“The EMO Hannover is not only the most important meeting point for all players in the metalworking sector, both manufacturers and users. It is traditionally seen as an innovation forum and a trend-setter as it addresses important issues in the world of metalworking, and drives them forward,” Miller says. A wide and varied supporting programme will take place this year, addressing technical and commercial issues.
The paramount topics of discussion in the international world of production technology are digitisation and networking as the EMO’s motto communicates. Mechanical sturdiness, dependable components, reliable machinery control systems, plus intelligent process design and control—these are the foundations for quality, productivity and cost-efficient manufacturing. A broad spectrum of different machines for this purpose will be showcased at the EMO Hannover as well as classical performance features to approaches for new capabilities.
‘India Day’ at the EMO Hannover 2017
Currently, India is the only BRIC nation to report significant growth in industrial production output and capital investment. In the machine tool industry, the country ranks 8th among the world’s largest markets, with a volume of most recently 1.6 billion euros in 2015, which corresponds to a growth rate of 7 per cent when calculated in euros.
The EMO Hannover 2017 will focus on this attractive, high-potential market. The “India Day” on 20th September 2017 will feature reports exclusively from Indian experts, including representatives of the machine tool federation IATMA. Representatives from Indian user sectors will be addressing technical and commercial trends from the automotive and aviation industries.
India’s economy is targeting growth
India’s economy is currently growing faster than other industrial countries. The manufacturing sector contributes only 15 per cent to the nation’s GDP and hence there is enormous potential for growth. The Union government aims to upsize the reserves with its “Make in India” campaign, and with the aid of capital investment from abroad.
India also produces its own machine tools. With 622 million euros in 2015, the country ranks 12th among the most important manufacturing nations. Indian exhibitors have already registered for the EMO Hannover 2017, keen to showcase their range of machinery for high-ranking international production experts from the global elite. Companies participating include Jyoti, ACE Designers, Forbes & Company, and many more.“Indian manufacturers need comprehensive information on new solutions for their production operations. Exhibitors at the EMO Hannover 2017 will include representatives from all important vendor nations for India’s industrial sector,” says Christoph Miller of the VDW. On 20th September 2017, experts will be reporting on technical and commercial trends in India and mapping out the resultant challenges for production technology. The EMO Hannover 2017 will provide numerous specific stimuli for the practical use of new solutions meeting every need, under widely varying preconditions.
