Experience the future with innovative robotics and groundbreaking examples of man-machine collaboration. Exciting encounters: See the latest industrial and service models in actual use directly at the fair.
Robotics, a key technology in smart automation, is in the midst of a boom. In the meantime, the fascinating characters from science fiction have become reality. Equipped with modern safety technology, collaboration-capable robots are making their way into factories in ever increasing numbers. As "Cobots" they work hand in hand with their human colleagues.
Industrial robots are a significant competitive factor in industrial manufacturing processes. As a key element in automation, they are the key factors in strategic business decisions. Automation solutions involving robotics are already being used successfully in major corporations and SMEs alike.
automatica is the only trade fair that gives manufacturers a platform for presenting their extensive range of robot technology in both the industrial robotics and service robotics sectors.
Explore current and future scenarios for using robotics in your company:

See the latest generation of professional service robotics at automatica. Get fascinating insights into everyday life in the future: Service robots can be used as assisting nursing carts in hospitals, as inventory assistants in stores, as driverless transport systems and as personal helpers for people.
From the laboratory into the working world: Professional service robotics is developing at a rapid pace. Prototypes developed by the scientific sector are evolving and can now be used in commercial applications. automatica is supporting this trend by giving service robotics its own exhibition sector.
The exhibition sector for service robotics allows manufacturers of service robots, service robotics components and turnkey products as well as renowned research organizations to present marketable products and innovative developments.
B2B applications for service robotics at automatica:
The Service Robotics Demopark allows you to safely touch robots and interact with them. You will see how robots can help you to perform tasks or perform them autonomously. In the Service Robotics Show, you will experience the latest robot systems in exciting live demonstrations. All presentations will also be projected onto an oversized screen.
Our partnerships with the industry's most important trade associations and relevant media attest to the fair's superior expertise and outstanding contacts.
Within the VDMA, the Robotics + Automation Association represents the interests of approximately 280 companies that are providers of Integrated Assembly Solutions (assembly and handling technology), Machine Vision and Robotics.
The EUnited Robotics trade association was founded in 2004. Its members are robotics manufacturers, suppliers and system integrators in Europe. EUnited Robotics gives all associated partners—from research institutes to national trade associations and users—an interdisciplinary platform.
Founded in 1987, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) is the worldwide trade association for the robotics industry and robotics research institutes. It serves as an umbrella association for all national robotics trade associations. The IFR also coordinates the annual International Symposium on Robotics (ISR) and publishes the “World Robotics” statistics once a year.
