Travels of the World Introduction

Europe in Sodick’s Eyes

Held biannually in Europe!
The world’s largest machine tools trade show, EMO Hannover 2013

Machine tools of all sorts were brought from around the world to Hannover from September 16-21, 2013, for the Exposition Mondiale de la Machine Outil (EMO, Machine Tool World Exposition).
Hannover is the site of Deutsche Messe, the pride of Germany and the largest exhibition center in the world.
During a week, the EMO assembled people and machines from every corner of the globe. Sodick too brought the exhibition to a successful conclusion as a leading electrical discharge machine (EDM) manufacturer with its products equipped with cutting-edge technology.

In the pages that follow, we present to you some scenes from EMO Hannover 2013, both on the floor and back stage.
The largest international trade show in the world related to metal working, EMO welcomes over 2,000 exhibitors and draws some 145,000 attendees from more than 100 countries.
With “Intelligence in Production ” as the theme for the 2013 event, many manufacturers displayed innovative technologies.
Today, machine tool manufacturers have production bases throughout the world—including in the Europe and Americas, China, and the ASEAN states—and competition transcending national borders has begun.
