season

The exhibition halls of the industry highlight featuring Motek/Bondexpo are filling up. Together with the 15th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, the 40th Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly is preparing for the fall event season in 2022. Exhibitors and expert visitors will meet in person for a face-to-face exchange of ideas in Stuttgart from the 4th through the 7th of October, 2022. The event’s motto – “Automation Intelligence for Production and Assembly” – is well rounded, as is its anniversary: Motek is celebrating its 40th birthday!

“The industry is eagerly anticipating its top event,” confirms Motek/Bondexpo project manager Rainer Bachert. “Already during the summer, we’ve exceeded registration levels reached for the event in 2021,” continues Bachert. “Many exhibitors firmed up their participation at this year’s trade fair right after the event in October 2021, and the halls have been filling up in recent weeks,” explains the project manager. “Traditionally, Motek/Bondexpo is a practice and user-oriented work event for expert visitors who are seeking concrete solutions for their production environments,” says Bettina Schall, managing director of trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. “The challenges currently faced by the industry sector are enormous, and the exhibitors at this year’s Motek/Bondexpo will be tackling them from numerous angles and demonstrating new approaches.”

Sustainability via Further Development in Digitalisation and Automation

Essentially important issues such as reduced consumption of energy and resources, environmental and climate protection, reliable suppliers, dependable intermediate production and short distances are driving modernisation and further technical innovations. Industry players in assembly and production automation are working full steam ahead to equip their plants more economically, more effectively, more efficiently and more reliably in order to cut costs and remain competitive. “That’s why it’s important to attend the trade fair in person, to engage in professional discussions on an equal footing, to explore practical solutions and to network,” explains Rainer Bachert. “Matching target groups meet up with each other at Motek/Bondexpo.”

In the fall of 2022, the industry meeting place in Stuttgart will bring together suppliers and users of industrial production and assembly automation, as well as bonding technology. Special significance will be attributed to the vastly important issue of sustainability this year, because modern, highly automated factories with intelligent components and control systems, as well as networked, self-learning processes, must increasingly adhere to the principle of sustainability – they have to be operated in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. As a result, digitalisation and automation of industrial manufacturing processes are becoming even more important in order to further increase the efficiency, environmental friendliness and economy of production operations. In this respect, Motek/Bondexpo is an important platform for making it possible to implement new developments and approaches to solutions in a user-friendly way, and for meeting current and future challenges.

A Highly Interested Expert Audience Right from the Very First Day

However, we won’t just be looking to the future from 4 to 7 October 2022 – we’ll also be looking back, because Motek is celebrating its 40th birthday. The first trade fair for assembly technology was launched in 1982 in Sindelfingen, initially on a relatively small scale. As of 1990, the event with highly dynamic growth was held in Sinsheim and since 2007, Stuttgart has been its highly adequate venue. “Motek can look back on an extremely impressive 40-year history on its way to becoming one of the most important industrial trade fairs in southern Germany,” notes Michael Blaß, managing director of the energy-chain systems division at igus GmbH in Cologne. “And it has never forgotten its original spirit, even to this day: bringing people together in dialogue and as a forum for innovation – directly oriented to the needs of the visitors who have approached us here at the event with very tangible challenges in recent decades. This has resulted in numerous long-standing customer relationships and exciting projects. We’re grateful to P. E. Schall for this, and we’re looking forward to a successful Motek together in 2022.”

Essential, Live Trade Fair with Dates Etched in Stone

Motek/Bondexpo focuses on the practical, future-oriented organisation of industrial manufacturing processes. This is why the trade fair is and will remain an ideal business platform for the capital goods industry. The exhibition will be supplemented by additional world-class presentations – for example the Arena of Integration (AoI) which will make digitalised, networked production processes tangible and intelligible once again in 2022, the Startup Area where young companies will present their innovations, and the expert forum for “Safety + Automation” which will be organised in cooperation with Pilz GmbH & Co. KG. Numerous exhibitors, expert visitors and other interested parties have already saved the trade fair dates – the industry will meet in Stuttgart from the 4th through the 7th of October, 2022!

