In the trade fair fall of 2023, the traditional duo of Motek/Bondexpo will be one of the highlights of the industry. From October 10 to 13, 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 – from components, assemblies and subsystems to complete systems.

Clear profile, strong themes, practical solutions – Motek/Bondexpo gives designers, investment decision-makers and buyers everything they need to improve their manufacturing and make it more economical. In the usual pragmatic working atmosphere, suppliers and users meet to discuss practical, implementable solutions. By tradition, Motek/Bondexpo is a topic-focused trade event that covers the entire process chain for economical production and assembly automation – from components and assemblies as well as subsystems to 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 with the fully integrated Bondexpo takes a holistic view of the manufacturing processes from the component to the complete plant,” explains Motek project manager Rainer Bachert. “Based on the pragmatic practical relevance and reliable topic positioning of this trade show, this year’s focus is on three pillars – “networked, smart production components”, “assembly assistance systems” and “solutions for easy implementability and commissioning”. All the technological innovations of recent years are mapped here in a practical way – advancing digitization and networked production components, increasingly intelligent assembly and assembly assistance systems, and plug-and-play solutions for the immediate implementability and commissioning of systems. “Software, simulation and AI-supported processes permeate all three main topics,” explains the project manager. “Making production more efficient, safer, more reliable and more economical applies to all areas. Resource conservation and sustainability run like a red thread through all areas. These are major fields of activity and immense challenges that manufacturing operations have to master. At Motek, the industry will find practical approaches.”

The trade fair concept of Motek/Bondexpo shows companies from all industries a suitable path for easy entry into the automation and digitization of products and processes. “The trade fair combines pragmatism, practicality and future viability,” notes Bettina Schall, Managing Director of trade fair promoter P. E. Schall. “We look forward to the face-to-face technical exchange of the industry community and cordially invite all suppliers and users of modern production automation to this year’s Motek/Bondexpo from October 10 to 13, 2023 in Stuttgart, Germany.”
