EMO Hannover is the world's largest trade fair for the metal works industry. This year, it was held from September 19 to 24.
Staged under the motto of ‘Machine Tools & More’, the six-day event in Hannover featured the latest machinery, solutions and services for every conceivable aspect of metalworking - a veritable tour de force by some 2,037 exhibitors from 41 different nations. It was confirmed by EMO that its international reputation is an unparalleled showcase for innovations.
Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of the German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW), the organiser of the event said, “The machine tool industry continued in full swing and in the course of six days, the order volume reached a minimum of €4.5 billion. Against the backdrop of an upswing in orders over the past few months, EMO’s positive outcome meant an even stronger market footing for exhibitors.”
With nearly 40 per cent of all EMO attendees coming from abroad, exhibitors were especially delighted with the event’s international turnout. “The strong international appeal makes EMO unique throughout the industry and is a key factor in its success,” said Schäfer, adding that he saw EMO as a reflection of an ongoing globalisation. Commensurately, 55 per cent of EMO trade visitors reported coming to the show with concrete investment plans. Among foreign visitors, this figure reached 75 per cent.
This year at EMO Premier showcased a range of gear hobbing machines and provided technical literature on the complete range of our gear cutting machines, vertical turning centres and machining centres.