Great Anticipation for Motek’s Anniversary During the Fall Trade Fair Season in 2022

The Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. In combination with the 15th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, the time-tested trade fair duo will take place in Stuttgart from the 4th through the 7th of October, 2022. There’s every reason to celebrate: trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG will celebrate their 60th company anniversary this year as well.

Motek/Bondexpo is getting ready for the fall trade fair season in 2022. Traditionally, Motek is a mirror image of current industrial trends because it showcases annual technological advances in the field of production automation in an exemplary fashion. “Since 1982, when Paul Eberhard Schall organised the first Motek in Sindelfingen, industrial assembly and handling technology has undergone rapid advancement thanks to countless technological innovations,” says Bettina Schall, managing director of Schall trade fair promoters. “Throughout the decades, Motek has portrayed this progress in each of its individual stages and carried it over into actual manufacturing practice. This specialised technical event with its consistently objective and application-oriented trade fair format is universally recognised, and it’s an essential business and knowledge platform for exhibitors and expert visitors alike. During the course of 40 years, it has been and will continue to be an industry highlight each and every autumn!”

Technological Change is a Constant ...

… because modern manufacturing continues to evolve day by day. It’s becoming more efficient, more economical and more flexible. It’s already characterised by automated processes and software-based machine functionality, and will continue to evolve in this direction to an ever greater extent in the future. Once again, the 40th Motek will point the way to the future together with the 15th Bondexpo as an integrated event. It will provide new answers to questions about holistic, integrated system solutions. “All relevant products and current manufacturing issues are presented at Motek, right on up to fully networked, digitalised and software-supported complete systems,” explains Rainer Bachert, who has been accompanying Motek for many years as project manager. “In the beginning, attention was of course focused on individual products and components for assembly and handling in conventional factories. Today, integrated, automated solutions with image processing are in demand. Artificial intelligence is long since an integral part of modern manufacturing operations because it supports the optimisation of processes,” says Bachert.

Impressive History of Automation

Alone the development of robotics for assembly and handling processes has an impressive history – within the context of Motek as well. The robots are out of their cages – they’ve become highly mobile and have conquered numerous new applications, because automation, increasing flexibility and individualisation have changed industrial processes in all industry sectors. Customised, product-specific adaptations have become a matter of course. The old rigidity has given way to agility. New markets, collaboration and cooperation amongst production personnel and robots are now routine daily practice. Robotics is growing at double-digit rates. “In the end of course it still depends on the component – its quality and performance. It’s still the machine’s most essential element, and will remain so in the future as well,” notes Rainer Bachert. “But in this regard, digitalisation, autonomous operation and intelligence have led to impressive development in terms of real-time control, data analysis, preventive maintenance and ultimately the conservation of resources,” says the experienced project manager.

Networking of Exhibitors and Processes

Together with the 15th Bondexpo, the 40th Motek is getting ready for the fall trade fair season in 2022. All of the industry’s players are looking forward to the reunion and the personal exchange of technical ideas at the exhibits. Exhibitors will meet up with precisely the target groups they’re looking for – above all representatives of small and mid-sized businesses who want to make the transition to digitalised production. Once again this year, the Arena of Integration (AoI) will make digitalised, networked production processes transparent and comprehensible, and link various processes from different exhibitors.

The scheduled dates from 4 to 7 October 2022 in Stuttgart represent a fixed appointment in the industry sector’s calendar, because the right people get together traditionally at Motek/Bondexpo. Based on past experience, project manager Rainer Bachert knows that “Ideally matched contact persons come together here.” The trade fair duo is a must for system integrators and customers who want to introduce and further develop automated handling processes. In an exchange of technical ideas and experience, exhibitors and visitors jointly shape the further evolution of industrial manufacturing processes. This is why Motek/Bondexpo is and will remain an ideal business platform for the capital goods industry.

