EMO Hannover 2017: digitisation and networking in focus
Following a four-year pause, EMO - the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector will once again be opening its doors in Hanover, from 18 to 23 September 2017. With its motto of Connecting systems for intelligent production, it will be spotlighting the issues of digitisation and networking for production operations. Germany's President Frank-Walter Steinmeier will in September be ceremonially opening the EMO Hannover 2017.
The opening ceremony is scheduled to last about an hour on 18 September. Besides Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Lower Saxony's Prime Minister Stephan Weil and CECIMO's President Luigi Galdabini will also be speaking. After this, the President will be taking an exhaustive tour of the fair. The paramount topics of discussion in the international world of production technology are digitalisation and networking, as the EMO's motto communicates. The EMO's organisers are confident that the EMO Hannover 2017 will generate important impetus for implementing the much-discussed concept of Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things (IoT).
As an innovation forum and trendsetter, the EMO Hannover 2017 will in addition be presenting a broad supporting programme themed around commercial and technical issues. Keywords here include Industry 4.0, the production operations of tomorrow, additive manufacturing processes, metal-cutting in the aerospace industry, the safety of machine tools, the development of the markets in the USA, Mexico, and India, start-ups for intelligent production, youth recruitment, etc.
