The event will showcase the latest technologies and solutions in the field of smart automation. Industry players from around the world are expected to attend this trade fair.

Automatica is one of the leading exhibitions for smart automation and robotics. Scheduled to be held from 9-22 June 2018 in Munich, Germany, the show will focus on optimising production by manufacturing high-quality products quicker and in a cost-efficient manner.

The main themes of Automatica’s four-day event will revolve around digital transformation in manufacturing, digital networking on the road to the Internet of things and the efficient use of resources. Held every two years, the show will exhibit a range of industrial automation solutions including robotics, assembly solutions, machine vision systems and components for different types of industries such as the automotive, electronics, metal-working, pharmaceutical, chemical industry and many more under one roof.

Core sectors

Automatica will cover six main sectors, namely: assembly and handling, machine vision, robotics, service robotics, It2 industry and smart maintenance.

Six fields of action for successful automation

R&D

Six fields of action for successful automation

03/05/2018 - With its current study on “Successfully Automating Toolmaking”, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, together with the WBA Tooling Academy Aachen, has carried out an investigation on the capabilities and the problems with automation in toolmaking. read...

Assembly and handling

Assembly technology companies in this segment will showcase intelligent and innovative systems and components for assembling, joining, mounting and reshaping. Here, visitors can interact with exhibitors to discover the right solution and software for their complex production processes across diverse industries in order to achieve maximum productivity. This area will also include solutions for measuring, testing, dispensing and marking.

Machine vision

The machine vision and inspection market is expected to reach USD14.85 bn by 2022, according to a report by Credence Research Inc. This shows the huge potential of this market. At Automatica, measuring systems for machine vision, components for machine vision, machine vision for specific applications and embedded vision systems will be displayed in this specialised area.

Smart solution for plastics processing: Condition and process monitoring

Smart solution for plastics processing: Condition and process monitoring

05/02/2018 - For optimal surface quality of injection-moulded products, temperature is a viable factor. The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing, Engineering and Automation (IPA) and GWK (Gesellschaft Wärme Kühltechnik) have developed a monitoring solution for temperature control systems. read...

Robotics

When we speak about smart automation in an “Industry 4.0” environment, robotics cannot be left out. Robotics carry out the most tedious work with precision and also increase production in a shorter time. The show will exhibit different types of industrial robots based on their designs such as gantry robots, Scara robots, vertically articulated robots, articulated robots, parallel link robots, micro robots and special designs. In addition, numerous components for robot systems including jigs and fixtures, tool-changing systems, measurement systems, peripherals and many other elements will also be highlighted at the event.

Service robotics

The service robotics market is expected to reach USD23.90 bn by 2022, and a CAGR of 15.18 % between 2016 and 2022, according to a report by market research company, Markets and Markets. In order to leverage this growing market, exhibitors at the service robotics section will hold live sessions to demonstrate their innovative technologies. In the last edition of Automatica, about 76 exhibitors from 19 countries showcased their innovations and this year the number is expected to increase.

It2 industry

IT solutions are vital for factories of the future and this segment will feature just that. The latest innovations and solutions in the field of automated production will be demonstrated to fair visitors.

Smart maintenance

When dealing with smart factories, smart maintenance is required. Smart maintenance is implemented to achieve a high level of safety, availability and profit in operation and maintenance of subsea production systems. This segment includes the framework for intelligent predictive maintenance, use of artificial intelligence for condition monitoring purposes and the progression of technologies for smart maintenance.

Global industry players are eyeing for the best technologies in the market to improve their production lines with greater efficiency. In such a scenario, Automatica will be witnessing heavy footfalls and attracting business opportunities in large numbers.
