EuroBLECH 2018: Step into the digital reality
EuroBLECH 2018, the 25th International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition, will take place from 23-26 October 2018 at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds in Germany. Around 1,500 exhibitors from 39 countries have already secured their stand space at the world’s leading trade exhibition for the sheet metal working industry. Currently, major exhibitor countries are Germany; Italy; Turkey; China; the Netherlands; Spain; Switzerland; Austria and the USA. This year’s event will also include the ‘Step into the digital reality’ online competition.
According to the organiser, MACK Brooks Exhibitions, the exhibiting companies have secured almost the entire exhibition space from the previous event. EuroBLECH 2016 concluded with a record net exhibition space of 87,800 square metres.
“Visitors to this year’s show can expect the complete spectrum of intelligent solutions and innovative machinery for modern production in sheet metal working, which are presented in the form of numerous live demonstrations at the exhibition stands. Digital transformation is playing a major role in the industry, which enables increased efficiency and higher levels of automation and predictive maintenance. These developments are reflected in this year’s motto for EuroBLECH, ‘Step into the Digital Reality’, since Industry 4.0 and the Smart Factory have become major topics in sheet metal working. This has now become an important area for small and medium-sized companies planning to invest in these technologies in the near future to gain a competitive advantage in their market,” Mack Brooks Exhibitions told ISMR.
