Automation UK: new tradeshow debuts

A new trade show, Automation UK, will debut this year, with a focus on robotics, including cobots, and automation. It will be held in Coventry, England, on June 20-21, 2023.

The new exhibition is organized by BARA (British Association of Robotics and Automation) and the PPMA (Processing and Packaging Machine Association), the umbrella organization representing over 550 member companies in the processing and packaging machinery industry in the UK.

Schubert is one of the event’s founding exhibitors. Mark Stepney, Managing Director of Schubert UK, is BARA’s Vice Chairman and was elected to the PPMA Board three years ago. Since then, he and his team at Schubert have been working towards the Automation UK event and he explains: “Automation and robotics are among the key technologies that are successfully driving the UK economy into the future. The widespread shortage of skilled workers and recurring supply bottlenecks are currently posing major challenges for companies. We can only meet these challenges with innovations that automate production and make it more efficient, leaner and more cost-effective.”

At the exhibition, Schubert will showcase its cobot, which is now ready for series production, a bar packer with a new type of infeed, the new Box Motion unit in the flowpacker’s cross-sealing system and Schubert’s “Packaging Perspectives” customer service for sustainable packaging.
