EMO Hannover is about to kick off: Focus on Business, Connectivity and Sustainability

September 11, 2023

EMO Hannover 2023, the largest machine tool exhibition in Europe, returns to Hannover, Germany in 4 years for six days from September 18-23. It brings together more than 1,750 exhibitors from 42 countries and regions. The exhibition presents solutions focused on the three futures of business, connectivity and sustainability in production. 

1,750+ exhibitors from 42 countries 

EMO Hannover 2023, one of the world’s four largest machine tool exhibitions, is about to open. EMO, which has been held twice in Hannover, Germany, and once in Milan, Italy, in the fall of odd-numbered years, is returning to Hannover for the first time in four years. 

The remarkable thing about EMO Hannover is its international character. More than 1,750 companies and organizations from 42 countries and regions around the world are exhibiting at this year’s show. The previous show in Hannover in 2019 attracted 2,211 exhibitors from 47 countries and regions and 116,706 visitors from 149 countries. Around 51% of visitors came from outside Germany. Dr. Markus Heering, Executive Director of the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW), expressed his confidence that “the breadth of technical offerings at the international trade fair for production technology is unparalleled.” 

Under the main theme of “Innovate Manufacturing”, the exhibition presents a wide range of solutions focusing on the three key areas of the future: Business, Connectivity and Sustainability in Production. 

The “Future of Connectivity Area” and the “Additive Manufacturing Area”, which focus on new ways of data exchange and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and the “Open Space Cobot Solutions Area”, which showcases the applications and possibilities of collaborative robots, are located in Hall 9.  Hall 16 features the “Future of Sustainability in Production Area,” showcasing cutting-edge, environmentally friendly manufacturing technology solutions. 

One of the highlights in particular is “umati”, a common interface standard for machine tools and industrial robots that Germany is promoting as a standard. At the special booth for umati in Hall 9, a large-scale live demonstration is planned with the participation of more than 300 partner companies. 

Get ready for the premieres 

There are about 70 companies and organizations from Japan participating in the exhibition. DMG MORI proposes process integration, automation and digital transformation (DX) by using the entire Hall 2 to create a huge city called “DMG MORI City”. The company is exhibiting 39 machines, including world premieres such as the “CTX beta 450 TC” multitasking machine and the “INH 63” 5-axis horizontal machining center, as well as 22 automation solutions in an area of approximately 8,300 square meters. 

Under the theme “Feel the Power of Green Manufacturing”, Okuma presents several new products, including machining centers and multitasking machines. The company is also exhibiting three world premieres and four machines making their European debut.
