EMO Hannover 2013 on the finishing straight

Following an excellent start, the EMO Hannover 2013 is now entering the finishing straight. Until Saturday, more than 2,100 exhibitors from 43 different nations will still be showcasing their very latest machines and solutions for industrial production operations at the world's premier trade fair for the metalworking sector. The EMO Hannover 2013 had been opened on Monday by Germany's President Joachim Gauck. At numerous exhibitors, trade visitors can find out what the EMO's motto "Intelligence in Production" actually means in practice. In many cases, the focus here is on the process chain, the networking of the machine with the company's overall software, or on upgrading efficiency levels. New control system user interfaces with intuitive man-machine communication, programming and machine status diagnostics using smartphones or a tablet PC, or automatic detection and correction of unsafe machinery states are just a few examples out of many.
