This further gives impetus to our idea that the regional machines tools are the way forward to address the requirements of the Original Equipment Manufacturers, as well as component manufacturers in the Tier II and Tier III cities.”
Organized by the Indian Machine Tools Manufacture’s Association (IMTMA), the exhibition was held for four days and served as a platform to demonstrate the latest manufacturing technologies. The expo covered both metal cutting and metal forming technologies including automation and robotics, tooling systems, CAD/CAM and other technologies, which are essential for today’s manufacturing.
The Delhi Machine Tool Expo turned out to be fruitful both for the visitors as well as the exhibitors and most of the exhibitors were satisfied with the quality of the crowd and the business opportunities that the exhibition provided them.
Continuing with the idea, the next Regional Machine Tool Exhibition will be the second edition of Pune Machine Tool Expo, which will be held from September 27–30, 2018 before returning to Delhi in 2019.
