EMO Hannover 2013 Recap

VDW, the organization representing Germany’s machine tool builders, has issued its technical closing report on the EMO Hannover 2013 show from September 16 to 21, 2013. The report summarizes the new technology and trends evident at the show. Click here for the full report.

I like this quote from the opening paragraph: “One general trend is the incorporation of styling and operator-friendliness. Emulating the smartphones, numerous machinery control systems now feature a touch-screen. In conjunction with the design of other equipment, this combines to produce an attractive visual appearance.”

We agree. Here’s my take on these trends.

And here a similar view from Chris Koepfer, editor-in-chief of our sister publication, Production Machining, who also attended the show.
