EMO, arguably the most important machine tool show of 2013 (September 16 to 21 in Hannover, Germany) includes a technical conference called the VDMA Congress. Jointly organized by the VDMA (the German Engineering Federation) and the VDW (the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), the theme of this year’s congress is “Producing More Intelligently.” Presentations will center on three topics: excellence, efficiency and intelligence in manufacturing. The two-day conference will take place September 16 and 17 during the opening days of the trade show.
