Automatica 2018 has come and gone. The leading conference about smart automation and robotics attracted 46,000 attendees and 890 exhibitors in Munich, both increases of 7 percent over the 2016 event.
The next Automatica will take place June 16-19, 2020 in Munich, and we can’t wait to head back and see the innovations that continue to propel the industry forward.
We scoured Automatica and already shared our main takeaways from the event, including the enormous presence of cobots, improved programming methods, and the wide deployment of bin-picking applications. We’ll also soon have a piece about the innovation in grippers from the show.
But for now, let’s take a look at the robots that left a lasting first impression on us. This isn’t an exhaustive list, of course, as there were 890 exhibitors at Automatica. Let us know in the comments what robots impressed you the most.
