Frankfurt am Main, 13 March 2017. – "The EMO Hannover 2017 will be the highlight of the year for the metalworking sector," says a gratified Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of the EMO's organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association), in Frankfurt am Main. From 18 to 23 September, it will once again be the international meeting point for trade visitors interested in production technology. Under the motto of "Connecting systems for intelligent production", the focus here will be on networking and digitisation.
The VDW will shortly be publishing the provisional EMO exhibitors' directory under www.emo-hannover.de . So far, around 2,000 exhibitors from 42 different countries have registered. That means that this year the event is well on the way to topping the record figures achieved by the EMO Hannover in 2013. The major exhibitors in 2017 include DMG Mori, Mazak, Fanuc, FFG, Grob, Doosan, Okuma, Makino and Siemens. "The complete EMO exhibitors' directory reads like a Who's Who of international production technology manufacturers," says Wilfried Schäfer.
Numerous supporting events will round off the EMO Hannover's attractions
The EMO Hannover is not only the most important meeting point for all protagonists in the metalworking sector, manufacturers and users alike. It is also traditionally a forum for innovations and trendsetters. "We shall be organising numerous events designed to address and indeed progress important technical and commercial issues in the world of metalworking," reports Wilfried Schäfer. They complement the manufacturers' range of exhibits, and communicate to visitors a comprehensive picture of trends and issues themed around metalworking.
They are exemplified by the "Industry 4.0 Area" with its presentation forum addressing multifarious aspects of the motto embraced by the EMO Hannover 2017: "Connecting systems for intelligent production", the "India Day", the conference on the topic of "Additive Manufacturing", the seminar on machine safety, or the special show on "Aerospace Technology". The picture is rounded off by other activities themed around youth recruitment, a match-making initiative, or a special stand featuring international start-ups.
