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.
