Chevalier Talks Tech, Introduces News Machines at EMO
From Sept. 16-21, EMO Hannover, widely regarded as the world’s largest and most important trade show for the metalworking industry, was the epicenter for the exhibition of new and diverse machines, ranging from turning, drilling, boring, milling, transfer, grinding, tool grinding, gear cutting and finishing, sawing and cutting-off, and screwing and threading. Also featured were flexible manufacturing cells and systems. About 117,000 production specialists from 150 countries convened this year in Hannover, Germany. The exchange of industrial know-how and networking events benefited the entire machine tool industry.
EMO Hannover has a strong international profile. More than half of all attendees came from abroad, split almost evenly between other European countries and overseas. A 20 percent increase in overseas attendance in 2019 compared with the last show in 2017 was particularly impressive.
