In the autumn of 2023, the traditional Motek/Bondexpo dual trade fair will be one of the highlights of the industry. From 10 to 13 October 2023, the 41st Motek – international trade fair for production and assembly automation – will open its doors together with the 16th Bondexpo – international trade fair for adhesive bonding technology. The focus is on industrial production as a complete system – ranging from the components, assemblies and subsystems to complete systems.

A clear profile, compelling topics, practical solutions – Motek/Bondexpo provides designers, investors and buyers with everything they need to improve their production and make it more profitable. Suppliers and users will meet and discuss practical, feasible solutions in the usual down-to-earth working atmosphere. By tradition, Motek/Bondexpo is a trade event that focuses on a specific topic. It covers the entire process chain for cost-effective production and assembly automation – from components and assemblies to subsystems and complete systems.

Try out cobots at first hand

Exhibitors and trade visitors alike appreciate that “We are in a decade of transformation – and automation is proving to be a decisive tool for leveraging this change. Which is why we are all the more pleased to use Motek as a major platform for presenting our extensive product range and our latest innovations for flexible production”, says Jörg Rommelfanger, Head of ABB’s Robotics Division in Germany. The robotics specialist will be presenting the new GoFa cobots to industry visitors. ABB will also present their Partner Ecosystem for providing plug-and-play packages for all ABB robots and machine safety solutions from their Electrification business unit. The exhibitor also pointed out that the cobots shown at Motek will encourage visitors to touch them and try them out: “All visitors will have the opportunity to leave our booth as a cobot programmer”, promises Rommelfanger.

Outstanding platform for technical discussions and business success

The Motek/Bondexpo is also a must for the company Rodriguez from Eschweiler, Germany. “Motek is an important industry gathering for us. We look forward to the technical discussions and the mutual exchange of ideas and innovations on the market”, says Gunther Schulz, Managing Director of Rodriguez. The supplier of thin-section and special bearings will present a number of trade fair highlights from the fields of precision bearings and linear technology in Stuttgart. Martin Mechanic from Nagold in the Black Forest will also be among the exhibitors. “For us as mechanical engineers, Motek is always a great opportunity to talk about new projects”, affirms Claus Martin, Managing Director of Martin Mechanic. “Good conversations and interesting enquiries often develop into lasting business relationships. Motek has contributed to our success for many years.”

Three main topics form this year’s theme

“Motek, along with the fully integrated Bondexpo, takes a holistic view of manufacturing processes – from the component to the complete plant”, explains Motek project manager Rainer Bachert. “In line with the pragmatic, practical orientation and dependably clear theme of the trade fair, we are focussing this year on three pillars – networked, intelligent production components, assembly support systems and solutions for easy implementation and commissioning. All the technological innovations of the past few years will be represented with practical examples – increasing digitalisation and networking of production components, the boom in intelligent assembly and assembly support systems and plug-and-play solutions for immediate implementation and commissioning of systems. “Software, simulation and AI-supported processes permeate all three main topics”, explains the project manager. “The aim in all areas is to make production more efficient, safer, more reliable and more economical. A common thread running through all areas is resource conservation and sustainability. These are huge fields of activity and pose immense challenges that have to be overcome by the manufacturing companies. Motek will present practical approached to our industry visitors.” The Motek/Bondexpo trade fair concept shows companies from all sectors how to get started with the automation and digitalisation of products and processes. “The trade fair combines pragmatism, practicality and future viability”, observes Bettina Schall, Managing Director of trade fair organiser P. E. Schall. “We’re looking forward to the personal communication between experts from the industry and cordially invite all suppliers and users of modern production automation to this year’s Motek/Bondexpo, which will be held from 10 to 13 October 2023 in Stuttgart.”
