The halls of the industry highlight Motek/Bondexpo are filling up. The 40th Motek – international trade fair for production and assembly automation – is preparing together with the 15th Bondexpo – international trade fair for adhesive technology – at the autumn of the fair. From 04. to 07. October 2022, exhibitors and trade visitors will meet for live exchanges in Stuttgart. The motto “Automation Intelligence for Production and Assembly” is a round thing, and the anniversary is also: Motek celebrates its 40th anniversary. Birthday!
“The industry is expecting the top event,” confirms Reiner Bachert, project manager of Motek/Bondexpo. “We have already overtaken the registration status of the 2021 fair in the summer weeks,” Bachert continues. “Many exhibitors have already made this year’s appearance right after the fair in October 2021, and these weeks the halls are filling up,” informs the project manager. “By tradition, Motek/Bondexpo is a practice-oriented, user-oriented work fair for trade visitors who are looking for concrete solutions for their production environment,” says Bettina Schall, Managing Director of the trade fair organizer P. E. Sound. “The current challenges of our industry are enormous, and here our exhibitors of this year’s Motek/Bondexpo will start in many places and show new ways.”
Sustainability through further development of digitization and automation
The essential topics of energy saving, resource conservation, environmental and climate protection, reliable suppliers, safe intermediate productions and short distances are drivers of modernization and further technical innovations. The industry players in assembly and production automation are working hard to equip their plants even more economically, even more economically, even more efficiently, even more reliably in order to save costs and remain competitive. “That’s why it’s important to be personally at the fair, to have expert discussions on an equal footing, to discuss practical solutions and to network,” explains Rainer Bachert. The right target groups meet at Motek/Bondexpo.
The industry meeting point in the trade fair autumn 2022 in Stuttgart brings together suppliers and users of industrial production and assembly automation as well as adhesive technology. The large and important topic of sustainability will be given special importance this year. Because the modern, highly automated factory with intelligent components and controls as well as networked, self-learning processes must increasingly follow the principle of sustainability – it must operate in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. In turn, the digitization and automation of industrial manufacturing processes are given even more importance in order to make production even more efficient, gentle and economical. For this purpose, Motek/Bondexpo is an important platform for making new developments and solutions feasible in an user-friendly manner and to mastering the challenges of the present and the future.
A highly interesting professional audience from day one
From 04. to 07. October 2022, however, not only should be looked into the future – a look back is also permitted, because Motek celebrates its 40th birthday. Birthday. The start was made in 1982 by the first assembly technology fair in Sindelfingen, initially in a manageable setting. From 1990, Sinsheim was the location of this fair with highly dynamic growth; Stuttgart has been the right location since 2007. “Motek can look back on an extremely impressive 40-year history on the way to one of the most important industrial fairs in southern Germany,” states Michael Blaß, Managing Director e-kettensysteme of igus GmbH in Cologne. “She has never lost sight of her character, and this still applies today: bringing people together for dialogue and being a forum for innovation. Directly oriented to the needs of the visitors who have approached us here at the fair with very tangible challenges in recent decades. This resulted in many long-standing customer relationships and exciting projects. We thank P.E. for that. Schall and look forward to a successful Motek 2022 together.”
Indispensable face-to-face fair firmly noted in the calendar
Motek/Bondexpo is about the practical and future-oriented design of industrial manufacturing processes. Therefore, this trade fair is and remains an ideal business platform for the capital goods industry. The exhibition will be supplemented by top-class further presentations – such as the Arena of Integration (AoI), which also makes digitized, networked production processes visible and understandable in 2022, the start-up area, where young companies show their innovations and the specialist forum “Security + Automation”, which is organized in cooperation with Pilz from Ostfildern. The trade fair date is fixed in the calendar for many exhibitors, trade visitors and interested parties – the industry meets from 04. to 07. October 2022 in Stuttgart!
