Want to learn about the latest in production technology? Production experts visiting EMO Hannover 2023 will be doing just this in September 2023. They can experience live and on site the latest trends at a total of four joint booths.
These booths will be focusing on additive manufacturing, connectivity, open space cobot solutions, and sustainability. Martin Göbel, Director Exhibitions at the EMO organizer VDW (Verein Deutscher Werkzeugmaschinenfabriken, or German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) in Frankfurt am Main, knows the value of a visit: “Nowhere else can production specialists experience the sector’s innovations so close up – presented in thematic packages over the entire process chain, and up to date at all times. So, if you’re coming to EMO Hannover 2023 in September, you shouldn’t miss out on the joint booths.”
Innovative 3D printing as a fixed constituent
Here companies will be presenting pioneering concepts from the whole bandwidth of the additive process chain, whether direct and indirect 3D printing technologies, engineering materials, or rapid product development (RPD).
Connectivity of production processes at a glance
Here visitors will encounter new applications, automation processes, smart production, Industry 4.0, machine learning, predictive maintenance, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), and many other aspects. And the editorial series Future of Connectivity will also be reporting on these subjects in the run-up to EMO Hannover.
Humans and robots work hand in hand
More and more companies are investing heavily in automation to maintain their productivity and competitive strength, to augment their resilience and versatility, and to keep pace with growing demand. For instance, the number of new industrial robots installed in 2021 exceeded the 500 000 mark for the first time – a new record.
Specifically cobots, or collaborative robots, are in high demand. They already now make up 7.5 per cent of all installed industrial robots, and this is an upward trend.
The Open Space Cobot Solutions Area is therefore fully dedicated to the interactions between humans and industrial robots and their actual and potential applications. Manufacturers will be presenting to an international trade public their automation solutions based on cobots and their innovative use: Grippers, image processing, measuring systems, software, industrial electronics, feed systems, and much more can be experienced up close.
Sustainability to underlie tomorrow’s production
Here visitors can learn about the current trends in energy efficiency, the integration of renewable energies, circular economy, and lifecycle concepts – a fair highlight, not only with an eye to climate protection and reduced production costs in times of persistently scarce energy and raw materials. The focal theme Future of Sustainability in Production is also the subject of professional articles that appear regularly online.
