From 25-29 October, 2016, the 24th International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition will open its doors again in Hannover, Germany. Among sheet metal working specialists, the show is renowned as the key marketplace to find the latest equipment and services in all areas of sheet metal working.
The exhibition presents the entire sheet metal working technology chain, including sheet metal; semi-finished and finished products; handling; separation; forming; flexible sheet metal working; joining; additive manufacturing; welding and surface treatment; processing of hybrid structures; tools; quality control; CAD/CAM/CIM systems; and R&D. At EuroBLECH, some 1,600 exhibitors from 40 countries will present their cutting-edge technology live to a worldwide audience of some 60,000 trade visitors.
Today’s production is undergoing major changes. From automated production to machine-to-machine communication, intelligent process chains and smart manufacturing has now become an integral part of sheet metal working. Data exchange along the entire production value chain paves the way for optimised manufacturing processes, improved planning reliability, more flexibility and higher product quality.
With increasing product variety and decreasing batch sizes, manufacturing processes in sheet metal working are becoming ever more complex and require highly efficient and flexible solutions. Companies in the industry are therefore currently facing an environment of change that requires vital decisions for the long-term adaptation of their production processes.
With this year’s theme, ‘The New Generation of Sheet Metal Working’, EuroBLECH 2016 reflects this crucial development in production technology. As the global business barometer and leading industry platform for the sheet metal working industry, EuroBLECH will present visitors with a large variety of tailor-made solutions for optimising and modernising production processes.
