A fresh start for the industry: automatica 2022 was the first in-person event after a four-year break due to the pandemic—and it was able to once again confirm its leading position. The next leading exhibition will be held out of schedule together with LASER World of PHOTONICS before returning to its usual two-year cycle from 2023 onwards.

The past few years have shown that the world is changing faster than ever. Related issues and challenges are increasingly manifesting themselves in economics, society, and politics. As a result, the adoption of digitization and Industry 4.0 has gained unprecedented speed and the significance of automation and robotics has increased rapidly due to soaring demand. At the same time, climate protection has finally become an established item on the global to-do list.
It is not just a theoretical consideration that vulnerable logistics networks can bring industrial production to a grinding halt. The current supply issues affect everyone – and are much more than a luxury problem in sectors such as energy or healthcare. But how can we make supply chains less vulnerable? How can smart automation and digital networking contribute to greater economy, independency, and sustainability in European production facilities? What kind of ‘green’ technologies and systems do we need to make production energy-efficient and carbon-neutral? Smart AI-based production lines using robots, cobots, mobile robotic systems, and AGVs have what it takes.
automatica 2023 will show what this looks like in practice. The leading exhibition for smart automation and robotics covers the entire value chain: from components to systems, from services to applications—across all manufacturing sectors and in line with our vision of autonomous production. The trend topics? Digital Integration, Sustainable Production and Future of Work.
Let us make our way into an exciting and successful future together!
With their collaboration, automatica and VDMA Robotics and Automation want to draw attention to the potential of robotics for the future of our economy and society: Energy efficiency, resource conservation, sustainability or overcoming supply chain bottlenecks and skills shortages will make autonomous systems indispensable in the future.
