Motek/Bondexpo 2024: “Future-Proof, Efficient Automation”

Motek Internationale Fachmesse für Produktions- und Montageautomatisierung Motek 2023 039 scaled uai

Future-proof, efficient solutions and systems help manufacturing companies implement automation technology quickly and easily. Only in this way can users benefit from automation in the long run. As a traditional trade fair highlight, Motek/Bondexpo will explore this subject matter in Stuttgart from the 8th through the 11th of October, 2024. Industrial suppliers and users meet at the time-tested industry platform to improve processes and make them more economical.

The dates for the next trade fair highlight for industrial manufacturing companies are firmly scheduled: the 42nd Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly, together with the 17th Bondexpo international trade fair for bonding technology, will take place in Stuttgart from the 8th through the 11th of October, 2024. “Anyone from the manufacturing industries looking to automate a process or function, regardless of the sector, will find the right components and solutions at Motek/Bondexpo,” says Rainer Bachert, longstanding project manager for Motek/Bondexpo at trade fair promoters P. E. Schall. “The exhibitors are suppliers and manufacturers of components, products, modules and complete systems for economical and sustainable automation in production and assembly. They provide manufacturing companies with all the solutions they need to meet the challenges posed by industrial operations,” explains Bachert. “Large numbers of exhibitors have been registering in recent weeks in order to nail down their preferred locations.”

Registrations are Now Being Finalised

Motek/Bondexpo covers the entire process sequence for economical production and assembly automation – from components and modules, right on up to subsystems and complete solutions. It’s targeted at manufacturing companies in all sectors – machine building, equipment and systems manufacturing, automotive engineering and vehicle production, sheet metal working, plastics processing, metalworking and processing, woodworking, electronics and electrical engineering, as well as users in the fields of laboratory automation, healthcare and medical technology. “Profitability, efficiency and flexibility are top priorities for all of these target groups in order to remain successful on the market,” emphasises the project manager. “The goal is thus automation. But it has to be easy to implement, and it needs to be based on future-oriented solutions. And this is what Motek/Bondexpo is all about.”

Focus On Four Main Topics

The range of topics addressed by Motek/Bondexpo is focused primarily on four main aspects: networked, smart production components and systems such as grippers and components with sensors, handling systems, handling solutions, intelligent screwdriving technology, smart linear technology, mechatronic systems, smart drives and feed components for parts transport. The second thematic segment consists of assembly assistance systems including systems for manual and semi-automatic workstations, assisted picking and assembly, software-supported operator guidance, automatic bin-picking, collaborative work with cobots, robotics and automated parts feeding and discharge. A third thematic focal point covers solutions for easy implementation and commissioning including planning software, simulation software, solutions for digital twins, easy-to-install plug-and-play solutions and starter kits for manufacturing companies. The fourth topic involves object recognition and image processing equipment such as sensors, cameras and identification systems for inline parts detection targeted at position monitoring and position control, as well as visualisation solutions including software and AI support.

Clear-Cut Profile with Thematic Structure Throughout the Process Sequence

“Based on tradition and extensive experience, the Motek/Bondexpo trade fair concept is distinguished by thematic clarity and reliability,” emphasises Bettina Schall, managing director of trade fair promoters P. E. Schall. “Our expert visitors welcome the highly practical exchange of ideas in a working atmosphere. Production automation experts praise the pragmatic, solutions-orientated trade fair format. Thanks to Motek/Bondexpo’s well-defined profile, and a its thematic structure which covers the entire value creation process in industrial manufacturing, suppliers and users work together successfully and develop tangible results,” says the managing director of the trade fair promoters with confidence.

Expert visitors at Motek/Bondexpo need future-proof products and systems which offer substantial benefits and are easy to implement – but they also expect an informative and time-efficient trade fair visit with an adequate supplementary programme. “Preparation is now underway in this direction. We’re looking forward to a brilliant trade fair highlight in the fall of 2024,” says Bettina Schall. “The trade fair concept and venue offer ideal conditions for a top event for the manufacturing industry. We’re already looking forward to meeting up with all of the stakeholders at Motek/Bondexpo 2024 in Stuttgart!”
