We look back on an exciting week at the EuroBLECH 2016 in Hanover and thank you for the numerous visits to our booth and the interesting contacts we could make during the week. In particular, our well-attended stand party on Wednesday extended discussions were held in a relaxed atmosphere – not only on Professional.
This year, the trade fair attracted a total of 60,636 visitors from around a hundred countries, who were informed about the latest sheet metal processing technologies and made investments for their companies at the stands of 1,503 exhibitors from 41 countries. With a record share of 39% foreign visitors and 54% foreign exhibitors, the international orientation of the fair was clearly visible. Most important visitor countries on the Euro plate in 2016 were, in addition to Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Great Britain, Turkey and India.
Our booth came with a modern and open design in a top location. With the aid of several exhibits, we were able to present the breadth of our delivery program. The massive forged block positioned at the entrance of the stand attracted considerable attention, which was flame cut in a thickness of 1,200 mm and then mechanically machined. But also the forged and finished shaft with complex geometry, which had been turned, milled, drilled and polished, was a hanger for discussions with the specialist audience. In addition, a drilled shaft, which had been manufactured with our vibration-damped drill rod, was exhibited.
