Automatica 2004, a new exhibition dedicated to industrial automation, attracted 566 exhibitors from 22 countries, the first time it was held in Munich. Exhibits revealed a growing use of robots for inspection and measurement operations, particularly for automotive applications. In addition, assembly systems are becoming increasingly standardised and modularised, and robot installations are becoming more and more compact.
