Exhibition for productive automation at cheaper prices

A huge number of projects planned across the automation and robotics industry for 2009 are focussed on increasing productivity but reducing production costs, according to the organisers of Forum Robotic 2009 in Germany.

Organised by the Association of German Engineers and Messe Bremen, Forum Robotic 2009 will be largely focussed on automation solutions for the automotive industry, electronics manufacturers, and food and beverage producers who need to output more products than ever at a radically-reduced cost.

“We are currently hearing from a number of industries that extensive projects are planned for 2009 with the aim of raising productivity while at the same time reducing production costs,“ said the organisers of the event.

Automation and robotics solutions for these types of companies will be on exhibition at the event, which runs from 12th to 13th February 2009 at the Bremen Exhibition Centre in Germany.

“A downturn in the economy can only be overcome by returning quickly to one’s own virtues. That is why the industry now has to make the most of the time it has to gear itself quickly to its future challenges — from product development to production,“ said the event’s project manager, Dr Hubert Borgmann.

“Forum Robotic 2009 offers numerous concrete starting points for this. A glance at the Exhibition and Congress Programme at shows just how much power there is behind this event: not only due to the competence of our project partner VDI but also that of the Bremen automotive industry together with its automation partners.”

The exhibition will also focus on robots in the future and their move toward new application fields: robotic solutions with integrated vision systems, solutions for the food and beverages sector, new ways of programming welding cells, central computer concepts for flexible testing stations, measuring robots for absolute measurement of 3D positioning, flexible production systems for fibre reinforced construction, robots for the latest joining techniques.

Another highlight will be the comparison of several automation platforms with integrated robot controls. Also on display will be the possibilities of transferring know-how from the production of fibre reinforced parts in the aviation sector to large-scale production in the automotive and components supply industries.