Motek/Bondexpo Industry Highlight On the Way for 2022!

In roughly five months, the time will come again: as a proven, traditional trade fair highlight for automation in assembly and production, Motek/Bondexpo will open its doors in Stuttgart and celebrate Motek’s 40th anniversary from the 4th through the 7th of October, 2022.

Frickenhausen, 28 April 2022 – Together with the 15th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, the 40th Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly is preparing for the fall event season in 2022. All industry players are looking forward to this reunion. The proven trade fair duo will once again present a broad range of solutions in the field of “automation intelligence for production and assembly”.

“Motek is one of the most important events of the year for IEF-Werner,” affirms Ulrich Moser, head of marketing and sales controlling at IEF-Werner GmbH in Furtwangen, Germany. “Participation provides IEF-Werner with an extensive spectrum of functions. In particular we can listen to our customers face to face and find out first-hand what’s on their minds. Our customers inform us how we’re doing in terms of customer orientation, service, productivity and technological strength, and we use this to enhance our knowledge and innovation edge, which also benefits the users.”

Spectacular Technological Development over Four Decades

IEF-Werner has been an exhibitor right from the very beginning and was already on hand when Motek was first launched in Sindelfingen in 1982. Since then, automation in production and assembly has enjoyed impressive progress and its issues have been reflected consistently at Motek over four decades. 1982 – no internet, no smartphones, no e-mail – it was the year when the first home computers with floppy discs appeared in our living rooms, and a lot has happened in the meantime. In the early years, Motek was mostly about individual products and components for industrial assembly and handling in conventional factories, but today the focus is on holistic, integrated system solutions. Today’s factory is long since on the road to the future – with automated processes and software-based machine functionality. Digitalisation and networking are major topics in all sectors. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been part of the production process for quite some time now because it supports process optimisation. And thus at Motek 2022, AI will be an issue across the board and in numerous systems – how processes in manufacturing can be designed economically and efficiently using integrated AI algorithms will be demonstrated in a pragmatic, highly practical manner.

Being There Is What Matters

Together with Bondexpo, Motek continues to write exemplary, future-oriented industrial history. As in the past, the community of experts for automation in production and assembly, as well as bonding technology, will experience the entire portfolio of topics covering both hardware and software. Robotics is also a well-established theme at Motek/Bondexpo. The use of robots is increasing with a double-digit growth rate. New applications, collaboration and cooperation with operators and amongst the robots themselves, increasing automation rates and autonomous control thanks to AI are some of the factors which are driving robotics. DENSO Robotics will also be represented at Motek/Bondexpo 2022 with collaborative robots: “As a leading manufacturer of industrial robots for handling and assembly technology, DENSO Robotics Europe has exhibited at Motek in Stuttgart for many years,” says Carsten Busch, product manager for cobots at DENSO. “We’re looking forward to presenting our new products once again this year, meeting with lots of customers again, establishing new contacts and discussing specific plans in face-to-face meetings.”

Practical Integration of New Technologies

The trade fair promoters at Schall have successfully maintained Motek’s concept for four decades – a technically focussed, application-oriented event format for industrial practice. It presents all products and issues with relevance for industrial manufacturing, right up to fully networked, digitalised and software-supported overall systems – the factory of the future. The specific configuration of industrial manufacturing processes is at the centre of attention for exhibitors and expert visitors at Motek/Bondexpo. Time-tested interaction between Motek and Bondexpo portrays the processes and their further development by means of digitalisation and automation. This is why Motek/Bondexpo is and will remain an ideal business platform for the capital goods industry.”

Once again in the fall of 2022, participants at the Arena of Integration (AoI) will render digitalised, networked production processes tangible and comprehensible, and ground them in actual practice. The goal of the AoI is to network various processes run by different exhibitors with each other into a single, overall industrial system. Confirmation has already been received for six exhibits.
