EFAC will also be present as an exhibitor in Hall A1, Stand 120.

AUTOMATICA is the international trade fair that brings together all areas of robotics and automation under one roof and showcases the complete range of robotics, assembly and handling technology, machine vision and associated technologies. A further asset is the leading trade fair for solar technologies, the INTERSOLAR 2008, which takes place in parallel during two of the four exhibition days. The photovoltaics industry has become a major user of assembly and handling technology to raise the quality and cut production costs of solar cells. More assembly technology highlights will be presented at the AUTOMATICA Forum in hall B1.

"The European Factory Automation Committee fully supports the AUTOMATICA as a premier international showcase for innovative assembly and handling technology covering the whole range of technologies - from components to complete assembly solutions. AUTOMATICA is unique in its truly international scope and its focus on solutions that enable productivity gains for users in all industries.", comments Alessandro Torsoli, EFAC President and Managing Director of ABL AUTOMAZIONE, Italy.
