Milan—After six years, EMO, the worldwide exhibition of machine tools is back in Italy. The tradeshow, taking place October 5 – 10, is expected to draw 150,000 visitors from approximately 100 countries.

More than 1,300 exhibitors are registered to date—the majority from Italy, followed by Germany, Taiwan, China and Switzerland.

The halls of the exhibition centre at fieramilano Rho-Pero will host the biggest factory in the world, according to organizers CECIMO, the European Association for Machine Tool Industries.

The exhibit will showcase cutting-edge machine tools, robots, automation, additive manufacturing, mechatronic solutions and auxiliary technologies.

“EMO has always been considered the most important event at the disposal of trade operators from the world’s manufacturing industry to keep up-to-date on the new production technologies,” said Pier Luigi Streparava, appointed by CECIMO as Commissioner General EMO MILANO 2015

“It’s exactly for this reason, that we decided to include additive manufacturing into the technological index of products of the sector’s leading international exhibition: this is one of the technologies that will be increasingly developed in future and to which the tradeshow will dedicate a special in-depth focus.”

The biennial show alternates between Milan and Hanover. To learn more visit the EMO Milano web site.
