The EMO Hannover 2013, the world’s biggest metalworking forum, will be held next year from September 16-21.

The theme for the prestigious trade fair is Intelligence in Production.

Exhibitors from all over the world will be spotlighting their solutions for the challenges of an internationally focused industry in the 21st century.

"Our customers are facing major challenges worldwide", says Dr Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of the EMO organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association) in Frankfurt, Germany.

“In the face of enormous pressure on costs, plus exceptionally tough requirements for efficiency and minimised environmental impact, said Dr Schäfer. “Production operations will have to be maximally cost-effective in the future as well. "Production experts from all over the world are seeking answers to these challenges, which is why they are looking forward with keen anticipation to the EMO Hannover 2013."

In the past 20 years, international machine tool consumption has risen by 70 per cent. More than half of the world's production output of machine tools is exported. From Europe alone comes one machine in two, delivered to more than 70 different countries.

“This opens up major opportunities for the vendors of production technology who respond appropriately to regional idiosyncrasies and customers' wishes, said Dr Schäfer.

"Customers want can-do partners on the global market."

At the EMO Hannover 2013, about 2,000 firms from all over the world will be showcasing their products and services.

Registration documents for the EMO Hannover are now being sent to more than 60 countries. The closing date for registrations is December 31, 2012.
