EMO Hanover 2017: All the signs point to networking
The EMO in Hanover is a permanent date in the calendar for exhibitors from the metalworking industry. This year's industry gathering took place from 18– 23.09.2017 under the slogan "Connecting systems for intelligent production". As in previous years, new standards were set: the 2,200 exhibitors and 130,000 visitors – of whom almost half were from outside Germany – are an indication of the growing importance of the trade fair and underline the increasingly international orientation of this event.
Industry 4.0 is gaining ground, including in the metalworking industry. Companies are noticeably more engaged with the development of smarter production processes: not only here in Germany, but also worldwide. One of the features of Industry 4.0 is, for example, the focus on networking and digitalisation of products, production, manufacturing and the logistics chain. Against this background, integrated concepts are now in demand. Many of the national and international exhibitors were displaying their product solutions in this field.
Companies must have a high degree of flexibility in order to react appropriately to the requirements of implementing industry 4.0. Customers find this flexibility in the PFLITSCH product range and portfolio of services. On our trade fair stand in Hall 25, Stand E48, we presented the easyRoute tool, which allows engineers to design efficient trunking component assemblies and therefore save money and time. Our visitors were also able to find out more about machine tools specifically designed to cut and shape PFLITSCH trunking. In the cable gland segment, the split cable gland systems for preassembled cables and the highly effective EMC cable glands of the UNI Dicht® and blueglobe® product range were also on show.
The next date in the PFLITSCH trade fair calendar is the company's participation in the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg. There you will have the opportunity to find out about our range of products and services in Hall 5, Stands 371 and 373.
