EuroBLECH 2012 to Focus on a Sustainable Future


EuroBLECH 2012, scheduled from 23-27 October 2012 in Hanover, Germany, puts a special focus on efficient technology and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes. "This year's theme of the world's leading technology exhibition for sheet metal working 'For a sustainable future' is inspired by overall industry trends such as sustainability, awareness of resources, energy efficiency and mobility. Major developments in sheet metal working include lightweight construction, intelligent use of materials, 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.


A total of 1,500 exhibitors from 41 countries have already booked their stands at EuroBLECH 2012, covering eight exhibition halls at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds. International attendance is, once again, very high at this year's event. Almost 48% of the exhibiting companies come from outside Germany, with Italy, Turkey, China, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Spain, Austria, France, Taiwan and the USA being the ten largest exhibitor countries after Germany.

EuroBLECH 2012 will show the entire technology chain of sheet metal working, including high tech as well as conventional machinery and tools. Visitors can enjoy a large number of live machine demonstrations; and many of these machines will be world premieres. Exhibiting research institutions complement the event by providing the necessary foundations for Research & Development.
