Additive manufacturing debuts at Emo Milano 2015, the world’s number one metalworking exhibition

Italy will host the 2015 edition of EMO, the world machine tool exhibition that runs every two years in Hannover and Milan, alternatively.


The 2015 EMO Milano exhibition, scheduled for October 5-10 at the Fieramilano convention center in Milan, Italy, will be the first edition of the show to devote an area exclusively to additive manufacturing technologies.

EMO, a biennial travelling exhibition sponsored by CECIMO, the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries, is considered to be the most important occasion for the world’s manufacturing industry operators to familiarise themselves with the latest manufacturing technologies. The exhibition’s comprehensive offer on display has always greatly attracted operators of all user sectors, such as carmakers, aerospace manufacturers, engineering and energy companies, and representatives of other sectors including producers of household appliances, biomedical, nanotechnologies and earthmoving machines.

Exhibitors will display their products, ranging from machine tools, robots, and automation systems to mechatronics and auxiliary technologies, representing an industry worth 64 billion euro, on more than 345,000 square meters of surface at the fieramilano premises. This year’s exhibition will mark the debut of additive technologies, a fast developing sector yet to be fully explored, which has chosen EMO as the ideal stage to present itself to the metalworking industry.

A special area will be exclusively devoted to additive manufacturing. There, exhibitors will display machines along with other products designed for the mechanical engineering industry. A whole series of meetings, workshops and conferences will take place during the exhibition, including an event organized by UCIMU in cooperation with AITA and CECIMO, aiming to highlight the competitive edge arising from the use of additive technologies for specific manufacturing processes and processing techniques.

All of this and much more will make up the additive manufacturing offer at EMO MILANO 2015, a unique event with some 1,600 exhibitors and 150,000 expected visitors from 100 countries.

“EMO has always played a pioneering role, anticipating market trends and presenting innovative solutions both in the machinery sector as well as in the fields of accessories and auxiliary technologies, with a particular focus on unexplored sectors”, says Pier Luigi Streparava, General Commissioner of EMO Milano 2015.

“For these reasons” – he continues – “a special area of the exhibition has been devoted to additive manufacturing, thus completing the 2015 world exhibition’s index of products with one of the fastest growing technologies, whose ground-breaking impact will be felt in the very near future”.
