The focus of this year’s EMO show being held in Hannover this September will be on four main areas related to modern manufacturing: additive manufacturing, connectivity, cobot solutions and sustainability.
These themes or sections will be featured in four areas or what show organisers the VDMA (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) call “joint booths”.
Martin Göbel, director exhibitions at EMO commented: “Nowhere else can production specialists experience the sector’s innovations so close up – presented in thematic packages over the entire process chain, and up to date at all times. So, if you’re coming to EMO Hannover 2023 in September, you shouldn’t miss out on the joint booths.”
In the additive manufacturing section companies will be presenting pioneering concepts from the whole bandwidth of the additive process chain, whether direct and indirect 3D printing technologies, engineering materials, or rapid product development (RPD).
At the future of connectivity section visitors will encounter new applications, automation processes, smart production, Industry 4.0, machine learning, predictive maintenance, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), and many more developments.
The cobot solutions themed section will be dedicated to interactions between humans and industrial robots and their potential applications. Manufacturers will be presenting to the trade public their automation solutions based on cobots and their innovative uses including: grippers, image processing, measuring systems, software, industrial electronics, feed systems, and more.
At the sustainability in production section visitors can learn about the current trends in energy efficiency, the integration of renewable energies, circular economy, and lifecycle concepts – in light of climate protection and reduced production costs in times of persistently scarce energy and raw materials.
Mr Göbel concludes: “The joint booths are not only an excellent opportunity for visitors to learn about the latest trends and topics. Exhibitors too can focus specifically on the addressed products and technologies. Our offer is intended to give all exhibitors from the start-up to the global player an opportunity to present their innovations simply, economically, and tailored to their target groups. As all-inclusive packages, the joint booths provide the perfect framework for this.”
