2017 is EMO year. Following a four-year break, the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector will be held once more in Hanover, from 18 to 23 September 2017. Themed “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, manufacturers of production technology from all over the world will be showcasing what needs to be done in order to generate maximised customer benefits from digitisation and networking of production operations. At the same time, of course, they will be striving to improve their own competitiveness with these corporate capabilities.


“Although there is no product called Industry 4.0, trade visitors will be encountering digitisation and networking at the fair in multifarious manifestations,” says Carl Martin Welcker, General Commissioner of EMO Hannover 2017. “The organisers of EMO Hannover have expanded the event’s nomenclature in order to render this important issue transparent for the visitors,” adds Carl Martin Welcker. Exhibitors will accordingly be showcasing solutions for predictive maintenance and software programs, plus consultancy services for Industry 4.0 and the internet of things.

Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance based on data analyses, for example, are important aspects of Industry 4.0. They offer users extensive potential for efficiency enhancements. The same applies for simulations, economic resource utilisation and other new options opened up by analysing the enormous quantities of data from production operations. New solutions for this are emerging on the market every day. “EMO Hannover is the ideal platform for obtaining a comprehensive overview of the production, consultancy and service-oriented business models so far available, as made possible by Big Data and the networking of the entire value creation chain,” says Carl Martin Welcker.
