The 38th Motek – International Trade Fair for Production and Assembly Automation – goes from 07. to October 10, 2019 in Stuttgart. A welcome must-attend event for all designers, users and production managers looking for practical solutions for industrial manufacturing and assembly. Motek represents the complete world of rapidly changing process automation – it is the process chain trade fair par excellence!

As has been the case in the past, trade fair promoter P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG has designed Motek to be application and practice-oriented, and will be flanking the industry event with Bondexpo – International Trade Fair for Adhesive Bonding Technology – for the 13th time. At Motek, designers and users will find basic systems, details and components as well as cross-divisional solution approaches, networked and interlinked systems including software and industrial communication. The show is a reflection of a highly dynamically changing industrial manufacturing practice. At no other trade show can trade visitors get such a comprehensive picture of the latest products and systems for industrial production and assembly automation.

Production process mapped throughout

Trade visitors can work their way successively through the topic of production and assembly automation, starting with incoming materials and covering all process steps including quality assurance, labeling, packaging, picking and intralogistics – or turn directly to a specific topic. The thematic structure, which is consistently oriented towards everyday production, ensures quick orientation and short distances for exhibitors and trade visitors alike. Visitors to the trade fair will find assembly systems, handling technology, robots, joining and screwdriving technology, material flow and conveyor systems, measuring and testing technology as well as drives, controls, sensors and software. But no product, no plant stands alone anymore – the trade visitor is interested in the manufacturing process as a complete system within the framework of an advancing, continuous digitalization of automation. He is looking for turnkey system solutions for modern production and will find answers at Motek to all the current questions that concern him on the way to the Smart Factory.

Digitization and virtualization

At Motek, digitization is neither a buzzword nor a marketing tool, but content. After all, networking, big data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things have long since arrived in many companies in industrial manufacturing; many trade visitors will have unanswered questions about this, to which they will find practical answers at Motek. Topics such as software for plant design, digital twins, virtual reality, data security and digital services will be given a platform by many exhibitors as well as in the context of special shows and specialist forums.

Robotics and handling technology

The trade fair duo of Motek and Bondexpo is attended by many well-known exhibitors from the robotics and handling systems sectors. Trade visitors will find these Motek core topics prepared in detail – the demand for robotics and automation continues to be high, human-machine collaboration is increasingly becoming part of everyday practice, and the associated topic of safety is more topical than ever.

Seven months before the industry event, Motek project manager Rainer Bachert from trade fair company Schall GmbH & Co KG has his hands full with registrations and stand planning. The trade show team expects about 1,000 exhibitors on 63,000 square meters of hall space.
