The Place to be for Robotics - automatica, June 16–19, 2020

ISR 2020 is organized in conjunction with automatica, the leading exhibition for smart automation and robotics.


ISR 2020 is organized in conjunction with automatica, the leading exhibition for smart automation and robotics.

automatica is the leading marketplace for automated production. It features the world‘s largest range of robotics, assembly solutions, machine vision systems and components. It gives companies from all branches of industry access to innovations, knowledge and trends with a great deal of business relevance. As the digital shift continues, automatica ensures market transparency and provides orientation with a clear objective: Being able to manufacture higher-quality products with greater efficiency. Professional service robotics will again be presented with its own exhibition sector. Here, manufacturers of service robots, service robotics components and turnkey products as well as renowned research organizations will present marketable products and innovative developments. Again, the simultaneous organization of the events will provide a number of benefits to the participants: The conference offers the latest results in the fields of research and development in robotics as well as in new applications.The trade show automatica will present the latest products, systems and components for assembly and handling, machine vision, industrial robotics and service robotics.
