The 20th International Exhibition for Metalworking Technologies is expected to take place fromFebruary 20–24 in Düsseldorf. The classical topics of metalworking are found at the core of this show such as machine tools, production systems, high-precision tools, automated material flows, computer technology, industrial electronics, and accessories.
Classical metalworking and innovation are of course not a contradiction at METAV. The latest technologies in traditional production technology can be seen at the fair, as can current solutions for Industry 4.0. With the core area, the show addresses numerous user industries including the automotive industry and its component suppliers, machine manufacturing, medical technology and aircraft construction, electrical engineering and electronics as well as the ironworking, sheet metal cutting and metalworking industries.
This heart of the fair is intrinsically connected with the so-called Areas – Quality, Additive Manufacturing, Moulding, Medical – which were successfully introduced with the new METAV concept in2016. The fair thus represents the reality of modern industrial manufacturing compressed into its grounds. Two areas are dedicated to special topics of production technology, and two others are focused on special industrial sectors.
