EMO is the world’s largest metalworking trade show and in 2015, it takes place in Milano, Italy, October 5-10.
More than 400 companies have already registered for the show in just one month. That’s 20 per cent more than the number of applications in the same period for the 2009 show held in the city, according to CECIMO, the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries.
The world’s biggest factory will be set up over 345,000 square meters at the fieramilano exhibition centre in Rho-Pero where exhibitors will display machine tools, robots, automation systems, additive manufacturing technologies, mechatronic solutions and auxiliary technologies, representing international manufacturers operating in an industry worth 64 billion euro.
For the first time at EMO, event organizers will devote an exclusive area to additive manufacturing technologies. Exhibitors will display machines along with other products designed for the mechanical engineering industry. A whole series of meetings, workshops and conferences will take place during the exhibition, including an event organized by UCIMU, the Italian machine tool industry association, in cooperation with AITA and CECIMO, aiming to highlight the competitive edge arising from the use of additive technologies for specific manufacturing processes and processing techniques.
“EMO has always been the most important occasion for the world’s manufacturing industry operators to familiarize with the latest manufacturing technologies,” states Pier Luigi Streparava, appointed by CECIMO as General Commissioner for EMO MILANO 2015 -. This is why we decided to integrate the index of products of the exhibition with additive manufacturing, one of the fastest growing technologies of today to which EMO will devote a particular focus”.
1,600 exhibitors and 150,000 visitors from approximately 100 countries are expected to take part in EMO MILANO 2015 which will benefit from its co-location with EXPO 2015 when Milan will, take on a completely new façade as well as better mobility due to a reshuffle and enhancement of the city’s transport network.
