EuroBLECH 2012 – Focus on efficient and environmentally friendly technology
EuroBLECH 2012 – International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition:
Focus on efficient technology and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes
EuroBLECH is the world’s largest exhibition for the sheet metal working industry. The event is renowned as the leading international trade exhibition and a trend barometer for this industry sector. With this year’s theme “For a sustainable future”, EuroBLECH puts a special focus on energy efficient technology, environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and intelligent use of material.
Currently, a total of 1,340 exhibitors from 37 countries have booked their stands at EuroBLECH 2012, from 23-27 October 2012 in Hanover, Germany, covering a net exhibition space of more than 84,000 square metres. This is an increase in floor space of more than 6% compared with the previous show.
“This thoroughly positive outlook for this year’s EuroBLECH reflects a further recovery of the sheet metal working industry; and it also shows that the industry sector is inspired by overall trends such as sustainability, awareness of resources, energy efficiency and mobility. Major developments in sheet metal working focus upon lightweight construction, intelligent use of material, processing of hybrid structures as well as new applications of established production processes,” says Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director EuroBLECH, on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
“Visitors to the exhibition can look forward to discovering a large number of machine demonstrations throughout the eight exhibition halls, as live presentation of innovative machinery and systems is traditionally a major focus for participating companies at EuroBLECH,” explains Nicola Hamann.
International attendance, a further characteristic of EuroBLECH, is, once again, very high at this year’s exhibition. Almost 48% of the companies that have already booked their stands come from outside Germany, with Italy, Turkey, China, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Spain being the biggest exhibitor countries after Germany.
EuroBLECH 2012 will occupy halls 11,12,13,14,15,16,17 and 27 at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds. The exhibition profile represents the entire sheet metal working technology chain: sheet metal, semi-finished and finished products, handling, separation, forming, flexible sheet metal working, joining, welding, surface treatment, processing of hybrid structures, tools, quality control, CAD/CAM systems and R&D.
