24/8/10 – Innovative Technologies the Focus for EuroBLECH 2010
24 August 2010
The technology exhibition, EuroBlech 2010, opens its doors on Sunday 26 October for the 21st time this year. Located in Hanover Germany, the focus for this years event will be on innovative technologies for the future of sheet metal working. This will include; enhanced fabrication processes for adapting to changing demand, intelligent systems for energy saving and environmentally friendly sustainable production and new materials as well as the trends in R&D.
EuroBLECH is now on a grand scale with 1,410 exhibitors from 42 contries expected to attend. Just under 50% of the attending companies are from outside Germany with the majority of International attendees coming from Italy and Turkey. There has been an increase in attendance from Asia, particularly from the metalworking industry in China, Taiwan and India.
2008 was a record year for attendance at EuroBLECH. A total of 69,400 visitors from 98 countries attended the show. Indicating an improvement in the metalworking industry as a whole.
The Hanover exhibition grounds location is to be used for EuroBLECH for the tenth year running. Originally launched in London in 1969, the trade show moved to Switzerland during the mid-70’s before finally showing in Germany in 1978, where it has remained ever since due to Germany’s connections to the sheet metal working industry.
EuroBLECH will cover the entire sheet metal working chain over the 7 halls of the world’s largest exhibition grounds, including; handling technology, forming technology, machine elements, surface technology and much more. It is aimed at anyone involved in sheet metal production, from all management levels and from the smallest companies to the biggest multi-national organizations. General attendees range from manufacturers, designers, buyers, engineers and students.
The organizers hope that EuroBLECH 2010 will act as a platform for the metalworking industry to progress from a down surge. “The current situation, a period of economic regeneration, demands a great deal of innovative capacity from every company. After a difficult time, it is important to now set the course for the future by sourcing the right equipment,” explains Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director EuroBLECH on behalf of the organizers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “For industry experts from all over the world, EuroBLECH 2010, with its theme ‘Time for Innovation’, is therefore the first choice when it comes to gaining a comprehensive overview of trends and innovative technology, and to finding suitable machinery and tailor-made solutions”’
