We are further expanding our digital presence with the virtual automatica Talk format. This interactive online event series offers additional orientational knowledge and constructive exchange during the time between trade fairs. Top-class experts, suppliers and users will shed light on current issues and trends in robotics and automation from various perspectives. Welcome to the fifth edition of the German-language automatica Talk on March 18, 2021 from 10:00 to 11:15. This edition’s topic:
IThe use of robots is no longer exclusive to large companies with mass production facilities. On the contrary: The ‘democratization of robotics’ is about to begin. Smaller companies and the craft sector are also increasingly turning to robots and cobots – and for good reasons:
New concepts have greatly reduced the integration effort – making robotics applications economical for SMEs and the craft sector
Learn more about the successful use of robots in SMEs, revolutionary programming tools, the advantages of Quick Checks and the exciting best practice example of deinSchrank.de.
Teamwork between users and researchers accelerates the adoption of new automation technologies. To get started, we offer SMEs low-threshold Quick Checks. We use these to test implementation ideas for feasibility and further develop them together with the companies.

Robots can be beneficial in small production facilities and provide good support to small companies. Any successful automation project requires access to a large and proven product portfolio with smart features, ideally from a single source. Locally available competent partners with the ability to provide solutions and quick support if and when required are essential for the customer. Easy-to-use technology with reliable functionality lowers the entry barriers for using robots in automation tasks.
