For the third time, organisations and companies in the sheet metal working industry are invited to enter the EuroBLECH 2018 online competition in five categories, now open at the EuroBLECH website.

Recognition will be given for best practice, innovation, excellence and outstanding performance. The online competition is now open to all companies or organisations from all over the world in the sheet metal working industry if they match the requirements of at least one category.
“This year’s ‘Step into the digital reality’ competition engages the businesses in digital and automated processes. The five categories stand for late-breaking issues in the digital context of the sheet metal working industry: The first category ‘Digital Transformation’ is open to businesses with excellent ability in applying smart manufacturing methods. The second one, ’25 EuroBLECH shows’, will select the funniest EuroBLECH story, either from visitors or exhibitors who participated in EuroBLECH over its long history. ‘Cyber Security’ as the third category highlights the importance of secure data exchange within a production environment. The fourth category is ‘Best Start-up’ and will reward new businesses for outstanding performance. Pioneers in lightweight and component design for sheet metal working are invited to enter the fifth and last category, ‘E-Mobility’,” explained Mack Brooks Exhibitions, the EuroBLECH organiser.
