RoboJob has been eagerly awaiting this for months: the first trade fair participations in more than a year and a half. Expectations were more than exceeded at both Global Industrie in Lyon and Machineering in Brussels. On to Gorinchem, where the Metavak trade fair will soon take place.

Global Industrie in Lyon was the first trade fair to be attended by the international market leader in CNC automation "since Corona". It was also the first time that RoboJob had its own stand at the fair. "Still quite exciting," says CEO Helmut De Roovere. "We have already participated in Global Industrie several times, but always in cooperation with our partners Yamazaki Mazak and Degomme-Boccard. There we were again, with our Tower that was set up this time with the new Mazak CV5-500. But also for the first time with our own exhibition stand."

After a hesitant start on Monday, 6 September - Global Industrie normally starts on a Tuesday - the exhibition floor was completely full on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Many visitors also knew how to find their way to RoboJob. We’ve noticed for a long time that the demand for automation has increased significantly since Corona," says De Roovere. "That was confirmed again in Lyon, and also in Brussels for that matter." In Brussels, the starting shot for Machineering was fired on Wednesday, 8 September. Here, too, it was a cautious start, with Thursday and Friday the busiest days. “It was a great pleasure to see our customers once again. We also welcomed a lot of new faces, and we hope to do the same soon in Gorinchem."

From 5 to 7 October, RoboJob will once again be taking part in the Metavak fair in Gorinchem. There it will be showing up with the Turn-Assist 270i. Partner Humacs-Krabbendam is also showing a Turn-Assist 200i from RoboJob.

Metavak takes place in the ‘Evenementenhal’ (Events Hall) at Gorinchem. You can find RoboJob on Stand K 138. Metavak will be open daily from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
