“We are delighted with the fantastic response that EMO Hannover, the world’s leading trade fair for metalworking, has again received from all sides,” says EMO General Commissioner Carl-Martin Welcker. “The exhibitor directory shows a clear plus in comparison to the last EMO and already reads like a who’s who of the international machine tool industry”, he continues.

Market leaders in all technology sectors, such as DMG Mori, FFG, Mazak, Siemens, Grob, Doosan, Fanuc, Okuma, Makino, Index, GF Machining Solu-tions, Chiron, Trumpf, SLM, Stratasys, Paul Horn, Iscar, Sandvik, Kuka and many, many more, will be present. New companies are added daily. Commis-sioner Welcker: “It’s also good to see that many exhibitors have increased their stand space and are now even more representative than last time”.

EMO Hannover 2019 will take place from 16 to 21 September under the motto Smart technologies driving tomorrow’s production! A new exhibition area IoT in production underscores its claim to position itself as a platform for networking in production. Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Managing Director of EMO organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), explains: “IoT in production provides a complete overview of the central aspects of networking, including data security, data analysis, process monitoring, predictive maintenance, smart data management and much more”.

Many advantages for members of the Club of Metalworking

EMO Hannover 2019 therefore promises to be particularly exciting. This is also attractive for the members of the Club of Metalworking who want to come to EMO. The VDW founded this network for international experts in production technology in May of this year. “The advantages of a membership are being exploited for the first time at EMO Hannover,” says Schäfer. It is free of charge and offers attractive services. Every member, from skilled worker to managing director, is welcome – in addition to admission tickets, there is an online forum, free public transport tickets for visiting the trade fair, a newsletter and a lounge for club members.
