International manufacturers of production technology will be presenting smart technologies for the entire value chain at EMO Hannover 2023, September 18 - 23 2023. Under the banner of Innovate Manufacturing, the global trade fair for production technology will showcase the entire range of modern metalworking technology at the heart of every industrial production process. The latest equipment will be on display, as will efficient technical solutions, product-related services, sustainable production methods, and more.

The focus of EMO Hannover is on cutting and forming machine tools, manufacturing systems, precision tools, automated material handling, computer technology, industrial electronics, and accessories. EMO visitors come from all major industrial sectors including machine and plant construction, the automotive industry and parts suppliers, aerospace technologies, precision engineering and optics, shipbuilding, medical engineering, tool and mold making, steel, and lightweight construction.

“As the second largest market for manufacturing technology, the United States imports almost half of its demand,” explains Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of EMO organizer VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association), Frankfurt am Main, Germany. “Germany meets 17% of US machine tool demand and is the second largest supplier after Japan. That’s why it makes perfect sense for U.S. manufacturing experts to come to EMO Hannover 2023,” Schäfer adds.

More than 2,100 international manufacturers will be showcasing their latest technology offerings for production at EMO Hannover 2023, including around 750 German and 100 Japanese companies.

“The Future of Connectivity” is a key focus topic in the industry and will be at EMO Hannover 2023.

“The German engineering industry is convinced that open standards for customers and system suppliers worldwide are a key prerequisite for effective networking, allowing data to be collected, analyzed, and fed back smoothly across all technologies in the factory,” Schäfer says.

Productivity can also be increased through smart digitalization solutions. In the new “IIoT in Production” area, EMO Hannover will spotlight vertical networking and present solutions such as data analytics, data management, digital twins, cloud services, process monitoring, predictive maintenance, artificial intelligence, and cyber security.

“The successful integration of networking – both horizontally between machines, systems, tools, measuring devices, etc., and vertically from the shop floor to the cloud – will help determine how competitive companies and entire industries will be in the future,” Schäfer concludes.

Registration for exhibitors at EMO Hannover 2023 is now available. Until October 15, 2022, there is an attractive early-bird offer available at https://emo-hannover.com/registration.

EMO Hannover is the number one international meeting place for the industry. More than 2,200 exhibitors from 47 countries attracted nearly 120,000 trade visitors from around 150 countries at EMO Hannover 2019.
