Automatica 2014: More leads than ever before

Boudry, June 2014. – Mikron Automation attended the Automatica International Trade Fair for Automation and Mechatronics in Munich from 3-6 June 2014. The division presented its full range of automation platforms for the first time, on a floor area of 120 square metres. There has never been more interest in Mikron Automation.

As a special highlight, Mikron Automation launched a number of new developments at Automatica: The latest version of its established Mikron G05 assembly cell – with a new touchscreen HMI (Human Machine Interface) – and the third generation of the highly flexible feeding system Mikron Polyfeed, that features a new Cartesian high-speed robot delivering a previously unmatched feeding rate. The division also presented its new modular and flexible high-performance Mikron Tray Handler – which also benefits from a Cartesian high-speed robot. These new products presented together with the Mikron EcoLine assembly cell will enable Mikron Automation's customers to increase their productivity even further.

A complete success
Automatica takes place every two years and is the most important trade fair worldwide for Mikron Automation. This year, Automatica welcomed 34,500 visitors (10% more than the previous year) from over 100 countries, with 731 exhibitors from 42 countries presenting their innovations.
